Kit Turns Golf Cart Into Mini 57 Chevy
At the recent Big Iron Farm Show we found James Link of Jamestown, N. Dak., driving around with his friend Francis Gilles in a miniature 1957 Chevy car. Actually, the car was a fiberglass conversion kit that Link's sons installed on a Club Car golf cart. It comes complete with working headlights, taillights, and a hinged hood and trunk. It uses the golf cart's original seat, steering wheel, windshield, and roof.
  Link bought the kit from Custom Carts, Inc., of Sarasota, Fla. The company offers numerous other golf car kits including a Hummer, Chevy SSR, custom cruiser, custom classic, Warrior, custom taxi, camo, utility and 4-WD model. All kit components are sold unprimed and unpainted, but can be custom painted.
  The '57 Chevy kit includes a front and rear fiberglass body, a chrome look grille, and decals. The kit also includes light-up mufflers to make it look like the real thing. Options include seat back loops, carpet, AM/FM/CD console, a carbon fiber dash in wood grain or black, custom seats, rocker panels, and a primer finish.
  Mike Poole, Custom Parts Inc., says, "If you want, we can sell you a turnkey vehicle built on a used golf cart chassis to keep the price down. We can add a custom paint job and custom seats, as well as custom aluminum wheels."
  The kits are designed only for Club Car golf carts.
  The Chevy kit sells for $2,395 plus S&H; the Hummer kit for $4,195 plus S&H.
