CZECH OT-64-R-3M 8X8 Radio Command Amphibious APC

This strong engine has only 105 actual hours on it! Specs show operational range of 710 km and top speed of 94 km/h.

All hatches are operational and the turret easily/quickly cranks 360 degrees. Everything is original, though we'd installed modern air filter canister. We've also had all the wheels off, cleaned and honed cylinders, blew out brake lines, etc. I have shop manuals that go with it, that while in Czech, the exploded diagrams are comprehensive and very helpful. Also, has NBC positive air set-up, though filters likely need replacing. Two extendable antennas atop. It weighs 14.5 tons, length is 25', height is 9'5" and width is 8'3" and crew is from 2 to 15. It is even street legal as it's not oversized or overweight.

1944 WWII GERMAN ARTILLERY TRACTOR

Manufacturer: Steyr-Daimler-Deutz AG, Steyr, Oberdonau & Wien (Osterreich)
Production Year: 1944
Engine: Steyr 1500A, 3.5-liter,70-hp, air-cooled, eight-cylinder, gasoline
Length: 14-feet, 2-inches
Width: 5-feet, 10-inches
Height: 5-feet, 2-1/2-inches
Weight: Approximately 3-1/2-tons
Armor: None
Armament: None
Maximum Road Speed: 11-mph
Maximum Payload: 1-1/2-tons
Crew: Two

Very little specific information is known about the RSG tractor. It is believed to be a late war prototype intended to further simplify production of the RSO/03 tractor. RSO is an abbreviation of the German designation: Raupenschlepper-Ost (Tracked tractor-East). Conditions on the Eastern Front, where already poor roads turned to seas of mud during rainy seasons and slush in the spring thaw, dictated the development of the RSO tractor series. The RSO/01, the first production type, entered production in 1941. The simplified RSO/03 replaced the RSO/01 tractor in production starting in 1944. The RSO/03 had a significantly simplified cab with wooden panels that greatly reduced production time and costs. The majority of RSO tractors produced were of the RSO/03 type. The RSOs could carry a load of approximately 1-1/2-tons. Steering was accomplished through upright steering levers connected to hydraulic brakes on the sprockets and idlers - much in the same way as a typical World War II tank. The RSO tractors proved very useful and popular with the German army. They were used extensively by towed artillery units. More than 27,000 RSO tractors were built during WW II. The Vehicle is not currently running and is sold with bill of sale.

WWII STUART M5 LIGHT TANK (REPLICA)

This is an unusual vehicle to say the least, for someone who is not a die hard purist that wants something fun to play with and Parade or do reenactments, that is new and dependable, this is it. Built by Professionals in a Commercial shop it has many features you would not enjoy with a 1943 machine. Built using original Government Blueprints found on Ebay, using an original M5-HST bogie and track unit to build on a fully rebuilt International DT 466 Diesel engine was installed mated to a NEW ALLISON transmission. This tank will run faster that anyone wants to drive it. The inside is pretty much a shell but does have a 55MM main gun built by Bismark Guns that fires propane and Oxygen. It is very loud and rocks the Tank when fired. Because the same thickness metal as the original was used to build this machine it weighs 38,000.lbs. Many original M5 Stuart parts were used in construction of this replica as the photos show. So if you are not sure you want to pay 1/4 Million for used original  M5 here is a chance to buy a new one at half price.

1986 AM GENERAL M1044 MARINE CORPS ARMORED HUMVEE

This is a completely original M1044 HUMVEE, chassis number 013986 just as it returned from Iraq and Kuwait after the first Desert Storm and Panama conflict.  Authentic M1044s in private hands are extremely rare, less than a handful according to HUMVEE experts.  Most of the 1044s were given to local governments when the US forces departed, or were destroyed.  Some of the better units went back to AM GENERAL to be rebuilt into unarmored versions. 

This truck is the supplemental armor version, which has additional armor, and has all the original armored parts that the factory installed.  Originally painted green camo, it was painted with semi removable desert tan paint on the transport ship when it was shipped to Kuwait.  After its return to the US, most of the desert tan paint was removed, but some still evident.   

Wisconsin title, Form 97, and is legal for road use.  The odometer shows 23k original miles.  The gun turret revolves, opens and closes as it should.  The seals on the rear hatch have been replaced.  The right front corner of the hood had some minor damage and the hood has several surface cracks as most do.  The tires look new but have been on the vehicle since purchased in 1992.  I was told they have the run-flat rings in them.  I have never seen another real 1044 for sale anywhere.  Most of the HUMVEES in private hands today are M998 soft top troop carriers that came from Marine or Reserve bases in the US and were released and auctioned off in 1999. 

