Hi,

Hi, I again, I dare to ask again if you can help me decipher my VIN...MY VIN is a bit different from the example in this forum, I understand that SS is for Stanly steel and that FW is Ford Wayne, but what means the D and the torsion is than VXF2? (HOE MUCH IS THAT) and length 33.6?

Model SSVX F2 33-6
serial number FWD 777004

Thanks and greetings from THE NEDERLANDS. IS

Can  anyone assist me in identifying an older Freuhauf trailer. Van body type but NOT refrigerated
 (we purchased the trailer because it was sitting on a piece of property we wanted to purchase and the current owner did not want to move it) 

We were told this would be a great trailer to restore since body is in great shape.

Plate on front of trailer is all the info I could find as far as model etc...

Model   FFGT 5532
Serial    AV155460
lb       450000

We believe it's a mid 40's from pic I've found online...Has rounded front with Fruehauf logo and band around the top
Still on axle with spare tire; body in great shape with medal freuhauf molding on the front

I was able to get some Pic this weekend.....attached.

RB,

Your trailer was built in Ft. Wayne, Indiana in 1952. The range of

serial numbers that year started at FW72801 and ended with

FW86600.

On the model number SS usually means stainless steel, the next

number refers to the suspension, (GT55 is torsion bar)and

the last number is the length.

My trailer for instance is: PMGT55-31.5, FW57866

PM=Flatbed, GT55=Torsion bar suspension, 31.5=The length,

FW=Built in Fort Wayne, Indiana, 57866=sequential serial built in 

1950.

I hope that helps. 

 


1950 Freuhauf 32 ft. flatbed trailer, 1951 White WC22PLT Sleeper

I'm trying to track down the age of an old Fruehauf stainless steel van.  Model SS530; Serial FW73658.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing making Trailmobiles look cheap is the fact that they are. They are junk for new trailers.

Rick



I agree compared to the older Fruehauf's on the yard Fruehauf's hide their age very well.

Larry,

That's correct. They did a very nice job. 

Rick



Compared to the Trailmobiles that Gully runs, that new Fruehauf makes the Trailmobile look cheap.
