Blaine spotted this Bantam trailer at a good price.
“A really cool, rare & historic T3-C Bantam military trailer from the 1940’s. Has just the right amount of ‘patina’ with original ‘combat wheels’ & fenders. They are only original once! Bed is in good shape; has a tailgate, stake pockets, a 2″ hitch receiver, swing down ‘tongue stand’ and a 4 flat electric plug for the tail lights. These military trailers are getting harder and harder to find in this nice of condition. $950 cash – firm.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $8900.

Nice combo. Silver City is somewhat remote.
“For sale is a 1942 Willys MB 4 cylinder Jeep and a military Jeep trailer. Jeep is located in Silver City, ID and has been for about 50 years.”
This combo might be a good price.

I’m sure someone out there is proud of this trailer, but honestly, if I brought that home to Ann, I’d be sleeping in it alone …. with all my belongings. Of course, there’s that old saying: there’s a trailer for every traveler. Okay, I just made that up.
“57 Willys Jeep that is completely original! low miles! runs and drives but need carburetor work.
will come with a 1961 homemade teardrop trailer. 5000 for both”
Joe spotted this one. Runs, but needs some work.
“1948 Willys Jeep! The perfect project. 2nd owner-
I had to have this. My husband bought it for me. No time to take it on and we see the project differently. I love all of the blemishes! He wants a show piece. all ORIGINAL motor, body, frame etc. welded in roll bar.
I runs but needs a fuel pump. It slips out of 2nd gear…
New tires on trailer
Please- no low ball offers – would consider trade/cash for pool”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5900
(03/19/2016) “Very solid and original old Jeep. Fully functioning headlamps, tail lights, brake lights, turn signals, 4 way flashers, horn, heater with original defroster attachment, original vacuum operated wipers, newer Best soft top with full soft doors, new fuel tank and a new fuel pump. Everything works. Was repainted (spray cans) several years ago. Was originally machine gray with orange wheels. Runs and drives very good. Leaks like an old Willys. Jeep would be an easy restore or enjoy as is.”
The jeep has some good jeeping updates. Has rear floaters with hubs.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2200.
“Completely RESTORED 1967 Steven’s M416. The good…everything has been gone through. All the bolts have been replaced with grade 8 bolts. This trailer does not have a cut tailgate as I have seen others. An Original lunette alone is worth $475 easy. Just check around. The lunette IS included. Just look at the pictures! It does have a fiberglass Tonneau cover on it painted to match the color on the trailer. The bad…the tires are not new but they hold air but I don’t trust them on the freeway but that’s just me. It does come with a spare and two brand new tire inner tubes that ran me $45 PLUS the M416 NOS manual. The bearings are new and they have been installed professionally but that was 3.5 years ago and since then the trailer has been kept in an inside storage and not in use. I would strongly suggest the bearings be redone.”
The rims are worth more than the trailer.
“This is a Bantam civilian trailer frame with military combat rims (WILLYS MB FORD GPW). The metal plate is bolted on the frame and can be removed. Correct original drawbar, landing leg, hithc. etc. $300.00”
Bill forwarded this custom Willys trailer. Looks good for the price.

UPDATE: Price dropped to $8500.

“1952, M38A1 military jeep and trailer RESTORED. Many additional parts for you to install.
All new canvas except doors.
You also get military trailer restored with new canvas Engine rebuilt and new clutch”
Motor is stuck. Seller is also selling the trailer for $400.
“Motor is stuck from sitting. Transmission and transfer case are not stuck. Body is solid but has lots of patches and some bondo.
This would be a good project with a motor swap. Sold with bill of sale only but can register and convey with current registration at buyer’s expense (Generally less than $100 including the insurance required to do so).”
Tim spotted another trailer.
“MILITARY TRAILER ITS IN GOOD SHAPE NEEDS A LITTLE WORK
Rodney’s selling this trailer. Looks like it has potential.
“Selling a civilian Bantam T3-C trailer. The trailer is usable as-is or can be restored close to original. The paint has peeled and trailer has lots of surface rust. Some heavily rusted areas might need patching. Overall, the floor is solid. It has the 1-7/8 Fulton coupler and the original front leg support. Chains are all there but could use de-rusting. I had to have new tires installed on the trailer in order to pull it home. Tires have less than 70 miles on them. Tail light wiring are there but I have not tested them. The tail lights seem to have been replaced by the previous owner. The rest of the trailer seem to be original. The trailer has the pockets for the bows.
Data plate is gone. Don’t know what year it is but looks like a later model. No title or registration. Will be sold with a Bill of Sale. Original California license plate is still attached. I’m not sure what needs to be done to get the trailer titled and registered. Perhaps the license plate can help track the original records.”
Tim spotted this one.
“Needs light and some work call”
This is an unrestored jeep and trailer.
“Not restored. Excellent condition 30,000 miles. Always garaged Completely original”
Tim spotted this well-priced trailer.
“For sale. Steel body single axle utility trailer. Trailer has 15″ tires. Steel bottom and steel stake sides. Fold down tail gate and steel stake back frame. Paint has seen better days and there is some rust. First $300 takes it.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(10/14/2015) It has updated engine and brakes.
“Great 4 wheel drive 1946 Willys Jeep! Has a V-8 engine (from a 1960s Chevy van I think) and power steering. It is a 3-speed, plus a low range and an overdrive, so you’ll have lots of gear choices! It has been a wonderful family fun vehicle for years, but we now rarely use it since our kids are older. It has brand new tires, and it is in good mechanical condition. Floorboards are solid.
Includes a dual axle trailer for towing the Jeep, with trailer brakes (I’ve never used the trailer brakes, so I cannot vouch for them).”
Looks like a good price.
“1946 Bantam Trailer in good condition. Not very original anymore but much more functional.
Coupler changed to 2” ball. Custom work to fit into hitch like the original ones. New safety chains are long enough for modern tow vehicles. Right side tail light / turn signal added. Flat four trailer light connector. All lights work perfectly. Original landing gear leg missing. Bolt on trailer tongue jack with swivel wheel. Original data plate missing.
UPDATE: Was $500. **SOLD**
The good news is that the trailer isn’t a rust bucket and can be used as is. However, a tree dropped on one side damaging it.
“For Sale – 1946 Civilian Bantam Utility Trailer. Needs some TLC but still works well. Side bent from fallen tree. More pictures available.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(05/05/2016) The trailer is cool.
“2nd year of these post war vehicles. I’m 3rd owner and 1st owner outside the original family who bought it new. This is a 2WD model with the Planar front suspension. All seats including the 7th “mother-in-law” seat back by the spare tire. Interior and glass disassembled, bagged and labeled for sandblasting. Pictures show some before and after shots. I have over $1000 in new parts (patch panels, etc.). Also have a matching trailer made from a Panel version of these vehicles.”
Seems a good price.
“For sale- Vintage 1946 Sears and Roebuck 233-46 utility trailer. I believe these were made by the Ben Hur company and sold thru Sears under the David Bradley name. These trailers were designed for, but not limited to, use with Civilian Jeeps. (CJ2 CJ3 CJ3A) Amazingly, this one still has it’s original hitch and data tag, but no fenders. ”
