That truck needs a rescue. I understand there is only 1 or 2 complete running A12 kicking around. The Cheiftain just did a nice 2 parter for World Of Tanks on YouTube featuring the M26A1 at the museum of American Armor in New York. On my bucket list.Happy Anniversary! """"""" The M26 first saw action on the Italian Front of 1943 """""""
Great history write up over here...... https://sites.rootsweb.com/~mtygf/county/m26.htm
The truck is still there and it's kindled a fire in me loins to look at bustin' her out. She's described as the later M26A1 and not the armoured M26 with around 1270 manufactured.....but we're not exactly sure, if you read the above site.

The fellas and ladies that kept these rolling saved a rare piece of history. Happy 80th!
