BOARHOUND IN USA?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

According to The Tank Museum they have the only survivor

"By December 1942 the Desert War was all but over and the British realised that the Boarhound was too large and heavy for use on European country lanes and bridges. Accordingly production was cancelled in May 1943 after 30 cars had been built. These were shipped to the UK during 1943 where they under went various trials before being declared obsolete in January 1944. The Tank Museum’s exhibit is one of the prototype T18E2s and is the sole surviving example."

Looks just right for American Freeways, however. I'll take two.
