T-16 Universal CarriersAsking$22,000

These 3 T-16 Carriers have been stored for 25 years in a warehouse in Argentina. They are in excellent non-running condition, but are complete with their original engines and transmissions, instrument panels, engine covers (usually missing ), tracks and boogies in excellent condition, controls , seats, etc.

The three carriers are in similar condition. These vehicles still have all the hoses, belts and spark plugs in place so they would only need mechanical adjustments to run again. All the original parts are present including their spare wheels, radiator, gasoline tanks etc.   Just some little parts are missing like the front lights.

These vehicles are still considered a military weapon in Argentina so an Import Permit or “End User Certificate” would be necessary for export.

Background

The T-16 is a version of the Universal Carrier, a common name describing a family of light armored tracked vehicles built by Vickers-Armstrong. The Carrier, Universal, T16, Mark I was a significantly improved vehicle based upon those built by Ford of Canada, manufactured under Lend Lease by Ford in the United States from March 1943 to 1945. It was chiefly used by Canadian forces during the war as an artillery tractor. After the war, it was used by Swiss and Netherlands forces. It was longer than the Universal with an extra road wheel on the rear bogie, the engine was a Ford Mercury delivering the same power. Instead of the steering wheel controlling the combination brake/warp mechanism, the T-16 had track-brake steering operated by levers (two for each side).
