I posted a few years ago about a old WWII crawler we have. We"d like to sell it. It hadn"t run for 6 years so I wasn"t sure if it was still able to run. However, one of my farm hands has been tinkering with it and confirmed that it does still start up. It does need to be restored but is operational. I have lots of photos of almost every angle and have posted one below.

I"d like to confirm it is indeed a Clark Airborne before putting it up for sale and also find out what kind of price range I should be asking for it now that I can confirm it runs. I asked on this before and believe that"s what people decided it was, but it"s been a few years like I said and lots has happened in those years, so I"m not remembering everything like I should.
The treads are all good and move. There"s some rust, but I"m assuming that whoever bought it would be into restoring it to the condition they would want it to be in. It"s a regular gas operating crawler. Pretty small as you can see.
A little piece of history for someone.

If anyone has any input on exactly what kind of cat this is, I"d appreciate the info so I can sell it and tell people correctly about what I have here. The plate on the front is difficult to read because sometime in it"s lifetime someone decided this equipment should be yellow instead of green and painted over the tag. It does say it is from the USArmy Airborne division.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It appears to be an Airborne, but some things are odd. No Jerry can holders, no toolbox, grille seems odd to me too, but not sure. If it is a Clark Airborne, there will be big brass tags on the dozer, the crawler, and the engine.
I am thinking what you might have is a US Trac.

The tag attached to the back of the shovel has been painted over, but does say U S Army Airborne on it on the part I can read. I found some restoration photos someone took of another Clark CA-1 and the tag was identical in layout (except you could read theirs). I don't want to mess with too much in case I damage something in cleaning it and using the wrong cleaner or put a scratch where it destroys some information.

Your link didn't go to a Clark Airborne site. More of an multiple airline site. If you have the name of the site, I can find it from there.
