Ben Hur Trailer

Post by Ted Gates » Sun Apr 29, 2018 8:52 am

I restored this trailer in mid 2000's. Pulled behind my WC56 in parades. Been stored indoors under cover for 8 years. Ready to be enjoyed by someone else.
It a steel tub trailer with steel caster wheel. I stripped it, rebuilt everything, new: harness, lights, tires, 319 paint. Straight tub. Parking brake complete and operational.

$1800. Located in Eaton Rapids MI 48827

Pm me for pictures.

Bill of sale only. No data plate.

Hello,

Good luck with the sale !!!

Looks like a great trailer, and very useful to have around to use as needed!

It is ready for someone to add their custom markings and star to it.


Best Regards,

Ray

That is one great looking G518! I’m glad it’s not being offered in my AO or I would be thinking of have a second Ben Her. The price is not bad either. Those 7.50x20 NDT’s are not cheap either. My G518 pulls and travels great behind my Grand Cherokee. This trailer is a nice size for taking to shows, going camping, or hauling whatever. 8)

Thanks guys. I know this is a great trailer, I restored it! I really can't believe it is still for sale, but, it is!

I am restoring a identical trailer. Based on the metal structure on the outside of the tongue arms I believe it is a Nash - Kelvinator model.
