I have a stock '84 EZGO Marathon (street legal) that doesnt move. I havent tested any of the batteries to see if it is just 1 or 2 that are dead.

I presume they are the original set. It was my mothers when she lived on this golf course and now I am taking care of the estate and everything and she does not want to do anything with it.

How much do you think I could sell this cart for?

Ok on the few years. That means the batteries are no longer any good. As far as the rest of the cart, maybe $200.00 tops if it is in really good shape.

1984 is really old and many parts are not readily available. However, for someone wanting to restore one that old, it could be worth a little more.

Perhaps some of the other guys on here have some ideas too. To put new batteries in it will cost about $600.00 with tax included. Add that with the $200.00 cart and you've got an $800.00 cart if nothing else is wrong, and that is about what it would be worth, maybe $1000.00 running.

I would like to keep it. How does $45 sound for used batteries? $90 new
$20 for used tires. $40 new

This is from the Electric Vehicle Company in Phoenix.
I presume it would be cheaper doing that than, buying new ones, selling the cart and then buying a newer one.

You get what you pay for. Batteries are the life blood of an electric cart.

IMO, I would only buy used batteries if:

1. They were less than two years old.
2. All were load tested.
3. Come with some form of warranty. 1 yr w/b great. 6 months w/b adequate. Preferably a replacement warranty not pro rated.

Just my $.02.

Having bought a few dead carts myself I can almost bet there will other issues that need $ to repair after you get the batteries. No tire likes to sit for two years. All electrical connections will be corroded or tarnished. At this age all the wires are suspect. Axle seals are dried out on top. brakes are rusty and stuck. Seats are...well u get my opinion. Sell it for $200 if you can.

I have bought 3 sitters and put used batteries in them with good results and 1 that was a disaster , can get used batts here for $25. w/ 3 month warrenty . You probably have a 50/50 chance of things turning out ok . just take it slow and check everything .

Goat, Yeh,but. This guy hasn't even pulled a tester out yet. He just wants to sell it. I know you are very mechanically inclined but i don't know if this man is? there is a big difference when it comes to projects like this
