Discussion in 'Military Vehicle Restoration' started by Kai-Petri, Jul 31, 2007.
Wow, the organizers expected 2000 euros minimum a piece, I bet they must be more than happy.
Few more details on the Auction from CMV magazine; seems the Stallwood chap bought all 3 Stug carcasses, so that bodes well for a restoration.
Most expensive Stug (remembering these are very wrecked) went for 185,000 Euros (£130k), lowest price 115,000 euros (£81k).
Top price for a Comet was 25,000 Euros (£17.5k).
For a Charioteer, 16,000 Euros (£11.2k).
How the other half lives eh?
Wonder if the Stugs are in Kevin Wheatcroft's yard already.
Kevin has a LOT of really NICE toys!!!.......
...he a freind of yours, Poop?
No mate, and if he were we'd have fallen out over me stealing bits by now.
He is just down the road from me though, I should hang around his bins in case they accidentally throw out one of the 3 Kettenkrads...
We had a little thread about the collection, few more links on there.
He now claims to have about 80% of a King Tiger, a Jgdpzr IV has turned up in his yard and a Valentine Archer's been imported from the middle east. Got 2 panthers under restoration now as well, first one projected to be finished by maybe June next year if I remember right. And the thought of a restored Terrapin gets me more excited than it probably should.
Need a green with envy smiley.
Phew...what a relief ! I thought Jagdpanther44 might buy one of them just to top me in the 'Show Us Your Militaria' thread.....
Looks like 2 of these Stugs and a Charioteer have turned up in Kevin Wheatcroft's yard (surprise surprise).
Oh yes, he's bought this S-boat too...
(Go to 'News' and 'Hi-res Galleries' for more on the Stugs; Stugg )
Snapped this weekend.
Not one of those sold but a Finnish Stug 40 as recently restored for the Tank Museum by mike Gibb's SdKfz foundation :
Thanx Adam for the pics!
I can also see the logs are still there....
