Hello everyone!
I just joined this page and today I just brought home my Bantam T3-C.  The seller has lost the title, which I am about to apply for.

My question is the Serial # is S 9481.  I cannot find any information on the sites I could find.  Is there any way to find out what year this Bantam is?  The serial tag is identical to the one in the upper right corner of this page.

Also, on the left side of the front of the trailer is another tag.  As best I can read it says:

MISS. MOTOR
VEHICLE COMP
M 86782

Does anyone have any idea what this is and means?

Thanks!

Mike

I believe this may be as good as it gets... If you're looking for "official" numbers to take to the DMV it's a unicorn so far Cry

1946 CJ2A #69750 - "Plowshare"
Bantam T3-C #8502
Bantam T3-C #9704
Bantam T3-C #15849
1969 Kaiser CJ5 (sold)

I'm so efficient that I almost always have parts leftover ;)

Serial # is S 9481 - there will not be any letters "S" in the serial number

Could you post a picture of the tag or email it to me bantamt3c@gmail.com

I will guess that the data tag that says:

MISS. MOTOR
VEHICLE COMP
M 86782

was issued by the state of Mississippi for title & registration purposes.

I have no idea if Illinois even requires trailers of that size to be licensed/registered. They may not even issue titles for that sized trailer. Many states do not. Call your local Department of Motor Vehicles, DMV, & ask them about it.

Now if you are wanting to find the manufacturing date for that trailer, other folks on here will be of more help then I can be. I just fix them & use them.

Illinois unfortunately does require a title and license on all trailers.

Still need to see the original Bantam Data Plate to assist.
