jacks work fine and swivel. Nothing is frozen on this trailer. The tool

condition, winch bumpers are in super shape, louvres are on the
vehicle. Engine is stuck. There is a truck rear axel installed. I have
the complete bogie wheel cast housing and bogie wheels for this vehicle

rear end installed at one time. I have installed the bogie wheel cast
housing and used bogie wheels. Included is a rear assembly and a used
set of tracks. The frame is in good condition and so is the front half
of the vehicle. Low 3-digit serial number, 700-800 (sorry, I forgot to

M-16 A-1 with winch. This half track has a nice winch and good tracks. The right track is better than the left track. It has all nice boogie wheels on it. The former owner said it ran very well, but I have not had the time to try and start it up. It did come with a goofy gas tank that I removed and scrapped. The engine compartment is complete. There are only small, lightly-rusted spots on this vehicle. The rear floor is original and the storage boxes are in good condition. There is only one spot that has rusted through. This is a great vehicle to add repo walls, windshield armor and louvres to in order to make complete. Call for more details, FOB Illinois. I can arrange for loading and truck transportation.
with roller and 90% original armor. This half track has all original
armor, but is missing the windshield armor, the two rear wall corners
and the rear door. I have reproduction items in stock for this vehicle,
which are not included in the price listed. This vehicle has very
little rust on it, and the paint is in good condition. The former owner
started to work on it and pulled out both the radiator and the exhaust
manifold before losing interest. It was not put back together. The two
tracks included in the price are in fair condition at best. Some bogie
wheels need to be replaced. The dash is stripped and it is in very good
condition. The flooring is very solid. There are not many vehicles with
this much armor available anymore. The price is right, and so is the
overall condition of this half track. Call if you would like more
details. FOB Illinois. I can arrange shipping and load this vehicle on
a flat bed trailer at my cost with a local towing company.
with roller and track fenders. The
engine runs and has a rod
knock, according to the previous owner. This is a very complete
halftrack. It still has the original lower doors, louvres, side battery
armor, canvas top strip and armor behind the strip and a nice-looking
roller. The right cab flooring is rusted out. The tracks are nothing
special, but do not look as if they are about to break. There is a NOS
exhaust system installed, a rebuilt carburetor, and what looks like a
very nice used or NOS air filter. The radiator holds coolant. The
previous owner took the oil pan off to clean it out because it had sat
for a long time. Unfortunately, he wasn't aware he had a bad rod
bearing. The knock isn't very bad, so a new set of rod bearings might
be all that is needed. Since the track fenders are there, you can add
side armor to finish up the rear box. The rear body section is in very
nice condition and the fenders are in very good condition. This is a
great vehicle to restore.
SOLDM-818 tractor with winch, cable tensioner and level wind. 8255 miles/316 hours on the vehicle. Stored indoors. Includes NOS hot water heater and a hard cab top, with new carc paint.

SOLDM-172A1 25-ton military trailer. This trailer went through a depot rebuild, including a new brake job, new carc paint and new tires. The two-speed right landing leg was rebuilt, and all-new gears and bearings were installed. Two larger landing leg pads were installed, as well as two new taillights. The 2" thick oak decking is in great shape, with no rot or holes. The wood was water sealed. This trailer also includes two new spare tires, two new factory-built 10,000 lb aluminum ramps, and a fold-down step mounted on the left-front corner. There is nothing to do with this trailer except to use it!
M3 White half track. Junk motor good straight frame and drive train. Has most of the rear floor and track armor. No tracks.
M2A1 half track. This half
track came from California. It has only surface rust on it. It came
from a customer that bought it directly from the government in '46. The
rear body is long-gone; it has been sitting for years. Engine condition
is unknown. He said they didn't use this one very much, and it looks
like it. The fenders are in very nice condition, it has a winch and the
winch bumper is straight. There is NO CABLE on the drum. I received it
in the late winter, so the pictures show a light salty mist on it from
the highway. Rain has since washed this off. This is a really nice
vehicle to start a serious restoration.
M-818 tractor. You can use a
5th wheel or a Pintle hook trailer on this truck. Only 17,000 miles,
former National Guard vehicle in Tennessee. This vehicle went through a
rebuild and looks like it was never used after that. EVERYTHING works
including lights and brakes. There are no oil leaks, and it has new
batteries and Michelin Radial tires that are in very good condition.
Has a hard cab and good glass all around. The wiring is all new. This
vehicle is perfect to transport your half track! It is old enough to
qualify as an antique vehicle. In Illinois, my license plates are only
$5.00/year. You cannot find a better and cheaper vehicle to move an
armored vehicle around than this one. A Form 97 has been submitted to
the government for a civilian title which will come with this vehicle
when I receive it at no additional charge. This vehicle can only be
sold to a US citizen, and cannot be exported out of the US. Please feel
free to call with any questions you may have.

