Westmont Golf Buggy, which were built in Madison, Wisconsin (can you tell we like Wisconsin built things) in 1959-1963. Has a 4 cylinder gas engine in it. Not running and had been sitting outside for quite some time. Was saved from the scrapyard once and we saved it once again today. Not much information on these things though.

Nice little Buggy! That's cool! I really like that little 4 cyl gas engine! Just think if you don't fix it this year, you could always till up the weeds on the floor boards and plant a garden. :laughingteeth:

Getting it running will be the goal. The engine moves a little, but Adam wants to take the head off and give it a good look. He thinks the transmission is stuck, but at least it is stuck in neutral. Some information I have found says 45 mph is the top speed. Funny thing is there is a bolted bracket so that the cart cannot be shifted into 3rd gear so that it wouldn't go that fast. Interesting!

Nice save Michelle that is a unique piece for sure. I think that would be frowned upon on most any golf course I've been to. I can just imagine Kathy flooring it and us bouncing all over the course. Keep us posted on your progress. NEAT!!

We picked this up from a friend down the road. He saved three of these from the scrapyard. He still has one more which we may try to get for parts. The third eventually made its way back to the scrap yard. Ours has handle bars and the other one has a steering wheel.

I really took it for the engine. I always try to fix something the way it was ment to be but if not I bought it for the motor with could be put into something else.

I agree with you on that, I would have done the same thing. I would love to find a 4 cyl that is that small. So the NA62 is what you found for an engine number so far?
