Another angle, you can see in the tailgate at the bottom where the gate was cut from the older trailer.

Still not sure if it is an MBT or Bantam since the data plate could have come from any Bantam and the trailer could be an MBT or a Bantam....

Data plate looks to me to say "2 - 10 - 45" and not October 2, 1945. So it is Feb. 10, 1945 I don't think the serial number is 60220, can you confirm that please? I think it is "60822".

Here is the gusset plate with the ACM number on it. You will need to remove the bolts holding the left front spring hanger from this gusset plate and wire wheel it for the number. Look for it to probably be 128xxx or 129xxx if the data plate is original to this trailer.

If you can send me this info with a better data plate pic and the answers to the questions in my "How To ID..." sticky at the top of the trailer forum, I can check the ACM and see if the data plate is original to that trailer. You can see that it isn't riveted to the tub so it may not be original. The ACM number is STAMPED lightly into the gusset plate and that's where we have to start to correctly ID this trailer.
slowness equal accuracy, accurary equal speed !!!!!!
