I won a cart from McDonalds at the county fair when I was a kid. Had a AMC Gremlin body. Broke my leg on that damn thing.

My brother Jim owned that particular kart body a while back. When he had it the body was still in need of repair. He would have sold it from our house in Honey Brook or Coatesville.

Bump for Sam . <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: C1SS396</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Does anybody have or remember any information about the Jungle Jim and Bill Grumpy Jenkins giveaway go-karts from around 1974 era? Today I just picked up a vintage Vega go-kart locally. Unfortunately the body has been repainted several times, but from what I can determine it was molded in Hugger Orange. I have identified the chassis as being the correct Rupp chassis which is correct for the giveaway karts.

Where I live and where the go-kart was bought (West Chester, PA) is less than 15 minutes from Jungle Jim's old house and about the same from Grumpy's shop. The guy I bought it from said the motor he took off of it had a number 7 on it. Whether it is or not, I thought it was a cool piece so hope you guys enjoy it.

Ive got one of the Jungle Jim go carts. Jungle Pam and his son signed it for the guy I bought it from. Its very cool. Looking forward to showing it in the back of my 60 Nomad sometime this year.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Fast67VelleN2O</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I has go kart? </div></div>

picked up this Mercedes Benz &quot;jeep bodied&quot; cart with a 2spd trans and a 2.5 hp. It didn't take long to blow it up and then back half it, add an 11hp and cut the rear drive from a 6&quot; sprocket to a 2&quot;, hence appropriately nick-named Death Mobile. the kid added an extra kill switch but says it still needs better brakes before he drives it again!
