1938 Northwestern Model 561 V8-60 originally built in 1938 with a 1938 Ford V8-60 (60 hp) flathead (flat motor) engine, transmission and radiator. [They also came with International six cylinder flathead engines]. Transmission is one speed forward and a reverse. The exhaust system is twin GlasPak mufflers. The cab dimensions are approximately 5'w x 8'l x 8'h (it looks larger than it actually is, however it is large by 'little guy' Fairmount standards). The original 561 had a car weight of 2000 pounds with a maximum of 8000 pounds total gross operating weight. The present configuration should weigh about the same base weight as the original or lighter. The restoration / rebuild upgrade includes: new remotely operated, twin cylinder, hydraulic turntable / complete new aluminum cab & windows / twin water source space heaters / new bucket seats and black vinyl upholstery / new alternator (not generator) / new water pumps with electric radiator fan / Stewart Warner engine gauges / chrome air horns / NARCOA radio / 32 gallon gasoline fuel tank / built in battery maintenance charger / NARCOA regulation lights. Frame and rolling stock is in excellent condition. Seats three and rides six. It is not air conditioned, except by nature. However, it could be air conditioned. CURRENT STATUS: The original 'flat motor' engine has been removed from the car, disassembled, dipped and the block magnafluxed and is good. I made one run with the car and decided to rebuild the engine but for health reasons have put the project on hold. The seller, Jim Canavan, told me when I bought the car, that to his knowledge the engine had never been opened up. He was correct. It needs a total re-building. The original motor has operated for seventy years operating under daily work conditions. A new or rebuilt motor, with recreational use, should last indefinitely.
