Harry's Thoughts

I do not condone violence nor am I in the business or arms dealing. This "multipurpose" vehicle will make a nice addition to anyone's collection of military Paraphernalia.

ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com.  

Free To Bid. Inspection reports available. See full photos, videos and more. Auction Dates: Oct 11-20, 2020

2020 has proven to be an unpredictable time to say the least. With so much economic and political uncertainty, the best thing any American can do right now is be prepared. So you’ve already got 10,000+ rounds of ammunition, enough rations to last 4 years, and you’ve converted half of your cash into gold and silver and it’s now buried in a safe somewhere in your backyard… what’s next?

The answer is a tank. This Tank.

Exercise your right to bear arms! Keep anarchists, home invaders, and those who don’t share you political ideologies off your property with this excellent first line of defense. This 1960 Ferret Scout Tank MkII-4 is also highly maneuverable, perfect for quick trips across a barren wasteland to ransack whatever is left of your local supermarket.  There is being prepared. And then there is being prepared.

Seriously, this is a real, operable tank believed to have been originally commissioned by the Malta Military. This is the MKII-4 model, which features slightly heavier armor plating over standard models. To answer the question we know you’re all thinking, no, the Browning M1919 machine gun is real but is for show only, having had the side plate removed. Though what you do with this tank once you buy it is completely up to you!

This Ferret does not have a title or export permits. But who’s going to try to pull you over in this? It has a maximum speed of 45 mph, a 21 gallon fuel tank, a 24 volt electrical system, and cool matching helmets for you and your crew.

We do know that this tank underwent a thorough restoration by John Bizal in Prior Lake, MN.  This Ferret was inspected and the report is available for your review. It will not disappoint.  This is being sold on a bill of sale only, without a title.

It’s better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. Think about that as you ask yourself, how prepared are you really?

For more information and details, please call, text or email Daniel Folk at +1.917.890.4230 or daniel@classicpromenade.com.  The Scout is able to be viewed in New Mexico.

Hi caribbeanjoe. The Ferret is 6ft 2inches tall. That is with the hatch closed. When opened, it is probably another foot or so.

The Ferret Scout Tank, also known as the Ferret Armored Car, is a British armored vehicle designed and built solely for reconnaissance missions. Produced between the years 1952 and 1971 by Daimier, who was based out of the United Kingdom. Widely accepted by many regiments across the nation, the Ferret scout car is known for its historical importance. With only 4,409 units produced, this tank is a rare piece of history. A steel plate 6-16 mm thick protecting the crew from any hazardous material or shell splinters. A feature found on nearly all subsequent marks & models is the implementation of sisx forward-firing grenade launchers placed upon the hull above the front set of wheels. These grenades were normally carrying smoke, but the Ferret usually carried a .303” Bren light machine gun or a pintle-mounted .30” Browning light machine gun for protective purposes. Interestingly enough, the steering wheel is inverted at a 45 degree angle away from the driver. Experienced drivers of armored vehicles will find this as a usual feature, but may be unusual to others.
