    Mailster 3-wheeled mail-delivering vehicles - photos

    Mailster 3-wheeled mail delivery vehicles used in the 1950s and 1960s. Decent on flat terrain and in warm climates, but eventually replaced by Jeeps. Anyone ever get their mail delivered in one of these?

    Those were made by Cushman weren't they? They are (were) used for parking enforcement in larger cities.

    My dad had a 3 wheel Cushman like that except it was open with a pickup bed. That little machine got used for all kinds of chores at his farm because it was reliable, could tote a pretty good load and it could get into places that a pickup couldn't.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
