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.
