You may well shoot me for this but you could always 'rod the A - a 12v alternator should be easy to find for a Cleveland V8

Use 6 volt bulbs in the trailer lamps with a voltage drop device in line so the lamps can be used with an old car, or modern one.
The charging of the trailers battery can be solved by running a pair of 6 volt golf cart batteries in series.
The model A can charge with 6 volts, and the modern car can charge with 12 (switched of course).
6 volt bulbs don't require a special socket in general.
There are some older 6 volt sockets that you'd be hard pressed to find a 12 volt bulb for...but a modern tail light fixture will accept a 12 or 6 volt bulb.
