    The gray box has a T front axle under it (2 wheel trailer) could the box also be a T?? maybe a TT? Just thinking someone built the trailer out of common parts. The T hubs were drilled to take steel wheels, pulls nice!

  7. Based on my own experience from ordering the wrong thing, on the 48-mid fifty F-1, the chain locking tab is located in the tailgate "curl" at top. The later (mid-fifty to 52) is riveted just below the "curl". Based on that I'd say the red one is 48 through mid fifty.

    Could be, if we were closer it would be something I wouldn't mind having for a future project. Bob
