1970 truckster ?

I have been eyeballin this lil truck for a couple of years. It was down a back road on the way out to my house and it seemed every time I drove by with my girlfriend id tell her just how cool it would be to have one. Two days ago she comes home and lets me know she stopped and talked the guy into letting me tow it away for $100! Its been sitting forever in the same spot and hasn’t ran in ten years. I got it home about 5:30 yesterday evening and was taking trial laps around the house by 9pm! :0)
I am about to fill out lein sale paperwork and need to know what make, model, and year this thing is. I’ve got a vin of 898403-7010. From my research I think I have a 1970 Cushman Truckster. Can anyone get more detailed than that for me? I’ve seen ‘sub’models of 725 or 785 or Sportsman or Westcoaster….. what is mine?
And, does anybody have a maintence manual in pdf. for me? Please. :0)
Grants Pass, Oregon
Btw. It has a black and yellow California licence plate and the guy I picked it up from said it was from a hospital in glendale California.

    I got it running awesome for just a bit but then started seeming like I was running out of fuel with like 4 gallons in the tank. I was taking the bolt of the float to check for fuel and it snapped in half!
    This is the needle and seat right?
    So where do I go to get JUST a needle and seat, (#34), for a zenith 1408 carb?
