-796 Healey Sports Boat on Trailer (1960-62)

This post has been transfered from the post "Wheel variations".

There have been at least two variations of the 796 Trailer for the Healey Sport Boat.

The one on the left is the common one with a third wheel at the front. The one on the right is much rarer and on this the front 'jockey wheel' has been replaced with a skid.

I suspect that this was towards the end of the production and was done as a cost cutting exercise.

Re : -796 Healey Sports Boat on Trailer (1960-62)

David,

In fact there are nine variations of the trailer.

1) With three smooth grey wheels and riveted tin plate tow bar.
2) With smooth grey main wheels, treaded grey jockey wheel and riveted tin plate tow bar.
3) With three treaded grey wheels and riveted tin plate tow bar.
4) With three black wheels and riveted tin plate tow bar.
5) With three black wheels and riveted unpainted tin plate tow bar.
6) With three black treaded wheels and tow bar cast with the trailer. As on david's picture above.
7) With two black treaded wheels and tow bar cast with the trailer. As on david's picture above.
8) With two grey smooth wheels and tow bar cast with the trailer.
9) With two grey treaded wheels and tow bar cast with the trailer.

Although the variation 2 with grey treaded wheels is shown on the July 1961 issue of the M.M., I have not yet seen one. Have you ?

About 749,650 minutes later, and we are still waiting for those two more images you mentioned back in November 2014!  Any chance of these and any other images of the trailer that you may have found during the intervening period to be added to this topic?wink
