" with original overhead valve motor "?? Nothing on the engine looks earlier than 1920. How can it be original to 1915???

I know. Shut up Sheldon!

Nice speedster engine however. And some good potential for a '15.

I really have little fondness for hucksters as they are appear *fake* except for some possible originals. However something about this one is appealing...it even appears real. Perhaps it is just because it is old and shows some age...and character. Love the engine...

What is a "huckster"? I`ve got my 1915 Depot Hack for sale (see classifdes) but the title says "1914 T T Huckster" Hope to get the title changed, soon---just not sure what is SHOULD be called....Heres a photo:

I believe "huckster" was a term for traveling sales or middleman. I think it also could have negative connotations, but not originally. "Huckster" wagons and trucks were used by hucksters to carry their wares (again, I think).

Rob should know what a 'Huckster' is. He was born in Nebraska and went to school there. I think I have it right. Everyone from Nebraska is a 'Corn Huckster'.

The Huckster and Depot Hack were similar body configurations. If the rear portion of the body has seats or benches and is intended for hauling passengers, it's a Hack. If the rear portion is intended to haul goods of some kind, it's an Express Delivery to most of the body makers. Those also were nicknamed "Hucksters" because they often were used to haul produce from farms to town for sale. Just park the truck on a main street and sell your produce out of the back.

Herb, you're right but "huckster" is more fun. Especially when you consider he's talking to Rob "Speedy" Heyen. Okay, enough of that. It's time to "gopher" some fuel for the speedster.

Mike

You are right. We need to gopher a ride together so we can badger a few hucksters or huckeyes down there in Nebraska and Iowa.
