I know this is may seem like a fairly wierd thing to buy, but i want to start looking for a M113 for sale, it can be in fairly poor condition, i just need it to have a solid hull, and good tracks, i'm looking for a fixer upper. If i can't find one of these i'd be interested in a Half track with good condition tracks.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I can't point you any where, but what ever you do, do not put spinners on it.

Naw, Seen an old M-59 APC for sale on the net once but no M-113's I think the U.S. military was too busy giving the old ones to foreign countries, like Israel.

thanks for the help, keep it coming if you find anything else, i'm open to some pretty beat up stuff, i'm willing to spend quite a bit of time restoring it. I really want a tracked vehicle to run around the property with, especially something with the capacity to hold extra people.

Chrome the roadwheels and find some way to put those LED tire valve covers on the grease fittings. That would be mad tighte yo! And don't forget the dual exhaust tip, and a three tier wing.

But for 29k those had better be functional weapons on there.

That would be too f'ing cool tooling around in the FAV. I would have to buy a .50 semi or fake Tow just to accesorize it.
