    This looks pretty great for that price. I’d be surprised if it doesn’t sell fast. I love the photo with the ship (battleship?) and M60 tank in the background 🙂 … just wish the placcard wasn’t obstructing the view.

    Wonder what happened to cause the ‘seize’. Looks as though it’s been used for re-enacting and appears to be a good looking driver. Did someone forget to check the oil!?

    This doesn’t appear to be a great deal, motor needs rebuilt, transmission needs work…

    If he was willing to deal it might be a okay buy.

    $12k for a non-runner? Seized engine? Busted trans? That’s not a deal at all! That rifle on the side better be nice, and the M1911 pistols in the glove box better be good shooters too.

    OK… so maybe I missed where it said, “engine has seized” AND where Dave noted “engine is seized”… but still this has very significant value: I’m thinking $9K to $10.5 to the right buyer.

    …and not JUST because I’m partial to ’42 GPWs 😉

    That first picture is from Battleship Park in Mobile, AL. It’s the USS Alabama. It’s a great place to get lost in.
