Here are two Knox trailers that were listed on eBay back in 2013:

“This is soooo rare there is barely ANYTHING on Google except this listing now..

1942 Willys Overland Trailer San Antonio, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: trailer

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $700.

This trailer looks like a good price. I got curious about the number of Willys Overland trailers produced. After some searches, I learned that a contract for the first 10,000 trailers was given to Willys. A follow up contract for 5000 trailers was given to Bantam. Near the end of the war there were a variety of companies that produces a small number of trailers. This link shares that information:

This is a World War II Willy utility trailer. It is extremely rugged and has been modified with ball hitch. Great for hunting, camping or hauling.”

1956 M-38A1 Shepherdsville, KY $12,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1, trailer • TAGS: , .

Looks like a nice combo.

I have a body off restoration M38a1 Jeep and trailer parade ready.This is the Marine Corps version with full fording gear.The only thing not restored on this vehicle is the engines internals runs like a top but does burn oil.This vehicle will be on display at the MVPA nationals from June 25 till June 28 at the Kentucky Expo center.This Jeep is immaculate in every detail comes with many extra parts including etra engine block, heads,rear ends ,and transmission and transfer case.Biggest reason I am selling is due to the fact that this vehicle has a top speed of 45 to 50mph and around here you would be run over at that speed on highway.I can be contacted by phone or text also at 4one9six0two4zero33.Where i was from in Ohio there were enough 55mph roads to travel to many shows and parades but down here it has to be trailered for your own safety.Bulldog on hood not included.Might consider trade of equal value on Cobra Mustang 99-2004″
