I have a 1923 huckster looking for a new home. The only reason im selling it is that my fleet has grown and I cant possibly enjoy all of them at once so this one needs to go. I would rather see someone else enjoy it rather than haven it sit in the garage.
it was restored in the 60's I believe it is a reporoduction body but it does have a babcock truck tag on the firewall. I was never able to authenticate it. I have only seen 3 other bodies identical to this one in the last 20 years.
The engine runs strong but has not been restored. We opened up the bottom end and cleaned and checked out the babbit, but it has never been restored since the 60's. It has minor rust and old paint but still is very respectable and turns heads everywhere you go. It has a distributern on it but the mag post does put out some voltage. I never switched it back to coils because it runs so good the way it is. It has new Rebuilt carburetor, generator, exhaust,new plug wires, old t driver tires but never run many miles so they still have knubs on them.
lots of neat accessories like push klaxon horn, spot light mirror combo, and oil and water cans NOS.
The only thing this truck may need is I have never opened up the rear end I have had no issues with it but cant tell you if it has Babbitt or bronze thrust washers in it, and the ignition switch was touchy so I ran a jumper wire across the back to make it reliable. It should come apart and be rebuilt if you want to do any serious touring.
All in all a very nice truck.
PM me for more info or more pics I also have video of it running at speed down the road.
I am asking $8000 or best offer to new good home.
