it's a 295 Robins/Fuji engine -not a bad motor, far smoother, faster to the powerband and much better torque than the Club Car singles, rather reliable too as long as You keep the valves set correctly and change the oil at least once a season. Looks like stock rims with 20's or 22's (hard to tell from the pic for sure) - that could be an issue if they're cheap 2-ply tires, with that much sidewall You need at least a 4-ply tire or risk some serious stability issues when cornering (especially with a lift and times 3 if You're carrying passengers). Around here (SE Wisconsin) that cart would probably sell this time of year for somewhere between $1400 and 1700, closer to $2k if it was peak season - You'll want to look for rust on the frame (generally in the front where it curves up towards the cowl and around the battery box) - a little on the battery box is fairly normal but once it starts it can get pretty bad pretty quick.

Around here, Atl Ga. They would be asking $2500. What they get?? Maybe a little cheaper in Mo. Its winter where you are at! LOL

I just picked up a 1997 TXT with a blown engine, no top, and needs paint. has a lift and 22'' tires for $250
By the time I build engine, paint, I will have a $1000 in it with no top and no rear seat.

Whats he want for it?

sounds a little high to me, or maybe a good starting spot!

1998 and stock wheels!

good luck

$2600 is not hateful, say a sock cart running is $1000 (low end), add a seat kit $350, lift kit $300, Tires about $350-400....that is roughly a $1000 in parts (ballparking) so that puts you at $2000. but you haven't lifted a finger, i would negotiate from there.

Still seems quite high to me, a rear seat kit is closer to $250, drop-axle lift $175, (4) 22X11-8 tires at roughly $50 each, still puts you at around $1625, and keep in mind it's an 18 year-old cart (although yeah, it saves You a couple of hours bolting stuff together) ... $2k will get You into a clean mid-to-late 00's cart with a back seat easily, and for $600 or so You can invest in a really nice set of rims and tires with a lift, get exactly what You *want* - it's really a matter if You want to take the time to do a cart the way You want it as versus a low-end turnkey cart

I've seen similar carts go around 2k here in s Texas but it's rare, everyone asks a premium price for a decent gas golf cart no matter what make it is.
