Just picked up 0650749. It's a little different in that it has 3 data tags, 2 standard and 1 corps of engineers. Located in Cary, NC.

I am happy to add my Converto to the list. Picked it up last week at the NJ MTA Show.

The trailer is in excellent condition. David Aro is sending me the missing tilt handle...thanks David. Once I assemble the handle and tilt rod, it will be just about complete.

The U.S. Registration number on the data plate reads: 0877681

Says manufactured 1945 But the pad for stamping the month/date is blank.

The contract is W – 11–114 , Contract date 11/1/44

I'll try to post photos

Trailer located in Andover New Jersey

Thanks
Gary Schultz

thank you!
