    My guess will be put in a museum or maybe be bought by some rich guy that would try to restore it. But most likely a museum.

    I think is definately an M5 or M5a1, the stepped up rear deck "hump" for the Cadillac twin V8 is clearly visable , the only other variant built in any great numbers to use the twin V8, was the M8 75mm Howitzer Motor Carriage, but this had a different front hull.

    take care

    If anyone has any other tank, plane, etc. pictures found it weird places( such as under a road) post them here...

    M5, quite plainly.
    Raised rear engine deck, late series suspension volutes.
    Quite possibly it had been used as a kangaroo or command vehicle.
    No real way to identify that without seeing the turret ring though.

    Stuarts are a bit hard to come by, Shermans are plentiful by comparison. Any Stuart that is worth the trouble to restore will be valuable, and sought after. This one has been in the ground a long time, and that coupled with whatever damage it took beforehand will determine its fate. If the(or any) turret can be found, that will help. But it will make a good static display regardless, just needs a bath, and some paint.

    I know of a Stuart M3 A1(?) not far from where I am, about an hour's drive. The vehicle is in running order. The only serious lack, of course, is an ability to fire the main weapon, or have it so as to represent the process of doing so.
    I'd rate the vehicle as 97% intact, in automotive terms.

    I'm surprised that no one has tried to buy it, There are not alot of them extant, as they are smaller, and more easily handled than a Sherman, or other type tank. Among the monied collectors, they are popular. Running examples are less frequently found in the militaries of the world these days, small countries might have some left over machines, and be willing to sell them in order to get something newer, or fatten the budget a bit, but those are few and far between.
    The dug up may end up in the town square, or in some nearby display, even if its missing pieces, and a turret, some paint, and effort, will make it a part of the local history.

    This is from the Admiral Nimitz Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, TX.
    There are a couple of pictures in this thread of an M5 Stuart that actually runs and is used in demonstrations. They (the museum) have actually purchased an M4 Sherman from Israel since these pictures were taken and have it for demonstrations also.

    If it's in the U.S., just bore the barrel out to smooth bore and I think you can make it a shotgun (ATF regs say anything above .500 dia. must be registered if it's a rifle or pistol.)

    37mm would be, what, 2 bore? 1 bore? And if the barrel is choaked, it would make a real good punt gun. Noisy to drive up to the lake, but still a heck of a punt gun.
