I bought this Hackney from an antiques dealer in Wilson NC. It was cool to see it and after looking at it for a while, struck a deal and put it on layaway payments. It has a 1hp engine installed, so I would assume that it was strictly a kids car and not able to pull an adult around fast enough. I have no idea how long it has been this way but it's probably been customized more than 10 yrs ago as that's how long i believe I have had it. Sorry for the sideways pics, I think I can adjust them to be horizontal.
