Bantam trailer restoration resources  

During and after World War II, American Bantam built far more utility trailers than all the American Austin and Bantam vehicles combined. The BT3 military trailers are highly popular among jeep enthusiasts. It's easy to discern between the military trailer and the BT3-C civilian trailer.  The military trailer has a pintle hitch and doesn't have a tailgate so that it can float in water. The civilian trailer has a standard ball hitch and tailgate. You'll find more photos on this third party website.

More information about Austin Seven   

The roots of the American Austin can be traced to a single ancestor, the English Austin Seven. In 1904, Herbert Austin launched the Austin Motor Company in England. At first, Austin built large cars. When taxes were levied against car motors based on horsepower, he introduced the 7-hp. (British measurement) Austin Seven in 1922. Licensed versions include the German Dixi, the French Rosengart and the American Austin.  More information about Austin Seven can be found at this website.
