FOR SALE 1950 Mitsubishi 1/4-ton trailer (((SOLD)))

Post by Fred Coldwell » Thu Mar 25, 2021 7:31 pm

For Sale is one 1950 Mitsubishi ¼-ton jeep trailer that is a nearly identical copy of a WW II Bantam or Willys ¼-ton jeep trailer. This trailer has a thin neck lunette, Bantam style tow chains, wedges and hooks with “FIJI” on them, a MBT style landing leg with 3-position swivel, a hand operated parking brake, a Japanese blackout light switch, 4 stamped rope ties per side, two rope ties up front and one in the rear, a floor drain in the right rear corner, a fixed rear panel and 3 hole spring hangers. It has postwar wiring with a 4 prong WW II trailer plug, late WW II Yankee brand US Army taillights, and 4 round reflectors. Old Goodyear All-Service NDT tires are mounted on postwar slotted wheels. The floor and body panels are all very straight with only one small rusty area and very minor scratches, if that. The spot welds from original assembly are visible around the top rail, as they should be. Given its excellent original condition, this will be an easy restoration. With one minor rust repair and fresh paint this trailer will show very well.

It has a clear Colorado title as a 1950 Willys utility trailer using a Colorado-assigned VIN. The Colorado license plate is current. A faded blank Willys data plate is riveted to its front panel, but the trailer comes with a brand new Robert DeReuter Willys MBT data plate with the assigned VIN and a 1950 DoD stamped on it. Once installed, this new data plate matches the clear Colorado title and should make inspection and registration in your state very easy. It also comes with the Colorado assigned VIN sticker to install inconspicuously, if necessary.

The trailer is painted in grey primer and has one small rusty area in the floor’s left rear corner. Repair that area, scrub down and touch up the primer, paint the trailer with lusterless or semi-gloss olive drab paint and it will be all ready to tow behind your jeep. It is the perfect companion to a MB or GPW in Korean action markings, or a very convincing “3 foot away” MBT behind any MB/GPW in WW II markings. Price is only $995.00 FOB Denver, Colorado. Cash or good funds only, no trades. PM or email me with any questions whatsoever or for further information or photos. Thank you for looking.

Price just cut in half for this very nice 1/4-ton trailer, now only $495.00 FOB Denver, CO. Too nice to scrap but I'm getting desperate. Want it gone soon. Must be removed within 30 days of purchase after which daily rent begins at $100.00 per day. Thank you.

Come on guys! This is a steal! The lunette, casting and parking brake handle are worth that!!!

Fred, if I were closer and had the money!

E-mail sent.

I'm going to be in NE New Mexico the first half of July and will have space on my tow trailer heading back to Houston, TX on July 15th if a potential buyer can work with Fred to get it to Raton, NM on July 11th or Antonito, CO on July 9th.

Thank you everyone for your positive comments. If I lived on any USA coast, this 1/4-ton trailer would have been gone a few years ago. But location, distances, and recent increases in transportation costs force me to offer an insane price for a very nice 1/4-ton military trailer.

Thank you Seth for offering to haul this trailer from southern Colorado/northern New Mexico to Houston in mid-July. That may help entice some possible buyers along your route home. If it hasn't sold by early July, I might be tempted to tow it to you and ride with Terry John's group on the Cumbres & Toltec narrow gauge Railroad. We'll see what shakes out. In the meantime, I'm hoping someone nearby will see the value in this trailer and purchase it.

Bill H.: Is there any way you could change the price in the header of my first post to $495.00 from $995.00? Doing so may attract more eyeballs. I'd do it myself but it is now past the allowable time for me to edit my first post, so it remains cast in pixels. Thank you in advance.
Happy Jeep Trails,

Fred,

If it hasn't sold by early July and you can get it to me in SE CO / NE NM I'll buy it at that price.
