Default Corvette Go-Kart Body

Are you looking for something on a smaller scale? This is the ideal item for that special "little someone", or even those "big kids". What you see pictured here is a fiberglass 1958-1960 style Corvette Go-Kart body, hand crafted by the same people who make the real thing. This gelcoated and ready to paint body fits on a standard 45" wheelbased Go-Kart chassis.

Mounting kit is not included.

Cool!

I have always felt C1,C2s were just big Go-Karts with fiberglass bodies. Not any safer.

OK, I couldn't find any info on your website, so, this is a fiberglass body, right? Press molded or hand laid?
Cost?

Thanks,
Charles

Especially when you take them apart and put 'em back together

Looks like I sold my Corvette Go Karts and my Corvette Go Kart Body's way to cheap. Oh well I was happy with what I got and the buyers got a good deal also. I had a couple C1's and a couple C2's and a C5 pace car and have sold them all. Sold one to a guy in Norway (a 63 white roadster Go Kart with race motor) and gave him FREE a 1963 Corvette SWC NOM 4spd White big brother to the Go Kart. He was happy and so was I.

Smokin Deal. I bought one of the old ones (from the 60's or 70's) here on the forum and paid almost twice that. And it needs repair. I gave it to my Two uear old nephew (for his dad to work on) Had this one been available I would have saved $400.00. Nice looking product and great pricing.

I'm coming in way late on this conversation... Are you still making these bodies for C1's? I'd love to build one for my 8 year old daughter. Thanks, Quentin

I'm mostly interested in a C1, but C3 at the right price might make me twitch. Have any pics? Thanks

I have a nice original 78 Pace Car version. What are they bringing these days? I've been thinking of selling it.
