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.
I am out there finding it so you don't have to .
