This Halftrack was built in July 1943 by the Autocar Motor Company as M3. It was registered by the US Army under Nr. USA 4065552/S and was for sure active in the WW-II.
Currently details of its active military service are unknown however if the vehicle could talk it must be impressive. The original data plate is still there! After the war it was used for some years by a forester company.
This halftrack is a very good and original condition. Armour is with exception of 2 plates 100% original and uncut. Tracks are WW-II. Even the tires are the original Firestone WW-II Combat tires!
Halftrack is sold to the Caramulo musuem in Portugal.
