By the way oh yeah, "Also have an M56 Scorpion tank destroyer. This was used in Vietnam by the US Airborne and only 300 were ever made. I have the gun turret for it but not the gun. I have had it running but it needs a fuel tank."

There was a fellow who posted as Dontos who had Scorpions and Scorpion projects.

Yes Hanno, a very rare piece of kit, unofficially assigned to RCE.
The asking was $20k if I recall correctly, the M56 was over $30K.
The scorpion although rare, is not necessarily valuable IMHO.
Without the gun, it would be a hard restoration and have a limited
audience.

Would love to own the M56 but way out of my league.
