USMC M67 "Zippo" Vietnam War Tank Instruction plate
This is the refuelling data plate for an M67 tank used by the United States Marine Corps in the Vietnam War.

The M67 was a flamethrower tank and nicknamed the "Zippo". A picture of one in use is shown in the last picture and details on the design and development are shown here:

http://www.wood.army.mil/chmdsd/images/pdfs/Summer%2008/Ringquist-3.pdf

This plaque is made of brass with etched images and text - enamelled in red and dark blue.

The top of the plaque has the drawing of the turret of the tank that shown the two turret crew seats, the large tank for fuel and the position of this plate at the top Right with arrow for Fueling Instructions plate.

Only 109 of these tanks were made and it was the last flamethrower tank made by the US military.

The position of the two crew seats next to a large tank of fuel made them susceptible to explosions.

A very rare item. Very aesthetic with the coloured enamel

We have mounted it on a piece of elm hardwood and will add a slot hangar to the rear to allow it to be wall mounted.

It is 30 cm tall x 20.5 cm wide. The plaque is 11 inches x 7.25 inches.
