I also got a car carrier in this gift box, that gave me the idea to load 'er up with some classics, but because I didn't modify it, the cars/trucks would not fit in so I hooked it into the trailer I had already made. Colours are a bit much but shown here are a few of my latest additions. The Porsche on the top deck was also in the gift box.

here is another view

or a 53' trailer might work

Here is an older build of the awesome Lonestar Barrett Livestock trailer that was transformed from a tandem to a tridem version. Thought I would hook it in to this one to have a look, not half bad.

and this view

and one from the back

Jim; in my humble opinion it should have a 40 or 45 foot trailer.
There weren't any long trailers in common use in the mid to late 1960's.
Those were all post 1980.

I know this is a Freightliner but this is like your wheelbase.



Here's an Emeryville from Gussie's collection

Rob, while I agree the trailer isn't vintage correct, this build is more of a resto updated tractor with some old school features. I have another Emeryville that is more traditional and would look great with the older trailers. Just for a look though, I may hook it into some of them.......later.
