I have seen a lot of them. Where we on live on the east coast, a lot of police departments use them in the summer to easily get in and out of tight spots and ride up on the board walk. I bet some of the towns still use them.

The pickups are small, not much bigger than a John Deere gator.

Yes, The equipment dealer I worked for about 10 years ago was a cushman dealer. I hated the stupid things. They were very good when they worked, but could be troublesome when they're broke. Depending on age parts can be an issue, so make sure you have a dealer nearby.

That looks pretty good.

I recall the old postal delivery vehicle with fabric doors in SoCal - probably a 1960's model. I thought that was the coolest job ever. I think they were noisy and stinky even back then.

We scavenged 2 for work, a little tinkering and both run strong and reliable. Parts available on line, both of ours have OMC engines.
