T48 57mm parts wanted
« 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.

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.
