What happened to the tank from Indiana Jones & Last Crusade?
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.

Post subject: What happened to the tank from Indiana Jones & Last Crusade?

They've been showing the Indiana Jones series on the USA network, so I thought I'd read up on the tank used in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Apparently they built it out of steel.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...ade#Design

No indication on what happened to it after they finished filming in Spain (they destroyed a model). I wonder if its still there!

Several years ago I saw it on the back lot at Universal Studios in Orlando. Don't know if it is still there.

That looks like the section used for close ups - see the description on the wikipedia page:

"The tank only moved at ten to twelve miles per hour, which Vic Armstrong said made it difficult to film Indiana riding a horse against the tank while making it appear faster. A smaller section of the tank's top made from aluminum and which used rubber tracks was used for close-ups. It was built from a searchlight trailer, weighed eight tons, and was towed by a four-wheel drive truck. It had safety nets on each end to prevent injury to those falling off"
