Mark B, the owner writes: " This half-track was bought by a farm owner in the 1950's.  It was left untouched except for the local kids who played on it.  At some point the farmer's sons tried to get it running but were unsuccessful.  Mark is now the owner and has repaired it to running condition, but it still needs some more work."

"This particular Half-track is a M9A1 version, rare because it was the least version built.  It is almost all original.  Original uncut armor, gun pulpit, mine racks, doors, even the seats have the original "horse hair" stuffing.  The engine is a Red Diamond  450B w/ an updraft carb. "

Thanks to Mark, this track will live again!

As the project progresses we'll update the sight so stay tuned.
