The tree is growing into the left front sprocket of the Cletrac. Still has some decent parts on it even part of the top bows. No generator.

Steve you are welcome to put any of my pics up on your site. This was a frame stretch job or else I would drag it home for sure. It is a real M3A1. M3A1-48609. Its probably on the way to China or will be shortly. I salvaged some decent bogie hardware from it and a couple of hood pieces. My High Lift jack came in handy. It was a beautiful day for parts picking, sun shine and low 70's.

Grab the Cletrac tracks, several people have called me recently looking for them so there is a market.

Greg,
A friend was there on Wednesday and got some more stuff for me but I didn't think to grab X brace. It did look usable. I'll see if I can get it for you. Someone asked about the fenders but they are really bad. I have a better drivers side than the one on that track that is free if anyone wants it.
Jeff they would not quote a price on the Cletrac for some reason so it must be safe from the torch for the time being. We were joking about how to cut it out of the tree.

Clint,
Thank you for looking into that x brace for me. Also the oil filter is a senior type and the base would be worth having to. The filter canister is probably rusted but the base would still be ok to reuse. Please let me know what you turn up.

Clint,
I got a call from a person out in Colorado that is interested in a bunch of parts off this vehicle. He asked If I could post his information, his name is Willy Taylor and his phone number is 303-434-7204. So if you get a chance can you give him a buzz?
Thanks
-Andy

Andy I tried to get a price on the entire cletrac but they were reluctant to name one not sure why. Your buddy can call the yard their number is here on the website. They are really nice folks. That 8 wheel drive scorpion thing still needs a home. I don't think they pull parts for people but he can ask. I'm going back again but it won't be for a couple of months probably since it is about 180-200 miles for me one way.

Ok, I gotta ask, What is an 8 wheel drive scorpion thing? Is it WWII? Civilian? Do you have a photo? Enquiry minds want to know.

Prototype Gatlin gun carrier V3 or some such. Needs a home. Not armored. More pics on Parramore's website.

I grew up somewhat near this place, and my brother and I used to pester Dad to take us over, which wasn't nearly as often as we'd have liked. Old man parramore used to have two pack howitzers at the office entrance (in pretyt good shape if memory serves), a helicopter sitting outside, two LARCs, at least 2 Stuart tanks (all painted yellow as gunnery targets probably). He had the old RR station as part of his building, FILLED full of all kinds of neat WW2 (and postwar) stuff. He wouldn't sell any really good stuff but the good WW2 apparently sold eventually, so someone came with the right amount. He even had a NASA pressure suit on a dummy in the corner of the office. Over the years I've heard rumors that one of the stuarts was restored, I'd give anything to see it today...
He had halftracks all over the place, most of them remains of logging skiffs with heavy stretched frames and stripped of armor. I never knew there was a Cletrac in there, but as a kid I wouldn't have known one if I saw it.
I was back there for a wedding in May, wanted to go see what was left but couldn't get there.
