Throughout his life, Jacques Littlefield, a Silicon Valley engineer, collected high-value military vehicles and equipment used from World War I to the Gulf War, according to Auctions America, which is handling the sale.
When he passed, the vehicles were given to the Massachusetts-based Collings Foundation.
Now, much of Littlefield’s collection, which is billed as one of the largest ever, [was] up for sale at the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation in Portola Valley.
Some of the pricier items include the German Panzer IV, a tank likely built in 1944 and expected to be sold for more than $2 million. Or, you could snag a Soviet-made vehicle, equipped with a 203mm cannon and estimated to go for up to $170,000.
Just happened this last weekend, so if you were in the market for a tank, sorry, you’re out of luck unless you can find an aftermarket seller.
