We sold a Chieftain for not much more than scrap value a couple of months ago. The price of heavy armour seems to have been particularly hit by the downturn plus they are not that desirable because of the storage and transport requirements. I wouldn't expect to pay much over 11-14K depending on condition. IMHO DYOR etc.

IMHO - I would value a tank and all these surplus trucks etc as scrap metal price+, the + being any kind of utility value they have, labour costs that take them up to usefulness or perhaps rarity they might have. An obsolete tank like a T55 has no intrinsic value and can only be of interest to a collector or hobbyist and given that there must have been shed loads of them made and in storage their value is very close to scrap. And scrap prices are falling faster than bankers from skyscrapers...

I know that one T-55 with 96 km on the clock, recently renewed, in ideal condition is for sale fo 52 000 pounds. I know that five more are for sale, but don't know prices yet.
