Text in original Preserved American Tanks publication:

It is believed that this is the only surviving example of a T14E1, the pilot model of the M32A1B3. The US Marines ordered 50 ARVs with HVSS for the anticipated invasion of Japan. To start, in April 1945, 30 new M4A3 (105) HVSS were diverted from the line at Chrysler and sent to Baldwin Locomotive for the conversions. The contract was for T14E1s, not for M32A1B3s; what distinguishes a T14E1 from an M32A1B3 is that they had factory HVSS, not a retrofit. The lifting drum was removed from the right idler and replaced with a boom lifting arm mounted on the glacis. It was once a roadside advertisement for the Imperial Palace Car Museum in Las Vegas. Later it belonged to the Military Vehicle Preservation Group of Spooner, Wisconsin. It was shipped out of the USA via the Port of Baltimore. (Source: J. DeMarco/G104).
This TRV was previously on display at the Marshall Museum at Zwijndrecht. It is currently displayed with a mannequin operating a mortar on the glacis plate. The mortar was intended to be used with smoke shells for providing cover if recovering a tank under possible enemy observation.
