I learned something new today after contacting a vendor with an impeccable reputation for the very best in reproduction data plates for military vehicles and also our Bantam T3-C Civilian Trailers.
Robert de Ruyter of "Dataplates4u" in the Netherlands described to me how the original Bantam T3-C trailer data plates were derived from cut down "Bantam T-3 Military Trailers" produced in WWII.
My guess is the Military T-3 data plates were probably surplus after the war just like the parts used on the early T3-C trailers and used up until supplies were exhausted.
If your data plate is in need of replacement or repair please contact Robert and let him know you learned of his "Outstanding Workmanship" here on:
