This M60 was previously in the Louisiana Museum of Military History (when it took part in local parades), after which it went into storage at Lafayette Asphalt Co. It was in running order when parked at Lafayette Asphalt, though the hydraulic system for main gun elevation was not working. (Source: Tanklord). This tank has gone through a rebuild as indicated by the later armoured air cleaner units, and also the removal of the M2 .50 calibre stowage bracket from the rear of the turret bustle, an unusual modification (source: J. Daneri).
