There is no vin plate for the Replitub, you would need to apply for a VIN/Serial Number through the State (Utah TC-162 Application Form) in order to road register this after you build it. Alternatively, it could be build as an Off-Road vehicle without that process. I would be happy to assist you with that process if needed. I have a poilce VIN inspection for the Jeep stating that no VIN was found on the tub or the frame by the officer”

“$1,850 – Or Best Offer

For a 75-year-old trailer, this one is in pretty excellent shape. This is either a 1946 or 1947 Bantam T3-C 1/4 ton trailer. I’ve owned it for a couple of years now, with the intention to turn it into a overland like trailer.

I have an extra set of rims with military style tires, but all these tires need to be replaced, the rubber is pretty old on these. All the rims are in inner tube style rim as well. The bolt pattern is 5×5.5″ with a hub opening of a hair over 4.75.”

Bantam Trailer Cascade, IA $325

• CATEGORIES: trailer

Allan’s selling this rough trailer. He’s hoping someone can get some use out of it.

“This is a survivor Bantam Willys trailer. The trailer is very rusty and would need major work for restoration. The frame looks to be Ok and the axle, springs, hubs, wheels are all intact. Front tongue jack is intact and workable.The tailgate is intact, but would also need work. There is a bracket on the front of the trailer with a wire spool attached. Not sure what the wire spool attachment may have been used for.

The ID serial tag/plate is intact, but it is weathered to the point that I cannot read it. I have not tried a magnifying glass.”

1945 Converto Airborne Trailer on eBay

Bill shared this Converto trailer located in Portland, Oregon.

View all the information on eBay



“1945 Airborne WWII Converto Dump Trailer
We were in gold country, in central California, hunting for a few things to bring home to the shop when we found this lovely Converto trailer, which is complete down to the last bit, and original. It even has both of the original BF Goodrich military issue tires, which are extremely rare.

The data plates are intact and clear, and the inside of the tub is very straight and clean- No rust or crud piled up- it is ready for sanding and paint-

There are no cuts, dents, or otherwise areas of concern in the tub, gate, and frame. This is a Paint-and-go item. We cleaned out the cement from the tub. If this listing expires without a sale, we may paint it, but the price will be $2500 then.

This is perfect for anyone with a WWII Jeep, wanting to really stand out from the crowd.”

“Converto ½ Ton Airborne Dump Trailer with original data plates. The trailer is in good condition for its age with some rust on the back tailgate, see pictures. Tires are dry rotted and will need to be replaced. Trailer rolls free. Not sure if the taillights work as I have never tried to hook them up. The previous owner put a piece of sheet metal on the floor, unknown why, but it is rust free underneath. The hitch has been changed over to a regular ball type. I do not have the original military hitch that was on the trailer. Included with the trailer is manual, new data plate, and hard to find items, the dump handle and lubrication pouch that mounts on the front. Trailer does not have a title but will come with a Georgia Bill of Sale”
