Matt wrote me today, letting me know that there’s a raffle for a M-100 trailer at Midwestmilitary.net. Tickets are $20. Proceeds go to help Gary Wirth’s hospital expenses, a result of his battle with cancer. The drawing will be held December 7, 2013. You can purchase a ticket here: http://www.midwestmilitary.net/raffle.html
Learn more about Gary and his fight here: http://www.ewillys.com/pdf/GWRT-FINAL.pdf
“This trailer was donated for raffle by Al and Kelly Lehmann. They had it totally restored by Gary Wirth last fall. It was totally dismantled and rebuilt, including new bearings, brakes, wiring and tires.
Painted in 24087 color scheme. This trailer was not rusty before it was restored. It was a super clean trailer that came from a local city garage that always kept it inside. We have the original data plates and a new set of reproduction plates that will be added soon. Date of delivery is 10/52 and serial number 382368. The original manufacturer was Dunbar-Kapple. Between the cost of purchasing the trailer and the restoration, there is over $3000.00 invested. The wiining ticket holder will be responsible for picking up the trailer or shipping expenses. We can help with the shipping arrangements, so don’t let that stop you from purchasing a chance to win this beautiful piece of history.”
This looks in good condition.

The price is low. Unclear how much value his here.
“I have a Willys Jeep trailer from the 50’s or 60’s it is the civilian model not the military one. It would be good for parts or restoration, let me stress that fact. It would need some welding and body work to make it nice again or you could use it for parts, it has good 16 in rims and the trailer landing gear. I do not have the tailgate for it. Make an offer I have no use for the trailer so i would like to see a jeep guy get it and do something with it. If you are interested email me a number i can reach you at, no number no response, just avoiding scams and other bs, thanks for looking.”
Based on the metal plate in the middle of the tailgate, I’m going to guess this is a Ben Hur Trailer. The Sears David Bradley Trailer looks very similar. I don’t not believe the fenders are original. The earlycj5.net site has a great page on the Ben Hur / David Bradley models. Does anyone know if the Ban Hur letters on the rear of the trailer are original?
“I have a Military WW 2 Ben Hur 1/2 ton trailer for sale that needs to be restored.Roughly 4 x 6. Similar to the M416 army trailer, but larger. Great for the farm.
This model has a factory tailgate.”
