A unique opportunity to own a real masterpiece of British WW-II Armour (the only running Centaur in the entire world)

Paese: Regno Unito
Periodo: metà XX (2° Guerra Mondiale)
Condizioni: Buone

This 1944 Military Dozer Tank was initially built in 1943 as a A27L (Liberty) Centaur Cruiser Tank by Leyland Motors. However in 1944 the tank was converted to a dozer. Therefore the turret was removed and a dozer blade was fitted operated by a winch. For the rest the original design was untouched.
• All track guards and bins are new,
• Tracks and wheels are in near perfect condition,
• This example still has its unique Liberty engine
• Very unique and only 2 survivors left World Wide!
This is an opportunity to purchase an extremely rare 2nd WW vehicle.

This very rare Centaur Dozer (the only running example worldwide) has been used by the British forces till the end of the WW-II.
After a long post war service, in which it even participated in the Korean War, this Dozer was released by the British forces in the late sixties.
In 1978 it was discovered by a British Collector at the Pounds Scrapyard in Portsmouth. It’s first restoration was finished in the eighties. Due to the fact that the collector was not satisfied with the result he decided to perform a ground up complete restoration during a nearly 15 years’ timeframe. The Dozer was finished in July 2016 and made his first remarkable public appearance at that years’ War and Peace Revival.

Ground up restoration, all track guards, stowage bins and many other sheet metal parts are new, NOS wartime tracks and road wheels in near perfect condition. This example is equipped with the famous original V12 27 litre (1,649 inch3) Liberty engine built by Nuffield. Comes complete with radios and intercom, auxiliary generator, tools and lots of really hard to find accessories.

British WW-II Historic Armour is a good Investment. We are the opinion that genuine WW-II British armour has been underappreciated in relation to the US built examples during a long time.
We are sure that this is rapidly going to change. Reason for this is that British armour is often technical superior, far more rare and from a technical point much more interesting than US built armour.
If you compare for instance the Liberty V12 with the radial engines as installed in a lot of US built tanks this engine is without any doubt superior the American variants. Also the semi epicyclic gearboxes as installed in later British tanks make them highly manoeuvrable. This Dozer is therefore able to make a neutral turn as demonstrated at the War and Peace Revival (See impression above).

Most of all however it is very exciting to own such a homage / tribute and absolutely great fun to drive.