Currently M998s are being released by various bases, but are not road legal, the Bill of Sale clearly stating “For off road use only.”  As more of these trucks are being sold to private collectors and more people become aware of them the M1044 will become even more collectible. 

This truck runs very well, always starts immediately even after months of inactivity.  A few parts that could not be repaired have been replaced, such as some of the bullet proof side glass, which had “combat wounds” and could not be saved. The original glass is still in the rear left door but shows evidence of being shot.  Both windshields have some delamination between the glass layers but have not been replaced because they are original.  The right windshield still has the Panama sticker on it.  Several of the shields in the engine compartment have been replaced.  It has two new heavy duty nonmilitary batteries, the tool rack below the tailgate, a whip antenna, and will have a correct but nonfunctional winch mounted.

At full price the deactivated 50 caliber machine gun, a wire controlled surface to surface rocket launcher, a replica surface to air missile launcher, ammo boxes, helmets, first aid kit, gas mask, replica M16, camouflage netting, and slave cable, all shown in photos will be included.  

This is a rare opportunity for a serious collector to own an extremely rare and original armored vehicle with combat history that can be driven on the street and can be taken into some serious off road terrain.  While some people think they are ugly, everyone agrees that they are the ultimate BAD ASS TRUCKS!!

Mark 2 Saladin (FV601) 6X6 APC with 76mm Cannon 

The Saladin FV601 is a six-wheeled armored car built by Alvis and fitted with a 76mm gun and a manual/power-assisted turret system. The Saladin was the armored car of Alvis' FV600 series, using similar suspension and drive train components to the Saracen armored personnel carrier, Stalwart high mobility load carrier and Salamander fire tender. It is named after the warrior Saladin, as Alvis used names beginning with an "S" for the whole range of FV600 vehicles. Used extensively by the British Army, it replaced the AEC Armored Car that had been in service since World War II. 

This particular vehicle is a Mark 2 Saladin. It was used in the British Cyprus military operations in Cyprus as part of the Royal Armored Corps' Cyprus Armored Squadron and retains its Cyprus Desert Camouflage paint scheme (desert tan and black).

1944 M7-B1 Priest 105 Howitzer Motor Gun Carriage (Tank Destroyer) 

A perfect full ground up restoration with NOS engine, tracks, bogies, etc.  A true one of a kind very rare tank.  This vehicle is very rare and seldom seen in collections today.  It essentially is an open topped Sherman tank complete with an anti-aircraft 50 cal machine gun.   

The main differences between the early M7's and the M7-B1 were the switch from the M3 Sherman chassis with the R-975 to the M4 Sherman using the Ford GAA V8 engine with 500 horsepower from 1100 Cubic Inches. The primary reason for the change was the ability to go from a 35 to a 65 degree elevation for the 105 Howitzer. The V-8 set lower in the hull allowing lowering the M2-A1 Howitzer to achieve the goal of a 65 degree angle. Some of the low profile was lost but it was agreed that it was worth it.  The 105 had a muzzle velocity of 1,550 feet per second and a range of 7 Miles. The machine gunner's pulpit was also raised accordingly to allow for a clear field of fire for the machine gunner. This particular M7-B1 is in beautiful condition as you can see from the photos and has a completely rebuilt GAA V8 engine.

This is a 1985 Federal Motors (Emergency 1) MK44 Armored Personnel Carrier. It has the following modern luxuries that can't be found in any other armored military vehicle that can be owned in private hands.
 

* Deutz V8 Air Cooled Diesel Engine *
*Twin Disc 8 speed Automatic Transmission (4 spds. forward & 4 spds. backwards) *
* Air Conditioning *
* Amphibious *

It also has power steering, 2/4 wheel drive, armor plated, large hydraulic winch concealed in the front of the chassis, weapons mount over passengers side windshield, hydraulic lift drivers & passenger front seat to lift you up through the roof hatches so you can reach the weapons mount, front ram w/ 3 attachments for everything from pushing to pulling the
side out of a building.

This vehicle was built by Federal Motors Corp. in 1985, this company was later sold out to Emergency One who still to this day makes emergency vehicles such as fire trucks & emergency airport vehicles. This APC was built on a 5 ton FWD chassis & is titled as such. From the information that we have received there were only (5) of these ever made. Two of them were shipped to Nicaragua without state department approval, one sank in a lake in Florida during testing (another story in itself), this one was sold to someone in CA & is rumored to have been used in some Hollywood movies although we haven't had the time to verify that & who only know where the other one is.

This would make a great SWAT vehicle for a Law Enforcement Agency, a great piece to add to your military vehicle collection or just a cool toy for the guy that has everything. It is fully road legal in all states.

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.
