Vintage Rupp Go Kart:
$1,525

I bought this from the original owner this past Fall. When I met him to buy this Rupp Chevy Jr., he said he wanted to take it for one last drive. He sharedhis memories with me of he and his father and this go kart and he showed me childhood pictures of himself in this Rupp car. Unfortunately, his father had passed away last May. He said it should go to a true collector. I thought I would change the engine and let my three boys drive it but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. So it still sits as the original owner said, with no wrench ever taken to the engine. My wife thinks I'm crazy taking up garage space since I will not let anyoneride in this. Below is the original ad from the owner. I hope this goes to a collector. I have since purchased another Rupp car that had already been modified and have also modified it myself.

Below is the original owner's ad from last year:

1969 Rupp Chevy Jr.
Original owner, with full documentation on kart. Bill of sale, bill of lading and warranty card for Tecumseh...all original.
This was my birthday present when I turned 5 in 69.It has less than 25 hours on the motor and was usually taken out special occasions like a birthday. It was never rode hard. Scratches on it is from hard storage. Original condition. I think there was a symbol of some kind in the center of the steering wheel. That is not present.
Motor is a 3 1/2HP Tecumseh, it runs, and has oil leak from original gasket. This is a easy fix for me I wrench daily. A wrench has never been taken to this kart. I would think the new owner would want to be the 1st to wrench it, that is why I left it leaky. I am selling this as a collector type kart and the price reflects it. Rare genuine GM documentation is present. Kart is all original with original tires and turbine wheels. There are some scratches on the body and some of the decals are scratched also. Seat is in perfect condition, steering wheel is slightly pitted in some spots. Body was NEVER removed from chassis. Kart was stored inside garage for last 35 or so years. Kart is racing blue with white stripes and white seat. It was to mimic the Monza, but it looked very much like a mini Vettte. Made by Rupp serial# 263XX.
I just found recently the pictures of when my Dad brought the Kart home.
This is a rare Go kart, never messed with mechanically, only ridden about a dozen times and stored for a long time in Pops garage. These were made for GM dealers and promotions only. Dad was a builder who built a Chevy dealership in the Bronx,NY back in '69 and brought this home for my birthday. Excellent for racing or for the serious collector.

Car is now located in Southport, CT. Can pick up in person if you are close enough, otherwise you are responsible for arranging your own shipping.
