Disneyland Park and Marmon-Herrington tank
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.

Dear Colleagues,
please inform us if you know something about Marmon-Herrington tank. On the internet I came across two pieces of information that talks about this machine.

Both are back in 1959. I've been to Disneyland many times, am familiar where that area is, but have never seen the tank.

The first time I went to Disneyland was in 1980's.

Don

I think this is what is called the Bob Hope tank. It was made for a Bob Hope movie from an experimental CTL-3 Marmon Harrington tank in the 1940's. For the movie the original armor was removed and a sheet metal mock up of a M1 Combat Car was added. It is owned by the American Society of Military History in El Monte, CA.
