Centurion is 1 of the longest serving & most successful tanks ever.

Very large, noisy & impressive, VERY low mileage & in great working order!

FAQ's:
Yes its in NZ & really for sale
No sorry you can't fire it, the gun is deactivated.
No its not road registered
Yes its huge fun to drive
Yes it fought in a war – Vietnam 1970-71 – see video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_Q19KUq2RQ

I have owed it 11 years & imported it with just 125miles on the clock.

Now showing just 1150 miles it has been very reliable & regularly used, serviced & maintained.

Had a new main engine fitted just 100miles ago - this is a $20K job - done for you!

Surprisingly easy to drive & a total blast!

Comes with comprehensive user manual, technical workshop manual & driving tuition if wanted.

Served with the Australians in the Vietnam War - ARN 169039. NZ also had Cent MBT's.

It is classed as a firearm in NZ - buyer MUST have Cat A license!

Great for promotions & advertising - has serious presence!

Great for the daily commute? Very good at car crushing...
