1947 Converto Trailer Hathaway Pines, CA $1200 or eBay

• CATEGORIES: trailer

Here’s a rare civilian Converto.

“This is a ¼ ton utility trailer made in 1947 by the Converto Manufacturing Company. They were sold at the Willys Jeep dealerships and resembled the Bantam military trailers of WW2, but unlike them, this trailer was built with a tailgate. Would also look good with any vintage car or truck. The lights are from the early 50s, but do the job and work with new wires and a flat four connector. The hitch was badly installed and from the 80s, so I installed an NOS, unused old stock hitch that is period correct. I replaced two wheel bearings and repacked them all. The tires are new 8 ply bias. This trailer is permanently registered under a California PTI, and I have a paper title. This trailer is road ready. The bed rusted, but there are no holes and no flake, a previous owner must have blasted it before he painted it. I took photos with it wet to show better contrast. Located in Hathaway Pines, 95233.

Too much?
Look for this trailer on a well known auction site, before Monday evening
Phone calls only, no texts.”

“1945 Willys MB Jeep and matching 1945 Bantam trailer. It runs and starts great and I have driven it over 40 miles at a time with no issues. I have a clean title for the jeep but not for the trailer.

The jeep has a newer overhead 4 cyl (3 speed) and hood has been modified to fit over it. I have another original flat hood that hasn’t been cut if you want to make it stock (with a couple changes to the engine). The rest of the tub is in great shape and it has newer brakes, lines, pads, springs, ect. It also has 2 combat style rims installed but I have 4 additional ones (very hard to find) if you want to paint and install on the jeep and trailer.  Continue reading

Perfect little trailer to haul stuff around the farm. Both are in great working condition but with a little work both could be a nice collectors piece. Bill of sale only on both.”

Converto Trailer Photos

• CATEGORIES: Features, trailer

Dan forwarded these useful photos of a rare Converto Trailer. He writes, Here are some pictures of my converto trailer.  I will send them a few at a time so I am sure you get them.  Feel free to post them and share them. I purchased this in the Tampa Florida area.  It took me a week to figure out what it was.  Notice that there are some brackets where the body meets the a frame in one of the pictures.  It looks like a set up for a dump trailer.  However I’m convinced that this one was never set up to dump.  Also I have the original landing gear that the previous owner removed.  Notice where on the wheel it is stamped patent pending.
