Little Red Wagon

Just picked this up down the road. $75, found on Craigslist yesterday. I'm pretty happy with the price. Especially here in Northern Virginia! Soon it'll be yellow to match the AC B-10.

Yep, and the feller who sold it me didn't know that it tipped all the way to upside down. And now I can use the tailgate to prototype a second for the old dump cart that I bought some time ago without a tailgate. Paid a lot more for that one and the bottom is rusted out in spots. Seemed like a good idea at the time!

Nice, and it has a tailgate too.

Randy I did the same thing with a Simplicity trailer. below is the finished version. Vintage Decals made these for me from measurements from an early 60's trailer. They have the set on their web page if needed...good luck sm01

That's what mine will look like. I wonder though, are the wheels/tires of the same style as they were back in the day of originality?

Thanks for the wheel/tire info. And I have a gallon of the Old Cat Yellow used in my HVLP sprayer.

And a mere 17 days later I now have a little yellow wagon. Once the rain stops in another day I'll be out into the yard to start the pick up sticks game. Next, on to the Homelite chainsaw restore job. Here's the before....

And after the restore job.

Randy the decals on mine I had made by Vintage Decals. They have the set on their web page. The pics & dimensions for mine came from an all original trailer that I bought for Nathan Gale. The one in your pic is from a different time. The decals changed several times over the yrs....FYI sm01

Here's the final product ready to roll at the Cumberland Valley Antique Engine and Machinery Association Spring Fling on April 25th. Decals are thanks to Vintage Reproductions.
