My wife said I could get it. Now all I have to do is win the lottery tomorrow, so I'll have the money.

$70K seems low considering the condition of the tank.

[BRSKT] may or may not be recruiting you.

Supply and demand. Yes the supply would be low but the demand even lower. You would have to be a millionaire with a hard on for tanks. : )

Yes, an extravagant purchase for a personal collection. Even then it is roughly equal to a decked out out Escalade or similar vehicle. 

 

This is a tank in stunning condition. Not the name recognition of a Sherman, but uber cool.

 

A museum or one of the "drive a tank" places should be all over this.

My neighbor had an M4 sitting out behind his house for a few weeks. I think he does restorations. The tank was pretty rusty.

If you believe the write-up, I’m counting four owners including the government of Portugal.

 

Block Quote

 This 1944 M5A1 Stuart is an American-made light tank that was reportedly shipped to Europe late in the Second World War. It was then sold to Portugal, where it was retained in their light tank inventory through the late 1960s. Power is provided by a pair of Cadillac flathead V8s that send power to the tracks via a pair 4-speed Hydramatic automatic transmissions and a transfer case. The main armament is a 37mm cannon, which has been retained in demilled condition along with the three machine guns. The tank was returned to the US by the Southeastern Equipment Company (SECO) in the 1980s, and has not been used as a monument tank. The tank was in a private collection through 2016 with one owner. The current owner added it to his collection 2016 and performed a general service shortly after his acquisition, including changing the fluids. This running and driving Stuart is located in Los Angeles, California, and it is now being offered on behalf of the current owner on a bill of sale.

Latest bid is $220,000 and auction ends in 3 hours.

 

Would be cool if a WoTBlitzer ended up owning it.
