Default E-Z-GO 1950's barn find. Model 200?

Hello...I'm new to the forum,

I picked up an E-Z-GO cart at a tractor show a couple weeks ago. A man (who had to be in his mid-70's) said it was his father's, and when he passed away they stuck it in the barn.
Came right from the barn to the show.
It's complete, but rough. I can't pin down the year, but I think it is
a 1954 Model 200. Can anyone confirm that from the pics?
It has 7 solenoids. The later 50's models had five, from what I've read.
The seats have been wrapped in a heavy black plastic, but the original white covering is still underneath.
I had the bottom cushion removed when I took the pics. Motor is a 24v.
It also came with the original MAC B5 36v charger ( No way I'm plugging that thing in until I go over the wiring. )

Any info on this would be appreciated, including what it might be worth if I fix it up.
Thanks!
Dave

I'm thinking these are fairly rare since I can't find much information on the 1954 models.

HISTORY



During a hot summer in 1954, in a cramped one-room machine shop in Augusta, Georgia, E-Z-GO® was born. Two brothers started with a simple belief that they could build a better golf car, that better met the needs of the customer, than any other vehicle then on the market.

It is an absolute classic. A collectors item.

Yeah...I read that the 24v motor was army surplus and controlled the flaps of a B17! The sheetmetal came from the backend of Plymouth automobiles.

I think mine is definitly a Model 200. I'm wondering if they made both Model 100 and Model 200 in 1954/55.

E-Z-GO has pics of both models on their Facebook page. They haven't responded to my question yet, though.

Hi!

Well, my first step is to learn as much about this cart as possible. I'm taking it slow...got a few other things I have to finish up before I tackle this.

I also don't want to change anything...just restore what is there.
I haven't been able to find what it might be worth. I've seen other restored 50's carts (by professionals) go anywhere from $3500 to $5k. This one is pretty rough, but all signs point that it might have been made in the original E-Z-Go garage by the Dolan brothers. That's pretty cool!
