Vehicle description

You are bidding on a 1945 BT3-C, 1/4 Ton Civilian Trailer. It was built by the Bantam Car Company in Butler, Pennsylvania. Bantam invented the original WWII jeep and built approximately 2,500 pre-production jeeps prior to Willys and Ford taking over the production of jeeps in late 1941 or "42. Bantam was then relegated throughout the remainder of WWII to building the 1/4 ton trailer that was typically towed by either the Willys MB or the Ford GPW. This trailer is a very early model that was in all probability, made from parts left over from the war time production of the military "jeep" trailer. It is both very original and very complete. It is also an excellent example of an unmolested trailer in good to very good, original condition. One of its key features is the original "Covered Wagon" wood frame work and hardware. The only known, non-original items on the trailer are the wheels. As early as this trailer is, it probably would have departed the factory originally with left over combat wheels. Starting in 1942 all of the MB and GPW jeeps were equipped with these wheels. No title, Bill of Sale only. Sold as is. where is.
