The heads appear to be simply turned around, right hand drive hogs head on the one, possibly left hand drive on the other. Looks to have some sort of water pump driven by a shaft to the rear from the front. They have non starter hogs heads, must have been interesting to start, unless that is some sort of starter between the engines up front. Wish I could see it in person, could study that all day! Where is the tank located, looks like a recent picture?

There were two in US Army museums - both moved in the last 10 years. One was in the Patton Museum at Knox and that was moved to Benning. There was also one at Aberdeen that was moved to Lee.

The first photo posted by Ed was taken by me in 2010 at the Patton Museum at Fort Knox, KY.

Twin engine,very interesting. I wonder what the drive train looks like. Any ideas?

I don't know how you guys can like that twin engine tank. Didn't you see the water pump?

Ron, where is Lee?

Is it a town or a base?

James,
Fort Lee, VA. One used to be at Fort Knox when I was in beginning and advanced Officer Training, and I believe that's the one now at Fort Benning, GA.

Tim,
I don't know..... Model T that originally came with waterpumps are worth way more than non-water pump Ts..... :-)

I can't help but notice that Fiddler's Green link in Rob's post lists the engines as 45hp each. Could that be a typo or were they really putting out double the power of a stock Model T?

I don't think the T with the tracks would do very well. The tracks are not very wide. I wouldn't think it would give much flotation which is what would give it its advantage.

I don't know about that Will. A Sherman tank is on the order of 10 pounds per square inch on the tracks. That Model T is probably more like 2.
