Picked up a bantam trailer today.  I don't even have my jeep done but I couldn't walk away.  I've wanted a bantam for a while now.  It's in pretty rough shape, but I only paid $100.00 for the thing.  I figure the Coupler and the front stand are worth that.  It doesn't have any data tags on it so I don't know what year it is.  If you have any idea please comment.  Also is there a known source for the front panel rear tailgate and the floor at this time?  They all need to be replaced or repaired.  The right side frame is in great shape but the left is rusted through.  It looks like angle iron so im guessing thats got to be easy to find.  At this point it rolls around fine and I spent some time today freeing up the coupler and the stand.  I think the coupler needs a new bolt because I can't quite get it to tighten up on a 1 7/8" ball.  The treads are a little messed up.  Should be a great little trailer someday.

Jeff,
 
Great find and a even greater price!
 
All the panels are available from JeePanels Plus (207) 743-7671 and are top notch USA made panels.
 
Can you email me all your pictures and I'll start you a page on the bantamt3c.com web site.
