^^^ Sharp...but not how sure that small tube mounted in the door pins holdin the 240 will hold up. :D

Did it have a rear winch?

nick50471 11-01-2011 02:49 AM

Yes it has a rear winch.

I saw a 100% WW2 version at the antique Steam Fest this summer. The guy had even done his Bantam trailer tarp ropes with the 'correct knot' for hold it down.

Amazing, and of course my camera battery was SOL.

'Military look' vs 'military spec' has a wide range of interpretation though.

Love them tires.....I went a LOT of places unimaginable with that exact tread pattern/size.

Dogface 11-04-2011 08:50 AM

You can't tell from the pic of mine above but it had the same tires. Standard Mil issue of the day...

They can be found but often expensive. Look up the Military Vehicle Preservation Assoc... My guess would be MVPA.org. See if they have a classified section. I was a member at one time. Local chapters have meets and sometimes things are for sale. They are cool, esp. in resto'd condition.

Here are a whole bunch. Some of these auctions just closed (today), $150. A bunch left.

Love it ... what's yer target...little rodents I suspect.

JeeperJake 11-04-2011 09:52 AM

beware on WHICH trailer model you seek....those listed on the above link are modern design and 3x heavier than the WW2 Bantam style....and frankly I don't believe will serve well behind a WRANGLER with 2000# limitation.

There is a whole family of 1/4 ton "ammo trailers" which the round-fendered Bantam was the original.

Other companies were soon recruited to fill the need.

The post-war versions from other makers have the 'square fender' but very similar weight/load specs.

Typical 500# trailer weight and 1500# load, give or take a bit.

These were produced thru the 1960s and are often found but growing more uncommonly so, at decent prices of a few hundred $$ and up. The actual "Bantam" marque commands a significant premium.

I sold an original with brass plate intact 15 years ago for considerably more than I gave. After 15 years of hard use, my original $200 investment finally was retrieved by an actual collector who paid dearly for the pleasure. And I spent the next 15 years lamenting my haste in selling such a useful trailer, despite not having a Jeep until recently.

Those Bantams in prime condition can go for thousands in my area due to rarity. Even lesser condition models with various cancers etc are spendy.

My little Bantam fleet was decreased by 1 recently when a buddy gave me an almost embarrassing amount in trade for it.

The true "1/4 ton" round fender Bantams are my favorite.

There are serious collectors out there who can tell you model numbers, etc. There are considerable on-line links to search.

Some near-copy newly built commercial units are available.

New costs more. Prime original costs more.

For my use 80% of the time, the 1/4 ton military trailer is perfect. Empty they tow like nothing is back there.

Seek & ye shall find. Unless you need/want/can tow the bigger/heavier models, don't confuse the similarity in appearances.
