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.

SUPER RARE 60's VINTAGE LAND ROVER
PIGLET MILITARY ARMORED CAR
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.

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.
Undergone a total frame off restoration. All parts were either replaced with NOS or rebuilt originals. Nothing left undone. Four brand new tires all around. Ten miles on odometer since restoration. All armor and skate rail uncut and original. Includes one skate trolley. This scout car was a European bring back and has never been altered from its original military configuration.

The M18 Hellcat was built by Buick in 1944. We have reason to believe this unit actually saw combat in the Battle of the Bulge and after. This is the Ferrari of the US WWII tanks and is still the fastest US production tank ever built. We have 2 Hellcat’s and this is the nicest one of the two, and literally the best of the lot that came over from Europe. This one was handpicked. We are working on finishing the C4 Engine, muffler system, a few hoses and the dash. It will be in mint condition. If someone would like it battle ready, that can be done. A lot of extra’s will be included in the sale anyway.
