    This is the trailer unit for the XM384 3/4-Ton, 8x8 cargo truck. The truck was designed and built, based on the Ford M151 MUTT (there was also a 1/2-ton 6x6 version, the XM408, of which about four were built and tested). Neither vehicle went into mass production.

    There was only one XM384 constructed, along with this trailer. The truck itself was converted into an amphibious test version so it's most likely that the trailer is the only one in existence.

    Default What you Value a one of a kind prototype trailer at?

    I just learned that my odd looking aluminum military trailer is a one of a kind experimental trailer that was built for the XM384 at the Detroit Arsenal in 1957.
    What would you say its worth? I may look at donateing it to a museum. (In a few years)

    At least a Gazzillion dollars.

    Who knows the value. I would say at least $1000. Now if you had the jeep to go along with it..................

    For a Gazzillion dollars I'd sell anything..

    But seriously I'd sell for a decent price. I would give it up to add to my child's college fund.
    I may have it appraised.

    Good luck finding a museum that wants it. Problem is, with display space at a premium, most museums do not want prototypes that did not enter development. The only story the trailer tells is what cool things were under development in the trailer dept at TACOM in the late 50's.

    The bad thing is that one-off or rare military vehicles really don't bring a lot of cash.

    If you know how much it weighs, you can figure out the minimum $ it's worth.
