  • Trailer Toter

    Interesting...
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/RARE-...QQcmdZViewItem
    The serial starts with E13 making this a 1 ton. I had thought that all Trailer Toters were E28's or heavier trucks.[:0] Or is this likely an "after market" conversion.[?]

        Ron - Opening bid is only $600.

            Perhaps he put off doing the tune up and starting it because there is no ignition switch! [:0] He failed to mention that (and the horn button) in his list of missing items. It might be worth $600 if you lived next door and could haul it home with a tractor, but this truck is useful only as a show piece. With such a short wheelbase they are impractical for driving. Now, if I could find a Stude road tractor that would be another thing....[]

                Good point Guido. Still, it would be useful for a fifth-wheel trailer, wouldn't it? After all, that's all the commercial truck's trailers are. It'd still pull a lot more than Ed would.

                Though the truck is only $600 the shipping would be several thousand, due to its location and the fact it doesn't run. Therefore two to three thousand dollars is out of my league.[8] Sigh.

                    Gary - Back to the original ?... Have you ever heard of/seen a [u]1 ton</u> Toter before... I had thought they were primarily 1 1/2 ton with the odd 2 ton.[?]

                    Ron - I appreciate your position - I would not travel that far for this truck even if it was a freebie (unless there was a part on it I needed.

                        I dont have the TW article handy but I believe most were E13's with the odd E28.
                        Remember mobile homes were a lot smaller then(Ricky and Lucy towed one with a Cadillac) and even today the trucks that pull are usually 1 1/2ton to 2 ton trucks.

                            Heh - after seeing one of these drive around a bit at South Bend - man, I wouldn't want to drive one cross town, let alone on some hour-long trek![xx(]