I have an M4 stripped frame to go with this vehicle, so that you can restore each part and transfer the parts to the M4 frame. Cut the old frame up when you are finished. Bogie wheels on the vehicle are also OK.
M-2 half track with a perfect and very rare skate rail and roller. This is a complete armored vehicle - there is no reproduction armor on this vehicle! This vehicle was started as a professional, ground-up restoration by a knowledgeable, long-time half tracks man. All the parts were sandblasted, primed and painted. It has a rebuilt engine, transmission, and drive train. There are new bogie clusters and tracks on this vehicle. The drive train, engine and most of the armor has been assembled. There are new gauges and a voltmeter in the dash. Approximately 70-75% has been finished. This half track even comes with a license!
Canvas top is included; the stairs are as well, but were not installed when the pictures were taken. This is the perfect half track for a collector that wants a very rare and original armored half track for his collection. This was a full-blown, frame-up restoration at the time. Health problems from the past caused this restoration to never be completed.
M-4, 81-MM mortar half track. Very rare model. Comes with a complete 81-MM mortar base and rear body floor. The body is in very nice condition. The chain boxes under the floor are solid. The frame is solid and straight, and it has the original front roller. I have all the necessary parts to restore this vehicle in stock.

M2A1 Half Track with Winch and the original rear floor and track armor. It also has the rear steps. The storage compartments are solid. There is a radio connection box on the drivers side. Tracks are old, but good. This vehicle was pulled a couple of miles to a loading ramp after sitting for 30 years under a roof, and they didn't break during the trip. They should be good for more use. There are two combat wheels with COMBAT TIRES mounted to the wheels. These tires are normally in poor condition. This set is amazingly in great condition. Just think - NO FLAT TIRES!
has a full drum of cable and chain. The cab flooring is very solid and
two nice seats are in the cab. The instrument cluster is a little faded
but still in very nice condition. On the right side bogie cluster there
are two bad bogie wheels. The seller informed me that his Grandpa had
something to repair on the motor and never finished it after he pulled
the head and oil pan. The head was laid back on the block by myself
just to get it off the floor. Though I do not know the condition of the
engine, I do have a couple of good running used engines available. I
can supply all the missing rear body armor and doors. This is a
very nice and clean Half Track with very minimal rust.
Vehicles like this are becoming very hard to find anymore.
I have a good shipping company to transport it to your location.
This is a Model M2A1 halftrack, converted from an M-2 halftrack, Diamond T or Autocar. The motor is a rebuilt Israeli model, and comes with NOS 1980 tracks. This is one very rare halftrack that has all original armor still on it, including the pulpit. The rear of the half track has M-4 rear corner walls and door, and the rear steps are incorrect. This section has been left alone for now. If the new owner wants the one-piece rear wall and steps, we can reproduce this section and replace the rear door set-up.
The vehicle has had only one owner since the early '80s, and is a very nice parade-quality vehicle. There are some minor repairs needed, however.
This vehicle comes as pictured. The .30 caliber and .50 caliber guns are NON-FUNCTIONAL REPLICAS! They were, however, made from original parts and look very nice. Seat back and all seat cushions are nice. A NOS radio is included, as well as demilitarized land mines.
If you are looking for a
complete halftrack and do not want to search for parts for many years
to come, this is the vehicle for you.
M16A1 white half track with roller. This is a complete original armor half track. It is missing only the windshield armor, doors and rear door lock. I can supply reproduced parts for this vehicle. The vehicle has the 50's intercom system, which is still installed in the vehicle. The engine compartment is complete, but the engine is stuck from sitting for a long time in a barn. This was a running and driving half track until the previous owner's health failed. It has become very hard to find a complete "as is" half track anymore. This is a great vehicle to restore. It could be converted over to a personal carrier. I can supply parts for the entire rear body to convert it over should the new owner decide to build an M3 or M3A1 model. Check out the M3/M3A1 rear body section on this site for pictures from start to finish.
