I would be willing to bet Sanger or Kindsvater Boats was involved in the fiberglass part of these trailers.

I think Ed Willis (Mr. Ed) built boats. He was a sponsor for Charger and Sanger though.

I posted a reply but have no idea where it went so I will try again. I just joined HAMB a few days ago so I am not confident yet. The Mr. Ed trailers as mentioned, were built in Fresno, CA (about 100 mi. north of me) from about 1968-76. My good friend here in Bakersfield purchased one a few yrs back because he is a front-end nostalgic drag racer. The trailer was from Sacramento. Someone cut the nose off back about 6 feet to make it a front-flip. I have since re-fiberglassed it back into one piece and looks pretty good. I would post a few pics but not sure how on the HAMB forum. Email me if you still want more information on the trailer. drbubp@hotmail.com Dennis

A friend here in TX had one (his son R.C. is on here) that was originally used to haul one of Woody's Magicar and while it was a very cool piece about all it was good for was keeping the car dry. Very little room for tools, fuel, or any spares. I have an older short trailer that has much more room than the Mr. Ed, but I can't stand up it in and rarely use it.
But they do look cool, period correct, and are aerodynamic.

You see a couple pictures posted in the latest issue of Hot Rod, even make reference to them in one caption.

I saw one a while back. but the front was really narrow and felt lined or something. H removed the front wheels and slipped in on a dolly using that door you see to align it and remove the dolly after the nose was in place. then it was strapped in rear and in front (through same door). It was an awfully big process to get it in.
