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.  Aside from needing to get the 75 year old dried cement out of the bed, this was a perfect one to restore. It even has both of the original BF Goodrich military issue tires, which are extremely rare. The dump bed is now cleared of the remnants of cement and is totally dent and rust free.

Original BF Goodrich tires- EXTREMELY rare

Even the center mini dump slot is there and straight.
Data Plate – 1945
Pintle was never cut as well. Jack leg is bent, but we will heat and straighten

 

THIS TRAILER IS AVAILABLE FOR SALE, and is heading into the shop December 16, 2020 for paint and photoshoot before being formally listed

The rear tailgate is of the later version, as shown in this graphic below- The image is also a link to the online PDF version os the full manual for this trailer-
