Default C15TA Register?

Good Evening,

I am trying to find out how many C15TA's there are left around the world, so if you have one or know of one in a museum or privately owned can you list it here.

Many thanks in advance
James

Hi Mike,
the plate is from Dirk L. (LWD parts) Not sure if he has more, you need to ask him.

Does the list include Andre in Quebec's example? I haven't seen him in two or three years, so I don't know his progress.

Hi Terry
I haven't been to see Andre's truck for a year but it is my understanding that it's done. Hopefully he will be at the OMVA show in March and I can get some updated photos to post. Andre doesn't do email much, he is too busy with his restorations.
Cheers,
Barry

Hi Guys
Andre's truck is finished, amazing job if I might add. I spoke to him just before Christmas and as far as I know he will be down next month. I'll be speaking with him soon so if that changes I will post it.

James,

The first ex-Greek Army survivor belongs now to a private collection, waiting restoration... (for how long? )

The second survivor belongs to the Tank Museum of the Greek Army's Tank Training Center, located north of Athens. Sits under the trees in open weather and in poor condition..
I'm ashamed for that and I can't show you more photos

I am helping our very famous surviving panzers creator with the C15TA and armored command vehicles, can everyone check the list and see if there are any other vehicles we are missing or have on updates..

Please see the link and let me know of any additions or subtractions.

http://the.shadock.free.fr/Surviving...d_Vehicles.doc

Mine has not been updated yet.

Only pictures missing from the current URL http://www.mapleleafup.nl/cmpvehicles/c15ta_reg.html are the ones that linked to the old mapleleafup.org domain (which also moved) and can now be found on http://www.mapleleafup.net/vehicles/...our/c15ta.html.

As for a missing picture of Leegwater's C15TA, ask Barry Churcher, he owns it now.

Other entries have a caption [picture currently not available], will see if I can get pictures.

HTH,

In 2009 it was spotted in the "Central Museum of the Second World War, Poklonnaya Gora, Moscow", apparently owned by the Lehn collection. They had it for sale on their website lehn.ru in 2009.

Default Cz1784360

Here's one of which I do not know the current owner/ location.

Note that it once had the registration number "F587578" and when restored it had number CZ1784360. Note that it has a chassis winch which was not a factory fitment.

It isn't listed in Rafał Białęcki's listing of survivors AFAIK: http://the.shadock.free.fr/Surviving...d_Vehicles.pdf

Default Cz4287885

C15TA CZ4287885, a.k.a. GSU 623 was restored by Geoff Maskell in the UK, sold to Mr de Vrij in the Netherlands in 2001, who sold it to a collector in Luxemburg, who offered it (together with an Otter) for sale in 2016.

A Dutch collector bought both of them. The photo below shows both vehicles at an event in 2018, I think this was the only time he took them out.

Meanwhile this C15TA and the Otter were sold on, where are they now?
