- FOCUS ON TRAILERS -
The Bantam in Detail.
Having looked around the Web for years now, I could never find any good close up pics of the Bantam Trailer, although there are a few good sites that deal with Trailers, I thought these may come in handy for someone who was looking for the “details” rather than the “overall general appearance” .. Naturally I have to thank Alasdair Brass in New Zealand for the use of his Trailer for the pics, these were taken when I spent time with Al in 2001, one or two were subsequently taken after I got home, that’s when you discover the new digital camera isn’t as good as the manufacturers advertise them to be.
BE AWARE THESE PICS ARE NECESSARILY LARGE, CLICK ON THE THUMBNAIL TO OPEN
The trailer shown is a 1943 Bantam T3, Serial Number 36501, and Dated November, 15th, 1943 (15-11.43)
It’s fitted in some of the shots with a travel bracket for towing so that traffic indicators and brake lights can be used for safety, the Travel Bracket can be quickly removed for displays, requiring no additional holes to be drilled in the rear cross member of the frame.
A drawing of this Travel Bracket will shortly be available off the JeepDraw site.
You’re welcome to download the pics for your own use, but not for other web page reproductions.
I've included a few links on the Links Page having Trailer information, if there are any others, please let me know and I'll add them, in the meantime… enjoy!

To show some more of the Converto T-6 Trailer and the differences, between the handbrake assembly of the T-6 compared to an Willys MBT and Bantam T3. Here's some pics from a G503 Member... Thanks Ernie.
On the T-6 Converto there's also provision for staked pockets .Joe Potter Photo
