American M3 Lee.

This vehicle is a running, driving, very complete example of an American M3 Lee medium tank. It was used in the remake of the original Humphrey Bogart movie "Sahara" the modern version stars James Belushi (he has signed the inside of the vehicle).

It is a radial engined tank and was the stop-gap design that was rushed to North Africa to stem Rommel's panzers until such time as the Sherman tank was perfected and put into production. Normally crewed by 6 men (Commander, 37mm Gunner, 37mm Loader, Radio Operator, 75mm Gunner, and 75mm Loader).

The vehicle is for sale, it lives just outside Melbourne and is owned by James Swan, phone 03 5962 5644 : int 61 3 5962 5644
