Default Hi, been awhile. Id on this?

I have run across this three wheeler truckster and I can't seem to find what it is. All I know is that it has an onon performer 20 engine that at least needs the carb cleaned, and some shoddy fabrication work. Would anyone know what it is?

well I can see the MFG name on the plate... (you cut it off so we can't read ...)
but you know the name and the model number..
and frankly I'm a bit curious, why you need us to read the plate you 'mostly' provided

'sid

ps to me it looks to be an EZ-Go of sorts
[EDIT]
waaaaait.. that cutoff name on the plate...
JACOBSEN ??

Other than different paint, it looks like this one. https://www.motorsportsuniverse.com/...ility-vehicles

Nono, the plate is in an okay spot to take a picture of you just cut something important off ...
and it DOES say Jacobsen, so people on reddit either didn't have that plate pic to go by,
or just suck at reading/checking

it says JACOBSEN TEXTRON to be precise so it's past 1975 (when Textron bought Jacobsen)
How I know..

looks familiar?
See, to me too.
and yes a slightly different model obviously.. still the same plate manufacturer etc..
soo Jacobsen 2015 (model, not year!)

Sorry sid I forgot how much time and experience you put into your posts, you are right and I have since found that the year is roughly 1993 to 1995 I'm sticking 93 cause that will suit me better later of that later happens.

Just guessing here,
but chances are the MFG Code is plant/week/year
so I'm guessing 13th week (april) in 1995
since if it'd be Vin-coded year instead.. it'd be from 1987 (H)
