Several years ago I rescued from a field here in West Texas a late seventies or early eighties, CUSHMAN 3 Wheel Turf Truckster, Model 880718, OMC Model M218 Twin Cylinder Engine, Pickup with 3 Speed Forward & 1 Reverse plus Auxiliary Transmission with Ultra-Low Gear Range for Heavy Duty Applications.
It has Engine Serial Number 53015 on the flat surface of the crankcase below & to the rear of the dipstick opening.
Engine Model Number, Model M218, SPEC NO. 161029 is on the engine name plate on the engine fan housing.
Vehicle Model Number 880718 & Modification #528 is on the left side of the main frame ahead of the rear wheel.
Vehicle Serial Number 248207 is on the left frame member below front of floorboard.
Pictures are available via EMAIL upon request.
#1: With the information I have provided can you determine the year of this Truckster?________________
The original owner did not have a title and he did not remember what year he purchased it except that he bought it new and used it on his ranch.
The original owner has passed away.
#2: I am interested in divesting myself of this Truckster as I have too many other projects ongoing including the following restorations:
- 1959 Cushman Eagle, Restoration completed.
- 1980n Vespa P200e, Restoration almost complete.
- 1954 NSU Lambretta 125 Electric Start, 178 original miles, Restoration starting.
Do you know of anyone that might be interested in purchasing this Truckster for purposes of restoration?
Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you about this.
