Just picked up this t3-c, surprisingly solid, new owner but a long time fan, thinking about leaving as-is for a while,

Nice score!
I agree that you should grease her up, make sure the tires are sound and leave her as-is for a while. Patina is great!

That is a very nice trailer. Please keep her as a survivor!! Use a little linseed oil and denatured alcohol mix to bring out any color that is still there.

Thanks Jay, I might try that, there is not much original color left, do you just use a 50/50 mix?

Nice trailer! Great find. It took me three trailers to finally find one that was really solid all over, but it's coated in five layers of paint!

Had to hook it up to see what it looked like, seems like it is low in front, flipped the triangle drawbar up still a little low..Coupler on trailer is an ideal, maybe not the original Fulton, could this be my issue? I'll probably just make some sort of spacer on the Jeep hitch...

That looks really good, and I agree, save it the way it is.   How is the tailgate and light?

Throw 300-400lbs in it and see how it sits...it's made to work.

Looks good.   Check out the Bantam T3-c page, your tail light might have a later Arrow lens.
