Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Help me identify this bed! (Round TWO!) :-)

Okay, think I am finally able to add more pics of my new-to-me-trailer.

Any help identifying it would be very much appreciated. I *think* it's an old Ford bed, but there are no markings or imprints that I see off hand.

Thanks fellas!

Ford had beds 1932-1947, 1948-1950, late 50-72. If it is not pre 1932 then I would guess the 48-50 group minus the tail gate and lack of extra holes for the large fenders. Even the the sides don't look embossed. Late 1950 begins flat sides but also ends the curvy corner posts. Sorry, can't tell from small pics.

Dodge had flat sides and curvy corner posts at the same time. Check for a match with Dodge in the 30's and 40's.

Thanks Vern, will start looking that direction.

Could it be a Jeep/Willys trailer?

If it has an opening tailgate [as it appears to have] it is not a "jeep"[Bantam} trailer as they were made to float / hold water.

This trailer box has been made with various parts from other truck beds. The side panels have pocket holes rough cut . Long side panels cut down to length could result in this. The tailgate is not what a pickup truck would have and the fenders are not large enough to be early '50's Dodge. I believe a homemade trailer from 2 cut down side panels, tailgate made from pieces and trailer fenders. The frame and axle not original to this box. My 2 cents worth.

Have a great day out there.
