I had a wildcat as a kid. It even had the temperamental McCulloch engine. Do they ever come up for sale? What kind of money do they fetch? (McColloch not necessary)

they show up every now and then.. but rarely..

the last I've seen had an asking price (nicely restored with a westbend 700)
of US $4200
and IIRC a highest bid of not even $2000 (reserve not met)

*shrugs*

So yeah I guess if you're lucky you may find one, but I don't think it's going to be a cheap at all
That is if you don't find one where the seller has no clue about make and model of course


[EDIT]
on the other hand this (no engine, good shape/unrestored)
http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedi...dcat-176583218
was sold for €431.91 (~ US$ 540)

My dad and I cant even remember what happened to that old kart. Wish I still had it now. When I was a 75 lb kid that thing was faster than crap. I could gas it and leave 20 ft black marks on the concrete.

I'm waiting on the owner to contact me, to see if its still for sale..... IIRC, its complete,minus engine, and needs TLC.... If you got some elbow grease laying around , might as well pull that out too..... LOL
