This wagon box must have spent nearly itís entire life in a shed as it is in remarkably good condition. Any guesses on how old this might be?

1370rod, This is a topic I have been interested in for awhile. I have brouchures, parts books, manuals, but one thing Minnesota didn't do on the paper materials was to date them as the big implement companies did. The old parts books have dates of production, but when it comes to wagons and boxes it is non-existing. After going through my stuff, my best estimate is the flare wagon you have in picture, #130, and the #125 were made in the mid/late 60s up to the late 1970s. I would love to know more specific dates I just haven't come across that one piece that has dates. I have the #130 flare wagon, 1062 barge box, 1262 barge box, and 1472 barge box that MN made. I need to find a #125 for the complete collection.

I have had a couple 250 orange Minnesota gravity boxes for a while. They suck. They donít have a very steep angle, they said they painted with Slip Plate and so everything slides out. Well, probably not at all after the first year anyhow.... I swore Iíd never buy another Minnesota wagon.

So, guess what I pulled home last month?

Dad bought a couple just like that from Collins in Zumbrota MN late in 78. Made in Stillwater MN at the prison factory since closed down.

The State Prison in Fort Madison, Iowa did some sort of manufacturing, can't remember what, but I had a delivery there one day. Had to show my license to get inside the prison, the dock building was right inside the gate, I opened my doors and backed into the dock. Grabbed the paperwork and went up onto the dock. As soon as I got there the guard comes over and tells me to watch my back, don't get more than a couple steps away from him. Yep, about then I'm feeling REAL good about this delivery stop. They got their skid of stuff, signed my paperwork! I pulled away from the dock, checked the trailer for stray passengers, and slammed the doors.
