    Could be based on that,but hundreds of these things and universal carriers were sold at 5 or 6 pound each and farmers stripped them down and modified them....often dumping the turrets and armament at the back of their field somewhere....a mate of mines grandfather had a Sherman, and ripped it apart and used it as a tractor, he dumped th turret in a dry creek bed in 1947, it's still there

    Edit....just spoke to him and after he died 15 years ago, they sold the hull, and recovered the turret.....it's currently being rebuilt.....

    Would be more useful as spares for restoring another M3-there were fields full of these left abandoned in rural areas after the war here in Australia-some used as pretty inefficient tractors (but better than nothing in post war austerity) or just left there.
