What was that Cushman used for originally?
It's actually a Westcoaster & not a Cushman. It was a Post Office delivery truck in Salt Lake. I found it in a field where it has been for 10+ years.
Oh, you're right, the garbage company here in town has a ton of Cushmans for garbage pickup assistance to the big trucks, so I just say 'Cushman' out of reflex. For having sat in a field for a decade, it looks in great condition.
Took 3 years to get it to look this good. New tires/glass/electrical/paint etc. Surprising- new gas & battery & it started!
Wonders will never cease!
I have a 1969 Harley Davidson two stroke three wheel golf cart that acts the same way, it can sit for a couple years and it still starts
My Christmas present to me. (old gauges had problems). Now to finish wiring and install them next time I'm in Utah.
That certainly 'goes' with your rig. What are you gonna set redline to?
Got the new gauges installed. & my son-in-law made me a sign to hang in the garage-represents the 3 cars I currently own and the TR3 that was my first car. The white box in the middle is the mock up for a console.
That looks interesting....
But you didn't answer my previous question: what RPM will you be setting redline?
Not worried about redline until I get her on the road to see how she performs.
I see SpeedHut gauges! I got some for Midnight with the Black Friday sale. Installed them today, very happy!
Ah yes. Speedhut. Very happy with them & their service. I broke a part of the wiring harness. I even tried to pay for the part but they sent it out under warranty.
First time out of the garage in 2 years! & under it's own power.
Truck's looking good, are they 14 or 15 ARE's?
Rims are 15". Went to 15 when I added disc brakes to the front.
They are Torq-Thrust D's, are they not?
Correct. Purchased the first one from Summit Racing-to test the fit. Then bought 3 & tires from Discount Tire. They matched Summit's price.
Very cool. IMHO, the best retro wheels for any '60s car.
