Looking at buying a Trailer but there is no year on the title. The serial  number is FWF424401 but i believe its late 60'/early 70's.

If anyone can help i would appreciate it

I am trying to verify the year of manufacture of my Fruehauf semi trailer. I am told it is 1932. The numbers on the tag are T4661, F1432(Model?), and C9249(Serial?).

It was built by Fruehauf Traler Company of California. Any help would be appreciated.


Did you ever find out what year your trailer is Farmer Giles? I have a Model CFFA-521-T with Serial #C-27549 (so, our serial numbers are very close!) I am also trying to find out what year ours is....
