Restoration project availabe: Barn find; 100% original, untouched and very low operational hours (only 22!)
Recently BAIV discovered a unique very nice original and untouched 1944 US M4 High speed tractor.
It requires a full restoration (currently not driving) but it is a very good base and almost 100% complete. Original, very low mileage, straight from the factory, untouched;
This is the type of treasures a serious collector is looking for!!!
This might be a great addition to your collection!
The M4 is based on the M3 light tank and was manufactured by Allis-Chalmers in Milwaukee Wisconsin USA. The original engine, which need to be overhauled completely, has only 22 hours on it so it was almost as new when it was left for storage. Same for the gear box, suspension, tracks etc.
The M4 Highspeed tractor is without any doubt the best model in the high speed series. Moreover it is a very elegant model, easy to operate and loved by its crews.
The fact that this unit is, since it was delivered from Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Co., almost untouched makes it very desirable and a unique collector piece.
