If a B-17 Top Turret is something you've always wanted...


Recommended Posts

This would be so cool to have as a yard decoration! It's being auctioned off on eBay. Not many of these floating around. :o:)

 

 

Rare
B-17 Gun Turret on eBay


We've
heard of a lot of interesting items for sale on eBay, but this one's a first: a
piece of a WW II B-17, in its original paint! If you've got the space for it,
what a great conversation piece this would make! With a reserve set at $6,100,
the auction is ending Sunday. The turret is being sold by Stockton (Calif.)
Field Aviation Museum and Vintage Aircraft are offering a B-17 gun turret on
eBay and part of the proceeds will go toward the restoration of the museum's
flying 1945 Lockheed PV-2D Harpoon

Actually they offered it to almost all the B17 owners, and restorers, including couple here in Florida. Its also being offered on a Warplane site. They thought it would be cool to put it on E-Bay and see what reponse they would get. They have been amazed at the interest.

Oh its cool, and one of the few that's operational. Most are static. Would I like one, you bet. B;ueJeans says to cut a hole in roof of my Jeep and install it.

As to E-Bay, when I'm bored and not on a Military site, or someone says to check something out, you would be surprised at the stuff, instruments, etc. touted as coming from a B17, about 75% came from other crafts.

I've got everything for a cockpit project, if I ever get the time. Even 2 seats, trottle, and 2 yokes. Just need to, or get Bob to build the instrument panel for my instruments. MT
