Another one?

Gee Diane, How do you find those gems? You must be peeking in all the barns in Colorado and Texas. Ever come to the DFW area?

forgot to add...

"oldtrucksrule" had posted this...
I sent my trailer to Jimmy Cates at Twistedsilver.net he is responsible for the entire restoration. You can look at the 1948 Nolen link on his page to look at the progress.

I had an excellent frame on my project...otherwise, I would have checked this out. If you go the frame route...check him out.

Hello to Ivan if you see him.

Someone will be a very lucky owner when he is done with it.

Its not about which VIN's have been claimed. Its about what number yours was issued at the factory when completed. If your ID tag is missing, there may be another place it was stamped although I'm not all that familiar with the WeeWind's. Check the frame in front of the shell or the bumper. Sometimes the factory workers wrote on the back of the interior wood pieces before attaching them.

Good luck

Thanks, I plan on removing the paint from the frame in hopes of finding it . by claimed, I meant a list of owners attached to the currently known wee Wind serial numbers.
