Vintage Golf Cart Popularity
If you are looking into purchasing a golf cart or looking for your next project maybe a vintage golf cart is it? if you are anything like Pete or myself cool stuff just gets your heart pounding. I mean – cool to us is anything with an engine that goes fast ” The faster the better”, cars, boats, motorcycles and yes golf carts…. We never guessed we would ever drive a golf cart because we are not golfers but gearheads. Yet here we are building, driving, racing and wrenching on them more and more… crazy how life takes us down roads less traveled.
Anyhow, the vintage stuff is becoming more popular only because of the guys like us that want something different. Outside the norm – Club Car, Ezgo, Yamaha – yea… yea… yea… We sell tons of parts and accessories for all the new stuff, but we also offer quite a bit of parts for the old stuff as well. And if we do not there are other companies that offer them as well. So you can rebuild and restore a vintage golf cart with relative ease knowing alot of the parts you will need are readily available. Vintage Gas Golf Carts are a little harder to find parts sometimes, but only the rare ones… Columbia Par Car Golf Carts, Harley Davidson Golf Carts are still easy to find stuff for the old 2 cycle gas engines from the early 1960’s thru the 1990’s… As for the electric stuff, man if you can find a solid chassis and cart with good bones and body panels… go for it! all the electric stuff can be upgraded… Think resto-mod! But for a golf cart not your classic or vintage Chevy or Ford!
Cool Looking Vintage Golf Carts
If you are shaking your head saying to yourself a cool looking golf cart? Really? These guys are nuts… Just checkout some of these pictures of cool looking classic and vintage golf carts. Ok.. so we agree not all of them are not so practical but that is what makes them cool…. Who ever said a 1966 Shelby Cobra was practical? But cool… Hell yea! Heck if you have one you want to share with us.. just comment on this post and attach a photo or two below… Even if you are looking to sell one stick it on there maybe someone will see it and buy. Nothing lasts forever …right! I am becoming more and more like Pete these days… I asked him once ” Pete… What is your favorite car? He said the next one! I am like ok… What is it? He says… ” I don’t know!” I love them all and way to many cars I would still like to play with and drive or enjoy… Once I am done working on one or restoring I drive it a few times and have some fun with it then sell it – just to buy another fixer… Ah some I have kept but very few compared to what I have owned over the years… These vintage golf carts are the same thing… I just like to bring things back to life or their former glory. I like to make things better…
Vintage Golf Cart Values
The value of something like a classic car or vintage golf cart is really very weird. It is all relative to what someone is willing to pay for it. Somethings like cars or motorcycles have a pretty solid base because of the popularity and following over the century but a golf cart or quirky things like that have value and we have seen them go for thousands more than when they where new…. Heck, someone just sold a Vintage Major League Baseball Support Vehicle ( The Bull-Pens Three Wheeler Harley Davidson Golf Cart) for like $14,000.00
Craziness huh? Not really… Here are a few other well noted sales over the last decade.
