Would originally have had two GM 6/71 s driving into one big gearbox thru a double bellhousing.....Used to see a lot of the bits about as the tanks were generally wrecked for the two motors........when I was  a kid in the fifties,a 6/71 tank motor was worth a 1000 pound.......the price of a  nice house and land in Brisbane.

Proper dogs dinner as quite clearly the vehicle has a three piece Grant front end but the track frames and running gear are clearly M3 Stuart... Not even a good basis for a resto!
