This Sherman is in running order. According to the owner in July 2012: “I purchased this last month and have a long term usage agreement with the Ontario Regiment Museum. It was built in 1945 and is one of 300 purchased by the Canadian Government in 1946 for $1,400 each. They were used from 1946 to about 1972 until fully replaced by Centurions. I drove them while in the reserves with the Ontario Regiment. It runs well but has a steering issue that is currently being sorted out. New tracks and other bits are waiting to go on. This Sherman will enable the Ontario Regiment Museum to field two running M4A2s”. (Source: Duffy/HMVF).
