Original an M4A3-105 converted into an M74 after WW2
The unit was used as an Hard Target training object, but still survived. A start of a big restoration job either as a M74 or back to original configuration as a M4A3 105mm Sherman tank. This M74 was used in the late fifties by the US Forces in Germany. After its operational service it was put on a Hard Target traning area. Almost the complete drive line, engine (Ford GAA) , steering is still in but needs some Tender Love and Care.
