No idea on the tank value. Put a reserve on it and toss it on ebay and see what happens. I'm more interested in the garden statue in the background. Is that a Hispanic gentleman with a poncho and sombrero pulling a burro? If so, wow! Those are almost as rare as yard jockey statues.

I am quite shocked sombody didnt have an answer for you on here. Those kinda tanks used to fetch about 2K a few years ago, but the whole warbird market is in the biggest slump in history and prices are falling faster than a Zero, especially the most expensive ones like P-51 and F4U?
yeah, i don't know whats going on. not much interest. who wouldn't want this awesome piece of history!? Don't you want it?

It would be cool to have something like that but not sure whats its worth

The problem is the nose is punched in and in order to repair it you'll have to cut the tank open to make the repair then re-weld, a bunch of work! Next, whats the condition of the rest of the tank, dents, corrosion, etc.

I would like to have it the way it is now but if it would look nice restored but it would be a project but it would be fun

If you want to fix the dent without cutting it apart, you could always do what the autobody guys do. Strip some paint, use a stud gun to weld on some studs, attach a slide hammer, and pull the dent out. Much less work than halving it.
Of course, i`m not an expert, so i could be way wrong. Just food for thought.
