Default Manco Indy kart????

No clue any thing about besides 5hp briggs and stratton A SICK exhaust coming out the sides like a Nascar. Golf cart tires? And it is made by manco so I don't know anything about it or if the engine is original...

Looks like a concession kart to me. Is that Briggs better than the last one cylinder wise?

Not a concession kart, it is an Indy style missing the fiberglass body, looks manco as well. Pedals look like they may have been replaced.

Probably a good idea.

IDK if that's an Indy at all..
the Indys all had the top bar to mount the wing AFAIK.
(yours might have been cut)

like you see on mine or Jonny's (713/715)
here
Jonny's had a very similar front bumper..
neither has outriggers

the Stock car (723/725)
had outriggers (one single bent tube though)

And albeit I cannot find one with a front bumper,
I'm more inclined to say it was a Stock Car
(maybe the later stingray corvette body?... or some unknown to me bodied Manco)

Or maybe it's something made by Manco For Sears exclusively again with a totally different body style *shrugs*

Anyways, as is it looks a bit crowded with all the flat bars sticking out,
So it needs a body or a shave IMHO..

yes I see it doesn't..
but it appears it had one (cut tubes near the tabs on the rear end)
the flat bar [all around] appear to be a previous user addition to me.
No rounded corners; which is usually a good sign of bad craftmanship
compare it with the throtttle attachment right behind the seat..
that's original flat bar and has rounded edges.

But it's really hard to tell..

I think I'd cut it back to a 713 style if you don't have a body to go with it...
maybe with but likely without front bumper
(to save more weight and remove the remaining flat bar up front)

And go from there
