This is a Restoration Project with extra parts and it is currently listed for sale at auction on Ebay. Any offers must beat the high bid. I will send you the link if you can not find it yourself.
This rare 3 wheeled vehicle is a 1965 Westcoaster Mailster model 800. It was manufactured by the Westcoast Machinery Co. in Stockton, California. This vehicle was used by the US Postal Service for a number of years in the 1960's and 70's. It has an all fiberglass body and is powered by an 18 h.p. Onan 2-cylinder gas engine. One engine is essentially new as the old heads, manifolds, etc. were installed on a new short block. It has zero hours as it has not been fully assembled yet or started. It is street legal, complete with a title. I acquired two of them with hopes to restore one so I have many extra parts form the second unit (except for the body itself) and I have 2 copies each of the parts manual & maintenance manual, one of wich was issued before Otis Elevator Co. purchased the company. It is still for sale if you are reading this so don't ask. I will delete when sold.
