Every time I see that sig pic of Midlife driving that Mustang go kart I wonder where I can get one. Does anyone know where someone can find one of those? Price range?

Ask Lee here:
http://www.jrcentral.com/index.html

He's a VMF'er too. I bought a NOS -67 body from him and my plan is to make a scale copy of my full size.

Originals are very pricey.

There is an electric powered 1967 Mustang JR on Ebay right now Here is the sale

This is actually the Coval version made by the company that bought out the Powercar company. The frame is different but the body is the same.

Of course if you want a 1965-66 Mustang JR I have the original factory body molds from the Powercar company. along with many other reproduction parts,
I have been making a new steering wheel mold this weekend

That eBay car is in rough shape.

Here's ours:


You can see what it used to look like here:

That's a good point, Jim. In fact, if you look closely, the engine has a centrifugal clutch driving just one wheel, really primitive. You would be better off just buying a body from Lee Exline and using off the shelf go kart drive train parts.

That's what I'll probably end up doing when I get to the point where I can afford one of those toys. Nothing wrong with hopping up a Mustang, even if it is only a scaled down one

You couldn't be more wrong. At the last Mustangs Plus display I attracted a dozen women, easily. Unfortunately, (well, fortunately, since the wife was there) they were all under ten years old and just wanted a ride in the car.

Wow - your car looks great - where did you find the body? I checked the link provided above but they only list 65-66 bodies. I would love a 1967 version.

Thanks!
Ryan

The '67's haven't been reproduced. Mine is one of the later Conval cars manufactured in the early '70's.

I really want to make a mustang golf cart, nothing like playing the links in style.

That'd be the ultimate hotness...

What would that be, 1/2 scale or just sectioned?
