New to the forum, found you guys doing a search for more information on this very Crosley I saw on Craigslist. I Manage a Nursery (Trees & Stone not Kids) and have been looking for a "Golf Cart" for a while now. Came across this Crosley last night and absolutely fell in love with the look. I can operate almost anything but never really understood the inner working of it and was hoping you guys would help answer some questions about it before I drove 4hr (one way) to look at it. My questions are as follows:
1) What do you think it's operating speed is? I have no intentions of drag racing through the plant rows but it would not be practical if it drove slower then you could walk it. I would think 5 mph would be a minimum but 7-10 mph would be better.
2) Do you think it would have sufficient power to pull a loaded tracking trailer such as this http://www.bordercon...-trailer-6-x-12?
3) As I mentioned I am not very mechanical would I just be getting myself in to a nightmare with this thing as far as reliability? It's cheap enough that I wouldn't mind putting some work in to it but it dose me no good if I won't be able to rely on it most of the time.
4) Any idea what Crosley it was made from and what parts left on it actuality came off that vehicle?
I just love old vehicles/equipment and would be a lot more fun to drive this fascination around the yard then a preppy Golf Cart. Your thought and opinions are welcomed and appreciated.
Thank You in advance.
