Here's one I never seen or heard of.  Only 12 were made for Bolens in 1969.  ???

That's the Pengor Penguin.

 

There was some discussion on one of the forums about that rascal.

 

Supposedly Bolens did have some interest in marketing them, but decided not to do so.

From what I have heard about these somewhere around 25 were made like Jerome said but after less than a month they were all recalled and ordered to be destroyed someone got killed on one. They were all sent to a guy to be destroyed some survived I got pictures of 3-4 complete units lined up had been setting outside that's where the one pictured came from that one was the nicest of the bunch. Same guy had several cut up ones on the property and even converted one or two of them into dune buggies. The Bolens marketed ones had a large Bolens decal on each side of the car I know of one complete unit in Canada as well. I could buy one of these but rather spend my money on a golf cart to ride around on at the shows easier to get on and off than climbing into the little car! Lol

I had never heard of or seen one of these little contrivances, so when I found one on CL in Wisconsin, I Googled it and came across this thread. Someone could rescue this rare bird for a mere $1500.

There was no mention of the price being negotiable, but it may be worth asking.
