M10 Achilles Tank Destroyer

Built March 1943 by Fisher body.

My M10 was fully restored in 2011 after underoing a 2-year full nut and bolt restoration carried out by C & C Military Services.

Both Detroit engines have been fully rebuilt by a Detroit engine specialist including new pistons, rings, liners, etc. New four valve heads were fitted (to reduce smoke and increase power) and both radiators were reconditioned. Brand new superchargers and vibration dampers have been fitted as well as both clutch plates have ben re-lined in the last 4 months. Brand new fuel and oil tanks together with a new old stock transmission oil cooler have also been fitted. The suspension has had all new pins and bushes fitted together with new steering brakes. New road wheels have been fitted complete with spoked rear idlers. The M10 will be sold on very good rubber chevron track as per one of the photos and not the rubber block track that it is on at present. The M10 has covered 112 miles to date since restoration and is also road registered.

Both the 17lb main gun and the 50cal machine gun come with deact certificates. The inside of the turret is very complete including four deact sten guns and a full complement of spare magazines etc. All the pioneer tools are present. The driver's compartment is fitted with a brand new old stock dashboard and a number 19 radio set is also present. The turret canvas and muzzle brake canvasses were both bespoke made from originals last year by Allied Forces Canvas. It even has the correct .50 cal gun mount on it - very rare.

The M10 was on the front cover of the January 2012 issue of CMV Magazine and was featured in a 6-page article inside. It will be available for viewing at the War & Peace Revival between Sunday 14th -Saturday 20th July 2013. Please come and have a look if you are seriously interested in purchasing it.

Please note I won't have access to emails whilst at the War & Peace Show so please contact me on my mobile on 07860 173217.

Price is £260,000 ovno.

I would consider a M51 Israeli Super Sherman in part exchange.
