Default Hunting Custom - keep or trade

I have inherited a 36V 1997 Club Car that is heavily customized for hunting. I am not a hunter but our family would use a cart in the subdivision or on vacations (street/cart trail style).

The cart has fairly new batteries and is in pretty good mechanical shape.

I need to decide whether to keep the hunting cart and 'convert' it to street/trail use, or sell it and buy a cart more suited to our needs. I have a couple of local hunters already interested.

So, some questions I am working to get answered:
- how is that make and model with regard to maintenance. (was it a good model year)
- would maintenance be significantly better on a different make/model (I don't plan on investing much more on a running cart than what I can get for this one so I probably will still have a 10 yr old cart)
- since it is customized for hunting, I probably can ask more for it from a hunter than someone wanting a general cart. But how much more?

Any insight from you seasoned pros is appreciated!

I will add some pics.

I think about all I'd do is remove the back seat, footrest & cage around it. Maybe paint it if camo isn't your thing.

It has:
- gun rack
- storage compartment/lower hunting platform on rear
- reinforced roof structure with folding apparatus that creates hunting platform (with skirt) on roof
- ladders for accessing either platform
- side stabilizers (manually extended and locked) to add stability when using roof platform.
- offroad tires

It may sound crazy but I hunted from the roof platform several times and it worked really well. With the stabilizers (small version of the stabilizer legs that extend from utility boom trucks) it is very stable.

If the consensus is that this make/model is good, I'll remove the platforms, add a roof and back seat and use it here.

""""fairly new batteries """""
Figure that if you are trading up you will need new
batteries in what ever you get. Factor that in on
what you sell it for.

I'd keep it, at least you know what you got in that cart instead of the unknown.....

BTW, I really like that cart!

That's the real deal man... It's got a factory Club Car lift kit on it... The car appears to have been built by Club Car as well.. The reason I say that is because of the paint job... Back in the late 90s and early 2000s Club Car subcontracted the camo paint jobs out to a local paint and body shop in this area and they all look identical to that. You've got a good quality built car on your hands... but it's a 36 volt V-Glide vehicle. If the 36V has plenty of power and speed for your needs, by all means keep it. Personally I'd either convert it to 48V or sell and buy a 48V car. They're much stronger and more efficient as well.
