Default Pargo Golf Cart - how to detemine year & value

WE have a Pargo Golf Cart & are trying to determine what year it is, is there any easy way to figure this out? it is a 4 wheel model. We are thinking of selling it & was wondering if these are considered vintage or what is a good way to decide on a fair asking price. Thanks in advance for any help on this subject anyone has to offer!

From vintagegolfcartparts.com:

A Brief History of Pargo

Pargo was the brand name given to a golf cart produced by the Columbia Car Company which is in no way related to Columbia Par Car. This company was founded by Paul Corley and George Smith around 1957 in Grovetown Georgia. Paul Corley owned a large machine shop in Grovetown where he assembled E-Z-GO golf carts for the newly formed E-Z-GO Company of Augusta Georgia.

Bev and Billy Dolan of E-Z-GO had cut him in as a partner in order to have him assemble their carts. This is where George Smith enters the story. He owned E.J. Smith & Sons, a golf equipment distribution company that distributed the E-Z-GO carts. He and Paul Corley got together and decided to form their own company to build golf cars. Thus the birth of the Pargo golf cart.

These carts were produced as electrics only. The first ones were belt driven three wheelers with tiller steering. In 1965 they introduced their first four wheel carts models F-704 and F-754. In 1969 they introduced the new model 800 series which came with a new differential mounted disc brake. The models included the 800 and 803 three wheel golf cars and the 804 four wheel cart plus industrial models 820, 824, 830, 840 and 844. In 1975 they came out with the model 544 which had drum brakes and eight solenoids for four speeds. The model 544 also had a speed control with switches inside a jar that controlled the solenoid switching. They discontinued production of golf carts in 1976, one year later than Cushman. That year they moved the company to Dallas Texas where they made burden and personnel carriers for the industrial market. Eagle was chosen as the new brand name. The company was eventually purchased by Textron and moved to Augusta Georgia.

Thank you , the info you gave does give us an idea of the age of our cart. Does anyone know if there is any value to these since they may be considered to some as "vintage"? It is in fairly good shape.

I am going to assume a few things you will have to consider in evaluation:
The batteries are will all pass a load test
The cables are in good condition and connections are clean
The tires have 50% tread or better
The brakes work
The front end & steering needs no repairs
the seat is in gd condition
The body has no obvious damage
Value $900 - $1200




I do not know of any collector value for this cart. This is considered an off brand cart in the resale market .....Parts are hard to come by should it need repair. Value will vary by region. This cart will be worth more to use than sell. Check your local Craigsalist for comparable sales.

I hope this helps. Check your local market. THey
