Here is a rare opportunity to restore a shovelhead masonite trailer. For a time I thought this was homebuilt, but I found a brass tag in the door frame with a number (HT 2986) which makes me think it was commercially produced. When I first saw this trailer in the 1970s, the interior was all dark wood which you can still see inside the cabinet in the pictures. New owner decided to make it a playhouse for his grandchildren so the interior and exterior were painted as you see it now. He also removed the light fixtures (cloth wiring still in place). He also had a piece of plywood added over the passenger (door side) of the trailer. Wood spoke wheels are in good shape but rubber is checked and will need replacement. Wood frame of trailer is in excellent shape except for the original wooden hitch plank- at some point a long piece of u channel metal was added under it and now has an old but functional ball hitch. Original windows w/ original hardware. Front of trailer between the 2 cabinets is where a wood stove would have been- I’ll include the vintage kerosene heater there now, however, the vintage hotplate seen on the counter will not be included. Screen door is there but is not attached to the frame right now. More pictures available upon request. This is a fantastic piece of trailer history. Trailer is sold as-is with bill of sale, no title. $3500.00
