Bought yesterday from Boise craigslist. Straight sheetmetal and just a little surface rust underneath. Feeling very lucky! Thanks to Cliff in Pocatello for info on Bantams and for saying “go get it!” The ID tag is painted over. Along the top row from left to right I can barely see an “L” and a “3 -“. I can clearly see “Serial – 11629”. Underneath that I can clearly see BANTAM and the rest of the writing on the 1” x 3” tag. The rivets holding it on look like the original rivets I’ve seen in pictures. Even though it is a civilian model, there is OD green paint under the current paint on the body and the wheels, it has brake drums and a lunette. So, I’m wondering if this may have been used by the military or if a p.o. modified it? The owner I bought it from got it at an auction up near McCall, Idaho about 1 ½ years ago and had no info on it. Here are pics and questions: Tailgate is bolted shut. No, fender isn't dented, just a shadow. The word "Bendix" is stamped on the brake drum backing plates along with some numbers. This looks like a farm implement wheel to me? Where wheels like this ever used by military on these trailers? The wheel has the same shade of OD green paint under the white as the OD green that's under the metallic green currently on the body. Is this a military style brake drum, or just some trailer house drum that a p.o. added? The trailer came w/ a pintle mounted on a stinger. The letters TH are stamped into the side of the hooks.
