      There is also an M3 Lee at Newark Delaware. In fact it is the first
      Chrysler built M3 ( The one in the publicity photos. It has been at the
      American Legion (or VFW, I get confused) for years.

      I 'found' it back about 5-6 years ago and Joe ran up there and got some
      details. That was back when I was a 'young troop' on this list. It's
      probably all in the archives. I haven't check on it in a few years but
      know a couple other folks who have.

      There are a couple Lee/Grants at Aberdeen a Cast hull M3A1 at the parade
      ground and the 'Grant' at the Museum field. That is just a cosmetic Grant
      where they put a Grant turret on a Lee hull they had.

          Hi, Neil,

          I think the plan is to sell the hull and parts to another collector
          who had expressed some interest. We were just glad to get a cupola for
          the running M3, which you probably remember had the original split
          hatches as it was received from England and the Budge collection. It was
          a former Austrailian vehicle.

          The parts out back would be a MAJOR restoration job. Right now the
          focus is on the M10 and the M1917. Marc encouraged me to spend EVERY
          free moment helping him on the M1917! Wish I had the time!

            Also good to hear the M1917 is being worked on, I noticed it had been
