JJ31,

I'm building a Wagon Works Huckster Van myself and would like to see some pictures of your Van.

I'm impressed that someone knows what a Boeing N2S-3 is! It may be awhile before it's flyable. I'm still restoring it.

HarveyH, you can see my Huckster Van and Pickup in my Album page. I can't figure out how to post one here.

Here's your pix



Any picture on the 'net (including your album) you can put into a post
First right click any pix. See "properties." Then "copy" the properties, including the http and whatever the ending is (usually jpg.)

Then go to "Reply to thread - Advanced" however you get there.

Above the text box there is an icon that looks like a yellow postcard (yunno, showing a mountain and like a postage stamp?)

You then left click the icon, then when it prompts, you right click paste the properties of your desired pix into the line it gives you. Then left click press OK.

The pix should appear henceforth above or below your text. You can move the text around it to make it appear as you want.

Hope this helps. If this won't work for you I know another way that uses Img commands - but does the same thing.

Thank you Joe. That is my Wagon Works body I made on a 31 chassis. I'll try to attach the pic of the 1950 Mechanix Illustrated Pickup/Wagon here.

Getting closer. Choose the "big" pix when you take on the properties. You should be able to "edit" your previous post.

I found this at a license plate show yesterday. Too bad the year isn't '30 or '31, but it's still going on the tailgate of my Huckster when I ever get it done.

I never saw such a plate before. That is neat.

I restored a 1928 Model A Huckster years ago. Unlike the "woody" look of many Hucksters this one was fully skinned in metal and painted. I have attached a picture and a drawing that shows the "A" pillar and cowl. There was a metal trim piece that exactly matched the curve of the cowl and masked the joint. Here is a link to a drop box album with many pictures of the restoration.
https://www.dropbox.com/sc/d8w9utonz...ktpDdlPD29hjJa
I made a full set of drawings of the body as I took it apart (The only way I'd be able to get it back together!) They are not "plans". They are just detailed measured exploded views of every sub assembly. Let me know if they can be of any help.

Nice job on this huckster. Do you still own it?

No, unfortunately. I wish I did! I sold it to Progresso Foods. They added vegetable racks in the back and used it in their TV commercials. I often wonder what became of it.

I have updated my dropbox album to include all the drawings of the 1928 Model A Huckster I restored. I hope they are a help to those building their own Hucksters.

Here is the new link:

Looks great Tom. Welcome to he group.

Just a question. Are you going to put a bumper on the bake of your rig? I found out the hard way that it was a good idea. Of course this was me but one of the first things I did when I finished mine was to back it into my shop door frame and messed up the wood somewhat. Put a bumper on it a short time later.

Have fun Tom. My son and I are taking our huckster and coupe to the Concours d'Elegance at Forest Grove Oregon tomorrow. This is one of the best cars shows here in the Northwest. I don't expect to get any awards for our rigs but it is a fun show to go to and see all the classic cars. Some of these rigs are in the million $ range. Plus a person gets free admission if they enter their car. So a person can have fun with their rigs in many ways.

The way I understand it, not quite a "huckster" but sounds like a very expensive BJ item. Still a great looking rig and sounds like a great buy..
