I really doubt it - the bidding put the combined price for the 4 around 20k - steel is about $45/a ton right now - he'd get about 2500 bucks at the scrapper...

They'll live on somewhere - maybe not all 4 but you could certainly get 3 to live on

Matt, sorry for the delay-had a small construction project on the place that could not wait-.

Here are some pics.

Still thinking about what price to ask but be assured it won't be any where near $20,000 LOL!

Yep - was down there last night looking at the row of 5 they have lined up (they already had two - so I think they win the fleet award for having 6 now) - pretty neat stuff; lots of really cool tracked stuff - not just LVT's... Weasels, Bren Carriers, a HST and some half tracks ;) - my kind guys!

Two will get full resto and possibly a third depending how things go - lots of pretty rare and hard to find parts in those shells - they were super gracious in having me crawl all over and generally shoot the breeze

Exactly how this hobby should be - so rest assured they are in loving hands

More loading pics

She's on her way through Wisconsin today...

Actually went pretty easy as far as loading was concerned - built some timber ramps and just made two winch pulls - one to square up to the trailer and then up she went - steers well and rolls fairly easily for a 30k steel tracked vehicle with 3" tall scoops on the track!

Enjoy

I know of the location of two LVT's. One flipped over and has lots of parts missing. The other is on its tracks but I have not gotten to get a good look at it yet.
