Hi,I think your frame is too short,the trailer will be too much close to the cab,then I find that you will not have to put  spring back of years 70.You should change nose gear weels ,they are not time.These observations are constructivent.

after lookin at a lot of picturers [ only black and white ] and from a distance you can see that the trailer very narrow to the cab is

also a short chassis

six spoke wheels whit a baby moon cover

the one i see in color was from akron [ red ] but also from a distance

if you got a picture from a autocar very close i wil see him

from that time is not much material in books ore good and clean picture,s

I want to hire that guy in white that works on your stuff! :D   I got KW w900 with a leaking forward rear differential that needs needs to be worked on.  SURELY that will get him dirty.

 

Great stuff.  Enjoy your posts.

Looks good the short wheelbase is actually typical back then as most trailers had round noses.

Love this. I think the orange with black looks excellent. Short frame is probably right for the era as the trailers of that time had round nose.
