This jeep and the trailers make a rare combination.  The MB was from the last production run and came out in mid-45.  It has never been patched or rewelded, and is 95% original as the day it was built.  The 1/2 ton trailer was made by Couse Labs and built as a Spares Trailer for the Navy.  Both are outfitted with an array of original items which would have been found aboard the USS Shangri-La in 1945 and during Japan occupation.  The Converto T-6 1/4 ton trailer is a very rare Navy example contracted by the Bureau of Aeronautics.  I use these vehicles primarily for parades.  Includes all the original manuals and spare parts and tools.
