“Military ammo trailer Vietnam era. Has a rotating tongue which helps out when you are wheeling. I have had this trailer for over 25 years. At one time I was going to paint it to match my jeep that is why the fenders are off, never painted and never put them back on. This pulled great behind my Jeep. No title never had one, I bought it off a add tacked to the wall in Woodys 4×4 in Vancouver.”

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 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”
