Always wanted one of these. Found it 4 miles from my house. Even has a PA title. 1967. Best thing was $300. You can only read part of the Data plate but it’s there

That is all sorts of cool!!!

It's absolutely worthless without a fully readable data plate, so if you want someone to take it off your hands.... I would be willing to give you some of your money back.

Just kidding of course - great find!

I've never seen one in that shape go for so little, you got the deal of the day!

Great score! You will absolutely love that thing.

My BT3-C is getting a makeover fpr the magazine after years of neglect during which it just kept on doing everything I ever asked of it.

This is what mine looks like right now. Picked it up in upstate NY a month ago. ($400) Also doing a overland build similar to Eric's present trailer, but maybe a little different. But definitely roof top tent. When I find one reasonably priced and after buying new Mud Terrains for the YJ.

Your plate still has all the info, but the black background is partially missing, but that plate is still good. Someone is making new plates for them, but I would just keep that like it is. Your floors are pitted just like everyone elses floor. Mine is exactly like that. Floor is still serviceable like that. I'm just going to ad a stall mat after I bed line it. I sand blasted mine first and it opened up a few pin holes in the floor, but not replacing it for few pin holes. Great find, they are so easy to work on and look absolutely great behind any Jeep.

Doing mine for a magazine project. Two installments in the last two issues: http://currentissue.jpfreek.com

I used stall mat to help my floor, it’s more dented than yours and more rust but it’s super solid still. I debated trying to sandblast mine but the never ending winter up here this year pushed my timing back too far to get into that, so I’m rolling with the patina and 8 year-olds pint job (meaning done by 8 year-olds) :thumbsup:

Eric, where did you get the slide out bracket in yours? Went to Kittery Trading Post in Maine yesterday and surprisingly, they had a Tepui set up, three person for 1800. Didn't pull the trigger yet, have not had enough shopping time.

It’s the MORryde Trail Kitchen.

I've got two of them, a bit over the top perhaps but so be it! I love them, terrific trailers and built to withstand anything!

My 2nd one was equally rusted, I had it acid dipped to remove 100% of the rust (and a bit of the parent metal as well), and then had it powder coated to match the JKU. It worked like a charm!
