WTS: 1945 Converto Trailer

Post by Myers » Sat Mar 16, 2019 3:41 pm

I have decided to part ways with my 1945 Converto Dump Trailer. I honestly believe it is one of the most thoroughly restored Convertos out there. I really hate letting it go, as I put many many hours into it, but I have decided to change focus with my meager collection. A LOT of work was done, and no corners were cut. My restoration thread can attest to that. I could list all the details, but the restoration thread really covers it best.

Since the restoration it has been towed approximately 30-50 miles.. It has carried some light loads that have left some minor scratches and scuffing, but nothing serious at all. Everything works exactly as it should. The trailer does exhibit pitting, but there is not an ounce of bondo or other filler material on it. It is all steel/primer/paint.

I am asking $3000 firm

Thanks

Thanks Oz, I appreciate it. Hoping it can go to a good home. It has been garaged kept ever since I restored it, so it's had an easy second life so far.
