Vintage Trailers?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. I'm a newbie, having just bought (but not yet got my hands on) a 1961 B-61 tractor. I found this forum and it seems pretty active.

I'm thinking I'd like to find a vintage trailer (preferably a flatbed or lowboy) to match to the tractor. I don't see very many around anywhere and it seems like they almost don't exist. Is there an active trade in old trailers? Any restored ones, etc?

Thanks for any info.

I've found that it pays to look in the weeds and behind the newer stuff in equipment yards, and in farm fields and behind people's barns.

With the price of scrap steel as high as it is, some of these old trailers are not coming to a good end.

Both of you are in good parts of the country for old trailers - not too many rust problems.

It just takes some patience and nosing around.

And I agree - Glenn, that is really nice looking B-61. Welcome aboard.
