Just purchased this;

For $295, I just couldn't say no!
I didn't even try to talk him down.
It's a 1968 model. Has five leaf springs making it the 1500 pound load rated model.
It should have 12" wheels. But, this one has 8" wheels.
It's 130" long by 54" wide.
It's been stored in the barn most of its life.
Seller told me his father bought it new.
He had a couple of allis chalmers mowers back then.
Deck is bent down between cross beams.
This trailer is made of mostly 1/16" thick steel.
Other than some dents here and there, and the surface rust, it's in good shape.
I'll be putting new lights on it soon!

Send me some pics. Please if you can. Probably just the instant garage, one for your place and one for my buddies place. Spend the weekend setting them up.

   Nice score, I have been working on one for the last 3 weeks.  I would love to have some dimensions of that winch mount bracket.

The wheels on this trailer are correct.

We added two spring plys and higher rated tires to Dads to up the rating
