M-3, M3A1 With Guiberson Diesel

Recommended Posts

Working on a story on the Guiberson diesel engine for Diesel World magazine and while it's not primarily about the M-3 application of that engine, I wanted to include an image of the tank. I am looking for an image of a Guiberson-powered M-3 or M-3A1, either a period image or a current one. Might be grasping at straws here, but I do recall that five or so were recovered from Brazil by a British dealer a few years back but I can't find any info on their current whereabouts or condition. Any clues welcome. Images need to be larger than this normally posted on the web due to this being in a print publication.

There is an ex-Brazilian Diesel powered example at Bovington.

Are they Cartridge starting? That was Bovingtons excuse at the time for not running theirs.
