2140 - TANKS BEING BUILT AT CARRIAGE WORKS reduced

Battlefind Restorations specializes in restoring World War Two and World War One military vehicles and military aircraft for private use and museum display, and offers professional global logistics services, through our preferred carriers. We have loaded a nice collection of our photos, for your enjoyment.

Battlefind.com was enthusiastically formed in an effort to preserve as many rare machines and survivors of past conflicts, and have restored over 50 machines in past years, with many being housed in museums and private collections around the world.

We have restored WWII Allied machines as well as Axis, including many extremely scarce German War Bikes, US armored and tracked vehicles, and WWI movie replica aircraft.

Proudly, we have gathered up some WWI replica aircraft that were used in the film industry in the late 60’s and early 1970’s, portraying the life and events in WWI squadrons in Europe..

Here is one of our Se5a British Fighter aircraft, displayed in Portland Oregon in 2012 for the Memorial Day gathering in Waterfront Park

We have also been known to build the occasional hotrod as well, but the old farm tractors are beginning to call to me. This one was a real gem.

Battlefind.com also provide a professional locator service, enabling you to extend your searches worldwide. We will find you as many examples of the vehicle that you are interested in as possible, within your stated price range, and also handle the full logistics all the way to your door; Of course, if you would like a full restoration, we would be happy to provide that as well.

When time and funds allow, we like to attend European Military Vehicle gatherings, such as Beltring, Normandy, Bastogne, and of course, the mighty Tanks in Town, where up to 80 pieces of WWII armour rolls into Mons Belgium, re-tracing the steps of General George Patton’s Spearhead, led by the 3rd armored division.  The convoy is led by the actual first tank that was to roll into Mons in 1944- “Fish and Chips” Stuart light tank- found in a marsh and fully restored to operational condition.  It is a spectacular event. Here are a few photos to give you an idea. This is also where all of our header images come from. The first and second photos are of the star of the show; “Fish and Chips”

A reminder that we are indeed in Belgium. Take a look at the majority of hands-Beer. Locals brought us buckets of it every time we stopped, just like in WWII
