What a gorgeous beasty!

Appears to be a 1″ axle and a dry clutch, if so then maybe late 70’s Margay chassis? Maybe late 80’s or early 90’s body work?  I assume aluminum tanks are hiding under the body work.  Body is not aerodynamic enough to run with a modern kart.  If it is a 1″ axle, the axle is too flexible for use with modern sticky tires.  Too old to be competitive, but maybe too young to be vintage because of the body work.

A whooped on but complete enduro kart from that era with aluminum tanks sells in the $600 to $700 range.  But for a nice looking kart like that, value is in the eye of the beholder.

It’s a beautiful example of Americana vehicle culture.  If someone buys it to part it out, there is a special place in hell reserved for them, plus the parts won’t be worth much.  If you do get it, see if a road racing club will let you run it in in a road race in a vintage or a  “run what you brung” class.  Also run it with harder tires or it will hop like a bunny in the corners.
