Rare Military Surplus Find: U.S. Military Tank

A rare find from over 7 decades ago! History buffs and collectors, here’s your chance to own a genuine U.S. Military Tank! The M4 Sherman was the most widely used tank by the United States and some Western allies during WWII. Tank starts, stops and drives without issue. It’s also equipped with all working parts and original accessories — minus working guns. But it’s still great for military re-enactments, driving to work, 4th of July parades, or taking out your annoying neighbor’s mailbox.

    I used to be a mechanic in the army, what every we worked on we had to be able to drive. Drove my share of tanks, M60A2 M60A3, M88 recovery vehicle, as well as trucks of all sizes.
    It would be bad ass to have one

    Good one! An M4 Sherman is my DREAM tank. You really had me going as I scrolled down looking for the details and the price!

    I’d like to pick one of these up but I always require some customer reviews. Without some feedback from other purchasers I’m reluctant to order. Speaking of which, what are the shipping costs and do you ship “next day” priority mail?

    The M4 Sherman pictured is an M4A1, and it has (in this particular picture) the later 76mm gun, not a 75mm.
