P-51 P-47 Fighter Plane Belly Drop Tank

Post by MATT » Sat Apr 21, 2018 10:36 pm

Hi guys, I have a WWII fighter plane belly drop tank. I have absolutely NO IDEA of value. I was at an air show and someone said he thought it was worth $2500 but that sounds high to me. I am asking $1500. It is 7' 6" long and 2' 6" wide. It is hanging in my garage and I know the photos are bad so if someone is serious I can take it down and take better photos. Perfect for display or make that hot rod you always wanted.....

I still have the belly tank. It would make a great side car or build a hot rod. New photos for the tank. Asking $1200 obo

If it had not been cut, $1500-$2500 would be possible. Restored P-51's average $2,000,000-$4,000,000 on the market.

Ya that is why I am asking what I am. Hot Rod guys love these as they can make belly tank salt flat race cars out of them. That is probably what happened to this one. Could be a cool go-cart for your kids/grandkids............
