That would be one of the many go karts I have for sale.

 

I have two with the fiberglass bodies as you seen in the picture. Here is a few more pictures sorry for the quality as I just snapped them tonight.

The white one has a 5.5 horse Honda.

 

The burgandy is a 6.5 horse Honda.

 

These had been used in some go kart track and did have the metal bands around them but we took them off just never really needed to worry about banging into each other with us running these things around the house. We bought this a few years before my father past just to have a little fun while he still could.

Welcome to GTT. I am sorry for your loss. Please think long and hard about what you are parting with that was your fathers'. Will you regret it a few years from now? My father died almost forty years ago and I still kick myself for some of the things that I let go. Hope this all works out for you. Good Luck, Rick

It is life. We are all in this together. They are heirloom tractors that would be cool to hand down to your kids. BTW to learn more about the GTs that you have, you can download manuals from our Manuals Section. Let us know how you are doing and we answer questions. Good Luck, Rick

PS Tractor shows are alot of fun.

Hi,

Only you can answer the question of will you be better off by keeping everything that your dad had or will you be better off by selling some or all of the collection. Do you have the space to keep it. Will you have the time to devote to it?

Would you be better off with selecting the item that means the most to your memories and keeping that.

I just picked up a '48 chain steer Economy from a family that was making the hard decisions about what to keep/what to sell/what family members were going to receive what/

Good luck with your decision and I'm truly sorry for your loss.

Chuck
