 A V8 Stuart      
Back in 1973 while exploring the Warburton area (on pushbike) for interesting artifacts, Tony Wheeler and I came across this interesting modification to a Stuart Tank.
Cut down and used as a bulldozer and log snigger, this former tank was already retired when we found it. By the late 60s a lot of this equipment had already been replaced by the modern generation of specialised loaders and dozers but the scrappies hadn't yet removed their interesting forebears.
At some stage in it's life the original radial had been replaced by this sidevalve V8.
