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.

Well....later never happened, so I borrowed the 40' step deck trailer from the IT Peterbilt and loaded up this fine example of a -seriously ugly but cool classic- Winnebago Brave of of 70's vintage.

this is a resin kit, built from BoS of Germany, Best of Show kits are assembled, painted and road ready, just as you see it!! Absolutely outstanding quality!! It was my first order from these guys and I am ready for another :)

Here is another one , just featuring the 2 amigos


Just having some fun on a holiday enjoying the sunshine and summer days :)
