Vehicle descriptionX M501 E3 Hawk Missile Tracked Transport Military Vehicle Powered by the 4 cylinder M151 Mutt engine that runs very well. C4 automatic transmission that was recently rebuilt and reconfigured to be a semi automatic (the way the DOD should have done it), it will stay in first and second and run fully automatic when put in 3rd. Top speed is around 35. I"ve been running this track for 4 years and its the most reliable machine I"ve ever had, it never fusses, has never broken down. I"ve only adjusted the steering bands a half turn in 4 years, steers with 1 finger, these tracks were designed to haul and tow tons of weight and was built super heavy duty, only weighs 4,000 lbs, it is a great track. The heavy duty marine batteries were moved up front for weight distribution and enough capacity to run the lights and stereo for days. Warn side winder winch, good stereo, rifle racks for 3, hard wired work light that reaches all the way around, all lights and gauges work but the tach, tracks are good with spare grousers and links, track tool, cooler goes behind the gas tank, no leaks at all, runs for days on 12 gallons of gas. I"ve serviced the track regularly, its always perfectly adjusted and drives easily, the emergency brakes work correctly and its been a joy to own. I can deliver it and give you maintenance & operating instructions and answer any questions you might have, out West for .50 per mile, or it can be picked-up in Auburn, CA. Please excuse the muddy condition, it has been a very wet winter here in CA. Stored indoors year round, completely rust free. Please email with any questions. Sold as-is.
