Tuffy model

Hello y'all, thanks for the acceptance into the forum, I love reading information and learning about the classics out there. I'm currently getting ours going and working on a remodel of it. The wife and I are excited to get it on the road and use it. Maybe some of you all can tell me a little more about it. It's a gem, we're gonna have fun with it. This thing sat in a field for 12 yrs, or so, the wife and I contacted the owner, looked it over and bought it without being able to start it. I tinkered with it for a few days, taking my time and repairing a few things, rebuilt the carb, replaced manual fuel pump, repaired some wiring and put a battery on her. Turned it over a bit, introduced some fuel and bam, she was purring like a kitten. Moved it over, aired up the tires, came back the next day and drove it home 65 miles. Time for a tune up and some upgrades! I sure would love to learn more about it, like how many were made, where was it made, ... it's quite unique.

Congratulations on your new project. The first thing to do now that you have it running is replace the tires. They will be near their load limit, and they are at least 12 years old. Way past time to change them out.
