Question interested in vintage 50s trailer for my big trucks

I am looking for a dual or triple axle trailer for my fleet of 56 and 57 F600s.
If you look in the old brochures you will see pics of the car haulers,etc.
Anyone have a lead of some I can check into?
I would like enclosed and not more than 35 ft long.
Will look cool for hauling my trucks around .
Thank you
Bill

Bill,

I know it wouldn't be any good for hauling your other trucks around but and old fuel oil tanker would be very cool. I love the old art deco styling.

Good luck on your search
Bobby

There was a thread about 4 months ago that showed a bunch of old car haulers.

I was talking with Chuck Mantiglia earlier this week and he was telling about an old one he's found for his 110" COE. You might check with him to see if he knows of others. Stu

Thanks and the pics are exactly what I am looking for. Anyone have any ideas of where I would go to find one?
I have a guy from the ATHS coming over and see what he has to offer.
I spoke with Chuck a few days ago,and he is really excited about these trailers.

That slideshow is what I need........just have to find a trailer in decent shape. Maybe in Mexico.....Bill

Thanks Dick for the emails. I want a 1950s style if possible to match-up to the 57,and maybe the 56 if I can buy 2.
I figure with 2 trailers...I can haul some of my trucks around ....and most likely to Florida.

I just got a lead from Chuck,and it is in Mississippi. I have a buddy in Meridian,and we will go together and look at it.
This is a 1951 TRANSPORT TRAILER and was restored in the 80s for a guy with ATHS and he is getting rid of the whole setup. That would look so retro and to pull my trucks in a few loads would be ideal.
