VERY RARE WWII ARMOR
We can Sell and Ship World-Wide – We are a Licensed US Exporter of Military Equipment

Buyer Responsible for All Export and Shipping Costs
Numerous References Availablein US, Hungary, France, Netherlands, UK, Belgium, & Switzerland.
For Serious Buyers – a visit is highly encouraged, it’s located in central MA 45 minutes west of Boston.
Numerous Videos – Pictures at www.ww2mv.com There are only about 7 known M18 Hellcats in the United States and only 2,500 were ever built.
For any serious collector the M18 is the absolute pinnacle of  WWII Armor.
The Hellcat can travel up to 55mph and could take out all but the heaviest of German Tanks with it’s 76mm Main Gun.

Hellcats are RARELY offered for public sale – don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to own your own piece of history.
When the economy bounces back prices are sure to rise, Shermans have sold recently for the mid $400’s – they made over 50,000 Shermans but only 2500 hellcats were made.

The Hellcat truly is the Porsche of US Armor, it drives and handles like no other tank.
I also own a M24 Chaffee, which is a fantastic tank to drive, and the hellcat puts it to shame.
We have raced the Chaffee and the Hellcat and it was no contest, the M18 is MUCH faster. It also blows away Shermans, Stuarts, you name it!

This Hellcat is hull no 1550 and was perfectly restored in 2008-2009 at Milspec in NJ after being brought in the country from Bosnia.
This tank saw action in Bosnia and has the battle scars to prove it, some of which were left during restoration for historical purposes. .

Everything on the tank is functional, the gun is not live, the tube had holes put in it during the war in Bosnia.
The paint has some blemishes from being used in parades over the last few years, normal scratches  but that’s about it.
The engine runs perfectly, absolutely no issues with the Continental R-975 C1 motor. We rebuilt the motor when I received the tank from Milspec in 2009.

Why am I selling this beautiful vehicle? I currently own 2 M18’s and both are for sale as I need the capital for other commitments.
I have enjoyed owning and driving both vehicles but am ready to move on. If I hit the lottery they will no longer be for sale 😉

 On March 18 2012 this tank was in the South Boston St Patrick’s day parade and was running for over 5 hours without a hiccup.
The oil pressure remained perfect throughout the engine temp never went above 150 on a 75 degree day. That is a very long day for a WWII TD and it was absolutely no problem for this M18.

 
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!

The Hellcat is located in Central MA, about 45 minutes west of Boston.We also have a second M18 Hellcat for sale that was restored this past year and has the more powerful R-975 C4 Motor.
