1954 Ranger Project on eBay (NM)

Just happened to see this one on eBay. Looks like a lot of work, but an interesting design.

Coolest tent trailer ever made. Too bad the pattern pieces are gone. Needs an pro.

I saw this too. If if were closer to me...... I didn't even know they were using fiberglass in trailers in the '50's! Can't believe it has zero bids so far.

Doesn't worth the troubles with restoration.

Are you saying it isn't worth the trouble of restoration?

Correct. Everything reaches end of life sometime.

That's true but until this is a pile of molten FG it's worth saving. There were only around 200 made. Sure would look great behind a '53 - '56 Ford .

I was thinking that too Dave. Can picture it behind a 50's T Bird. And fiberglass is almost always salvagable if you have enough determination.

Tail lights appear to be '53 or '54 Ford units.

It appears to need a whole new frame, floor, canvas, and cabinetry, as well as fiberglass work. It's not surprising it isn't getting bids at $1000. At half that for the right person... maybe. It would almost have to be a vintage car owner- someone with deep pockets, a well-equipped shop, and a wide-ranging skill set!

For the cost and time involved to resurrect it, one could still have that look by purchasing a brand new "Relic" brand fiberglass travel trailer.
