  1. Hello Ben,

    I have restored the "Early Budge Days" FWD HAR-1 discussed on this site. The truck was purchased by collector Frank Buck from Pennsylvania here in the US in the late 1980's. I purchased the HAR from Kevin Kronlund in Wisconsin a year ago last January. That is all the history I know of her. I am completing the wiring tomorrow; wiring replicated by Joe Hall, Vintage Wiring of Maine. I am looking for reproduction data plates for this truck, the only non-original item not present on this truck; do you have a source for repro plates? Feel free to contact me with any questions- history concerning this truck. I think I have the only known restored example here in the states. How many are there in Europe? How long did it take to restore your example? What parts contacts did you use? Are BZ engine parts available over there? Hard to find over here in the States. I will be happy to forward pictures to you if interested. Hope to hear back from you in the near future. All the best and congratulations on the completion of your HAR-1; Awesome truck you restored. All the best! David Firstman
