This M36 was bought in 2006 for $75,000 from a private collector in Indiana, with $50,000 coming from Ken Lelacheur, a long-time member of the museum and an M36 driver at the end of World War II. It had previously been used by the former Yugoslav Army until the mid-1990s. (Source: Press reports, see photographs, and 2006 Newsletter).
When it arrived it had distinctive Yugoslav features, such as large headlight clusters, but these have since been removed. It retains a T-55 engine (source: USAHAR) and is in running order. It has worn out tracks and appears to have a small penetration on the left side of the glacis.
