Well, if I had $500,000 I wanted to blow, I know what I'd buy! http://www.armyjeeps.net/M4-1103/index.htm
I don't know where they got the description and info for the composite.
www.armyjeeps.netThe M4 was one of the most commonly produced tanks of WWII. However, this one
is rare because it is a composite hull, which means the front is cast and the
rear is welded. As you can see by the pictures. The tank was produced on
6/1942 at the Chrysler factory in Detroit, MI. Many people maintain that since
there is only approximately 10 of these in existence, it is one of the rarest
Sherman’s built, next to the Jumbo Sherman. We do not have production numbers
of this particular tank in that we don’t know that they exist. This M4 has been
completely restored inside and out with all original NOS equipment , it starts
good , runs good and looks great. come take a ride .
only 10 built? Of all the M4 75mm sub variants built that was the second largest block; 1676 built! Only ALCO built more.

Dave Uhrig's site is a good place to find vehicles.
Right now, he has two Sherman's listed.....located in the USA.
(Forget trying to import one, it's virtually impossible. Plus, they
are now selling for the same prices overseas).
The Shermans listed for sale now are priced at $325,000, and
$465,000, respectively. Given the details of the vehicles listed, that
seems to represent market pricing. Hope you've got a BIG Trust Fund behind
