Default 80's era CC

Im looking at picking up an electric CC. Owner cant find a serial number plate, but thinks its an 80's era. I havent gone to look at it yet, but any idea where the serial number might be found?

Thanks,

Locating your serial number

Club Car "Caroche" models from 1970 to 1980 have the number located under the driver's seat on a metal tag riveted to the the I-Beam located just inboard of the drivers side batteries. The "Caroche" model is distinctive. The nose of the cart is square and reminds you of a Mac truck. It also has three pedals, two of which are brake pedals. On 1981 and newer model DS carts the number is located just under the passenger side glove box. The first letter or letters of the serial number designate the model and the first two numbers following these letters designates the year of manufacture. Letter A or AA is for electric carts, AQ is for electric carts with the IQ regen braking system, and letters AG stands for gasoline carts.For example serial number AG8637-63472 would be a 1986 gas model DS cart.

Ok. Still havent had a chance to go check out this cart, but really interested as I think the price is right. Cart is operational, but needs batteries.



I know its not a lot of info, but what does the group think its worth as is?

Thanks,

it's earlier eighty's (seat hinge). floor is sagging (repairable). Battery trays probably need some work (repairable). I'd guess $100 - $300 (needs batts and a lot of other worn parts eventually). My guess. Good Luck. Merry Christmas!

If the charger's included and the frame is in good shape, I'd be comfortable paying up to around $500 for it. The key thing to remember when purchasing an old cart that needs batteries, no matter how good it looks, is that new batteries will be $600-$700.

That said, I'm a sucker for these old carts, especially 5 solenoid models. If they're operating correctly they're bulletproof, and almost all problems are easily diagnosed and fixed.

Ok, time to bring back an old thread. I finally got this cart down to the shop back in May, but it has sat in the back since as its been ballz to the wall all year.

It has an aluminum frame and at a glance, it looks great all around, even under the batteries. I did find the ID plate, but have not run it yet.

Im kicking around what all i want to do with it, but need to budget for getting it up to good working condition first. I have some questions:

Its a 36V and needs batteries and I have a feeling, a charger. These carts can be upgraded to 48V, right? Not including batteries and charger, whats roughly involved parts/cost wise? I figure if I am buying batteries and charger, might as well make it worth while.

Charger symptoms = When plugged up, gauge does little to nothing and the unit shuts off after about 10 minutes. Other then its output voltage, any tips to determining whats happening?

Thanks in advance for the assistance

My wife has almost the same cart...it's been a GREAT cart, simple and dependable. I put new batteries in it, keep it 36v., added an onboard charger removed the top (her Topless cart )and its been running solid for almost 6 years without a hiccup. Anyone know when CC went to the slip-in hinges from the pin type hinges?
Have fun with your cart!
