This T-Bucket Electric Golf Cart is the Real Deal

electric T-Bucket golf cart

Not too long ago, we posted a story about an electric T-Bucket golf cart, which garnered quite a bit of attention although the cart itself was a bit on the unusual looking side. However, when I spied this mini T-Bucket for sale on CraigsList I was impressed.

Finally, somebody has succeeded in achieving “the look” on a small scale. And I’m not just talking about the profile (which looks eerily like a blue version of our logo), but this little hot rod has all the details. Just check out the suicide front axle, transverse leaf spring and radius rods. You just gotta love how they’ve nailed it with the big ‘n little wheel and tire combination.

It turns out that this is truly a one-of-a-kind downsized T-Bucket that was designed and built by a specialty golf cart company that, due to circumstances unrelated to the product, never got off the ground. This isn’t some tiny T-Bucket body plopped down on a Club Car chassis with a few other mods. Instead, it’s a complete ground up build of a special purpose vehicle that’s roughly 40% the size of a conventional T-Bucket.

And if you look closely you’ll see a solar panel on the roof for charging the 36 volt supply either while you’re on the course or when you’re menacing the neighborhood dogs and catching mature admiring glances as you tool around your chosen gated community or town. This cart is titled (as a 2010 model) in Arizona and is street legal. To make life easy for you and your partner, it even features opening doors on both sides and a beautiful T-Bucket interior with all the amenities.

Powered by a 6.5 hp GE electric motor, it also comes with a 36v portable charger and will go up to 32mph. At a more conservative 25 mph, it has a range up to 25+ miles depending on the terrain you’re traveling. The asking price for this beauty is $18k and the owner will also consider interesting trade propositions. Hey, it’s more than a Club Car or a GEM but then again a nice T-Bucket hot rod is gonna cost more than your average Ford Focus. (If you’re familiar with the market, you’ll see the price is totally in line with high-end, custom golf carts). If you’re ready to step up in your club world, give Gunther a call at 303-345-3760.

  1. Wow!!! That golf cart is a beauty! I can only dream that someday I will be able to spot the same craigslist ad you did on the same cart. Doesn’t hurt to dream….

    • Hi Bill, You may not have noticed but this is a story we wrote many years ago about someone who had a cart for sale. As noted in the comments, we don’t build carts and I have no personal knowledge of how to build one.

  3. I am so very interested in the 1923 T bucket golf cart. Is this company still in business? I would love to get more information on this project. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Thanks for asking, Doug. At the time of writing this I wasn’t aware of who the manufacturer was and I still don’t know. I’m sure with a bit more research in the golf cart world (which I’m quite unfamiliar with) you’ll be able to find out who made it.

  4. Thanks John it is very sweet and it rides like a t bucket a little rough more of a cruiser to the store or around the community than for golfing its cool to haul the clubs to the course then take the courses cart out on the course as getting in and out the doors is not very practical although the doors can be removed
