Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:


This late production Panzer IV/70 has its left-hand superstructure cut away to display its interior. It was acquired from the School of Tank Technology at Chertsey (source: D. Goulty).

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:


This Panzer IV/70 was exchanged for a T-34 and ended up in private hands. It was restored to running condition by Terry Martin in Kent and was shown briefly at the War and Peace Show at Beltring in 1998 before being shipped straight to America. As part of the restoration the hull was patched up where it had been cut away for demonstration purposes at Shrivenham, the exhaust shrouds were replaced and it was repainted in the same pattern camouflage scheme as shown on the Chertsey photos after it was captured. The interior was fairly complete but missing minor fittings. It was a superb restoration and the export of such a unique vehicle was controversial. (Source: T. Lawrence/Missing-Lynx.com).
A question regarding the sale of the vehicle in August 1998 was raised in the British Houses of Parliament in February 1999 but was not answered (source: Hansard). It was part of the Patton Museum collection at Fort Knox in Kentucky, USA, for some years. It took part in at least two Living History displays, including the one in July 2002, but it broke down during one of them.
