EXTERIOR. SOLD #1122165002019 (J.N.W.)
The exterior of this vintage Spartan is very original and very nice. It has the original doors which have the cool port hole style windows. It has all the original windows which are complete with all hardware. This trailer is built like an airplane with riveted construction for long life and durability. It has aircraft grade aluminum that can be polished up to a mirror like shine.
Frame and A -frame. Frame has some surface rust but appears to be good and solid in all areas. One side of the A-frame had some rust issues so we put one of our A-frame repair kits on it so that it would be safe to tow back to our shop.
Dents scratches and damage. The worst damage on this trailer is a small patch and small wrinkle on the very front of the trailer. Other than this, there are just very minor flaws and a few very small patches. There are two vertical areas on the driver’s side that appear a little darker than the rest of the trailer. These are areas we had to scrub real hard to remove sealer that was on the side of the trailer. These areas will dull in time or totally disappear if the trailer is polished.
Entry door front . Has the original aluminum entry door with the cool porthole style window. It has the original Bargman brand L-66 lock which is complete and in working order and does have one key. The exterior skin of the door has some minor oxidation but no holes and it does have a few very small dents. Door still has about 3/4 of the original interior vinyl cover. It is in poor shape but would work great for a pattern. Door will need new seals.

Has the original Bargman brand L-66 lock which is complete and in working order but do not have any keys. The exterior skin on the door is in very good condition however it does have one very small dent.

Hitch coupler. Has the original cast-iron hitch coupler which is in working condition. It cranks up and down fine but could stand to be lubricated.
Roof and Vents. Has the original aluminum cambered roof. A cambered roof is much better and stronger than a flat roof because it sheds water better and can hold up to higher snow loads in winter climates. We have re-coated all the roof seams. Roof has coating on entire roof including the top radius’s. Both roof vents will need new operators but we do carry these in our parts e-store. It looks like the front roof vent has been sealed shut.
