I bought a fixer upper Struck mini beep today. It is missing some parts that I need to find or have made. I took lots of photos to try to see what's missing on mine. Mine seems to have a different grille and was never yellow. I cannot locate any yellow paint on the body. If anyone has one that could let me know what's missing that would be great. Thanks Dave

Great find! Don't know much about these, so I can't help determine what parts are missing. Good luck with restoring it!

Can't help you at all, but that is a very interesting find. Have fun fixing up.

I'm Beep stupid too but that is one cute machine. From the corrosion it almost looks like it spent it's life near the coast or very humid environment. Looks to be mostly on the surface.

Congrats!!! :thumbs:

Don't know much about them, but the only pictures I've seen of them were red. ~~ Lowell

I stand corrected (not the first time), the Roof Palamino like the one below is what I've seen!

Image005_0.jpg Image184.jpg It kind of looks like a ROOF PALAMINO from the mid 60's...

If you were closer, I'd try to talk you out of it. That is pretty neat! Great score!

Thanks for the comments...I was told by the seller only 200 or less were manufactured by Struck. I am thinking about painting it Army green.

That really looks like a peerless tranny in places. I think one of their brake systems would work on that shaft.

What engine did it have originally?

It does have two peerless 2338 transmissions. It came with a vertical 7hp Tecumseh engine.

I didn't see that earlier, but it's 4 wheel drive and pivots in the center of the body, very cool.

The C.F. Struck corp. is still in business and back then everything they made was available as a kit OR as plans to build your own. They will be able to get you the original plans which will have blueprints and assembly instructions. Theoretically you can stiil build one from scratch with the plans, so duplicating a few missing pieces should be a walk in the park if you got the sheetmetal and transaxles. I used their plans to help fix some wore out parts on my struck dozer from the same era. Good luck! And post pics of your progress.
