FS Steel Ben Hur Trailer (MD)

Post by Forgotten Field »

Price is $1050.00. Steel Ben Hur that has seen better days, but has both wheels, hand brake and hand brake cable bell crank, both tail light brackets plus one tail light, original casting and lunette, and one fender (you are welcome to leave it on my scrap pile, however, as that is where it belongs). It rolls nicely, but one tire and wheel are not on right. I don't think it is a hub issue as it rolls okay, but the wheel is either not properly mounted or the tire is so worn that it wobbles. There is some rust-through on the bed floor on the right front, plus some other bed and side rust through that would be very easily fixable with a day or two's welding. All the cross members on the bottom are solidly coated in rust, but no rust-through. Sold with bill of sale. I can assist loading. Located near Baltimore MD.

**Update: I have sourced both fenders for this trailer, the landing leg plus wheel (pneumatic tire), and will be fabricating a tailgate for this trailer. I have adjusted the price for everything but the tailgate. When it gets added, price will go up accordingly. The current lunette on the trailer is going to be replaced by another one (I had to use it on another project) which has had some of the ring shaved off to fit a smaller pintle hook (this means you can pull it with a jeep). It doesn't affect functionality but might not be aesthetically pleasing to all collectors. This trailer could also come with a pair of used 7.50 x 20 NDT's which have decent tread and are useable but old.

My garage: Restored Old Henry, and have had this WC51 on the road around 3 years now... Currently finishing a brace of Ben Hur trailers, and starting a 67 Galaxie fastback. Concurrent with the WC I restored a 74 TR6... Oh the joys.

You wouldn't want to part with just the lunette and casting? I would take the whole thing if it was closer.

I won't part this trailer out. I will have a lunette ring, nut, and casting which will be available shortly, not off of this trailer. The lunette had some of the ring pretty expertly "shaved off" by torch at some point in its life. It is only the lunette, casting, and nut. It came from a water trailer which was cut up before my friend got to it. I will get some photos of it today if you are interested.
