WOW! I last saw this thing three years ago, it vanished the day I was gonna buy it. Well.. she returns, and not far from where I last saw her! It's a 1957 Mid;and 'Bull-Pup' with a Briggs model 19 engine. It goes as low as 0.5MPH, and as high as 17, and maybe faster if I could get it running better. This things awesome! Guy was asking 150, but the shifter was jammed and without my asking, he offered 75. SOLD! Never heard of another, cant find any info on them. It has some of the strangest designs in it.. like an 'E' shift pattern..! It has the fatal issue of a faulty coil, which is common on early 19's. I'm going to put a car coil and battery on it.. easier then messing with the trouble-prone 19-series coils. This thing is LONG! The hood tip is just over 7' from the seat. The throttle control is Model T style, a cast iron lever with bellcranks. Video to come soon. Its a real shame the previous-previous owner buggererd up the paint.. because it was apparently fine. It was once metallic green and cream white.. Time for a project!
