Found this today.
Here's what the owner said: "Go Kart for sale runs good but needs someone who can fix the brake"
Very specific. :p
They're asking $500 for it, but if it really does run well except the brake. then I'd say it's worth it!
Who needs brakes anyway? They just slow you down... :roflol:
Granted, it does have a Tecumseh it looks like, but it's also got a super cool Plymouth Prowler body, a torque converter, and electric start, because you can see a battery next to the seat, which must be for e-start.
Cool kart, I'm just short on money, as always.:lolgoku:

That is a pretty cool promo kart.

I like the old roadster style bodies too. If you just won the lottery, would you buy that JT?

If I just won the lottery, I would go rethink my life. :roflol:
If I had the money, I would definitely buy that!
I think bodied karts are totally sick!

The body work seems to be pretty good. But could be a basket case in person.

:iagree:
The PO of my kart basically said I could put on a fuel line and a pillow for a seat bottom and go for a ride.
Most certainly not the case. :mad:

Mnts of the farthest NE TN you can go
Back in 96/97 dad and I took the 36 down to the grand rod run in Gatlinburg TN, they had a purple on as a display. Brand new, never seen and guess what?

Some idiot actually screwed a 2-1/2 in chrome tach on top of the console with wood screws...we where like WOW...what losers :ack2:

Makes about as much sense as foot tall spoilers on little import "fart cars" with lots of extra subwoofers. *Puzzled Shrug* :huh:

never liked the prowler...

but the same company who made that made some other (much nicer) bodies too
a general lee for example ;)
(granted the red flag raises a red flag for very good reason... still a tv show I enjoyed watching back in the days and the kart roof is non existent so I say it's politically correct enough with just the "01" :D)

And what I like best:
the AC Cobra :D

So chances are you can just slap on another body from them
(promokartsusa was the mfg IMHO)
