Trevor, we need some more pics, and from different angles than that one!
It does certainly look like it once had a body on it, with the side(I think they're called nerf bars) bars.

More pics needed indeed, and not crappy ones like JTSpeedDemon posts, you know, with all kinds of junk and debris in front of, on and around the kart....



EDIT: definitely looks like a promo kart that once carried a fiberglass body. Only built for parades, 10 MPH and parking in front of stores as an eye-catcher and point of interest.

Looking right behind the front right wheel in the picture, I can see I think what you're talking about with the rust.
Pretty crusty.

Trevor, it's a small possibility that you have a Bird/Phoenix Engineering kart kinda like mine.
The pedals, steering wheel, seat back shape, and the scrub brake system look similar if not identical to mine.

That tire pic is super helpful.....


I got a super duper smart phone with all the bells and whistles, but I don't surf DIY with it, HECK NO.
Tell your momma you want a laptop at least.


I think you overpaid for that kart. It was dead already.
