First of all do you have a LOT of Money ? We have a M5A1 Stuart Tank plus a 5Ton M931 and a 20 ton trailer to move it ! The tank has 2 engines . drinks Gas ! They are out there but lots of work to keep them running . I think a running tank will start at $300.000.00 up Good lock on your hunt ! Don Shaffer N.E. Ohio

Concur with Don's post. Don't forget what he mentioned about support components (tractor/trailer) and a place to park/store it all. Not to mention qualified operators for all etc. etc. Don't want to discourage anyone, but it's a real deep-pocket thing. Very worth doing if you can afford it.
Hope you're serious, and best of luck.

What is your location, Skhodadadi

What Don, Ed and tankanic,,, said is true.
Also, if you cannot transport a tank by you're own means, it is near or about a $1000 + per day, to just move a Stuart tank by commercial carrier.
Stuarts do not require a oversize load permits, everything else on your shopping list does.
Oversize permits cost $$
Oversize loaded trailers, may require escorts, on public roads / freeways, (Check your local motor vehicle department for requirements.)

Are you looking for:
A restored and running tank
A unrestored tank, that only needs only restoration (has all of it parts)
A unrestored tank, that needs major parts found or needs major parts rebuilt.
A "range wreck" (shot to hell tank), to put on your neighbors lawn, on Halloween.
California sucks, because California's inhabitants do not read / nor understand who or what they are voting for.
