original Budha Modl HU (Modified) engine and runs and drives

Army.  It also has the original brass data plate.  The tank 
also features a custom built replica of the M1916 Field Gun 
capable of firing blank shotgun shells.

This vehicle was manufactured by the C.L. Best Traction

French Renault FT17.  It was one of 952 received by the US 
Army and one of less than 20 known to exist today.

RUSSIAN T-54 MAIN BATTLE TANK

The T-54 was built in 1959 and has had all the required upgrades throughout the years with the Czech Army. The tank has had new batteries installed and has all fluids topped up.   It fires and runs very well.   The air start bottles are full but never tested.   The auto-stabilizing gun was said to have worked when it left South Hampton, UK but I have not been successful operating it. (it is a very dangerous game to play for the driver if it did work by non-trained crew members)  There are radios in the driver's compartment and commander's station.  It will need the proper headset connectors to see if they work.  I have no doubt they will work.   The tank, as told, came from a British Defense Contractor who had it for 10 years doing electronic testing.  The turret was removed during their ownership and refitted it when it was relocated to a large surplus operation up in Nottingham shire where I purchased it and was shipped to Port Hueneme, California. It was de-milled in the UK, the breech has a thick steel plate welded over it and passed customs at Port Hueneme.   All pertinent paperwork will be relinquished to the new owner.   The tank has had minimal success as a Hollywood picture vehicle, the reason for it's original purchase.  It was featured on the CD cover for a 'Yellowcard' album, a Japanese clothing fashion brand and a defense contractor in house film presentation.  Tank location is inland from Seal Beach, CA 30 miles south of Los Angeles.  The interior paint was re-sprayed to a very good degree with all original stenciling taped off.  All in all, it is very presentable and mechanically sound. I have owned this tank since 1996 and have enjoyed owning a "Cold War and later War Trophy"! It is currently painted dessert Tan from the Gulf War period .The new owner will be very pleased with the purchase.

1995 Bombardier-BAE Tracked Reconnaissance Vehicle (TRV) Stormer

A fully modern, very low time fully armored personnel carrier with fuel-efficient diesel engine, air conditioning, nuclear, chemical, biological (NBC) weapon protection system, night vision capable, GPS, intercom system, versatile interior, perfect sized for a multitude of missions.

The Stormer has an all-welded aluminum armor hull with Kevlar spall lining- like the US M-2 Bradley- with the driver at the left front, engine compartment to the right and the troop compartment at the rear. The driver has a hydraulic adjustable seat, four-point harness and a single-piece hatch cover that opens forward. In front there is a single wide-view periscope which can be replaced by a passive night vision scope. A full instrumentation panel is on the driver’s left and can be mounted outside the hull for open-hatch driving.

The vehicle commander sits behind the driver and has a rotational cupola with nine periscopes. The cupola has a single-piece hatch cover and external machine gun mount. The commander’s seat is hydraulic adjustable with full harness as well. Commander controls include the intercom system, fuel heater, air conditioning, and full chemical protection system operation. To the right of the commander is a radio operator’s position with hydraulic adjustable seat and four-point harness. This position also has a passive night vision periscope and military GPS system. These three positions constitute the vehicle crew.

The rear compartment can be configured in a number of ways. Seating for up to eight is possible, for a vehicle total of 11. All rear seating can be removed for cargo or specialized mission equipment. Access to the rear is through a large single door that opens to the right and incorporates a single vision block.

Other interior features include red/white interior lighting, fuel heater, fire extinguisher, fire detection alarm, drinking water dispenser, electric cooking vessel, and many storage compartments. Four brand new intercom headsets are also included.

A Perkins T6.3544 diesel is mounted to the right of the driver with air induction through armored louvers and Farr air cleaners. Engine cooling is by a single mixed-flow fan drawing air through the radiator, over the engine and through the outlet louvers. The exhaust is also cooled by some of this air. The engine is coupled to a David Brown Engineering Limited T300 foot-operated, seven-speed gearbox with automatic clutch. The engine compartment has a fully integrated fire extinguisher system.

The torsion bar suspension either side consists of six dual road wheels with the drive sprocket at the front and the idler at the rear. Tracks are single pin, steel links, with rubber bushes and integrally mounted rubber pads. The first, second and sixth road wheel stations have hydraulic shock-absorbers.

M2 half-track All original uncut armor with MG mounts!

 (French army) rebuilt engine has only 8 hours on it, so naturally it runs like a dream. The original fuel tanks are still in place so we ran the lines to a small auxiliary
 tank to avoid sediment and rust getting into the fuel system. Front tires are brand new, replaced just a few years ago. The Brakes are pretty poor, a few latches here and there have snapped, some light rust. IF your looking for a runner with unmolested original armor, this is your chance to own a fine Halftrack.

1944 Auto Car Personnel Carrier
Per data plate, half track converted to M-16A1 multi gun motor carriage April 1953Manufacturer’s serial # 1586
Ordinance Department serial # 1586

The half track is all original. The armor has never been cut or altered except for the M16A1 current configuration. The half track starts and runs flawlessly and I did replace the brakes and clutch for safety and drivability reasons when originally purchased. Although I was planning on a frame off restoration, the motor runs extremely strong and I drove it in a couple of parades as is. I just have way too many projects to complete and I know I just won’t get to this project and I would like to see someone get this vehicle that has the time to care for it properly and to share it with others. It has been stored in our company shop under a silk parachute for the last five years.
