Title: T48 57mm parts wanted
Post by: warbirdrestorer on October 22, 2017, 03:45:17 PM
Hello everyone,
I'm looking for anything T48. I recently purchased the halftrack and would like to make it more complete. I know it is a huge stretch finding anything for this. I was lucky enough to find a rear fuel tank from Brent Mullins thanks to Gary.
Looking for fuel tanks, rear ammo lockers and front gun shield
Thanks for your help.

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun. Can you post a few more pics when you have time. Does anybody know how many restored tank destroyers are in private hands? Good luck with the hunt.

We could post a list of "Gun Motor Carriage" Tank Destroyer survivors.
I am  restoring M3-75-1790

Curious to know what the frame serial number is of the T48 and if it has a data plate.

 So from this photo I have just noticed that some M3-75 shields bolted together! Most photos I have show a welded construction.
 Another twist.

What the lower part of the gun mount looks like where it bolts to the frame.
