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). It has had extensive refurbishments including a new transmission gearbox, a new fuel pump, new welded fuel tanks and new brakes. It is legally registered as an antique truck in the state of Virginia. The breech ring is intact and is registered as an NFA destructive device per the Federal National Firearms Act of 1934. The breech ring is available for separate purchase.

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.

 M-42 DUSTER 40MM TWIN GUN MOTOR CARRIAGE ( UN-RESTORED )

Roughly 3,700 M42's and M42-A1 Dusters were built in the early 50's by the Cadillac Motor Co. They were 10' 8 1/2 Wide . 19 ' Long and weight was 48,000 lbs.
The Duster has quite a history of different combat engagements from early 50's to Vietnam where it was not used as much for Anti Aircraft as it was for an oversize giant Shotgun for Jungle clearing it proved to be very effective. This particular M-42 is very complete , completely original and would make an easy restoration project.

Federal Motors MK44 APC

see more photos at http://www.dndguns.com/apc.htm

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.

Priced: $74,500

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.

A Perkins T6.3544 diesel is mounted to the right of the driver with air induction through armored louvers and Farr air cleaners.

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.
