Husqvarna 360cc Cross – 1966

This special Husqvarna, Serial #66939 is one of only ten, 1966 Husqvarna 360cc Cross’s imported into the United States. It was only the second one delivered to Edison Dye in San Diego on July 6th, 1966 and was sold to Hertting’s Triumph Sales in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (see original sales invoice) a month later.

It was hoped that the more powerful 360cc Husky would help the American racers in beating the Europeans (i.e. Torsten Hallman) at their own game.
Unfortunately, the 360 was only slightly faster than the 250 Husky and less reliable.

The previous owner, Brian Grade had this machine restored by John LeFebre to as new condition. This motorcycle may possibly be the only 1966 360cc know to exist in the United States today.
