    Any idea who manufactured these Go kart mini Jeeps? After reading the listed stories and a quick Google search, didn’t find anything. Near my old home base in NJ, there was a Guy on Michigan Ave Paterson that had a P/T go Kart (with a C or a K, I don’t know) business, would visit with my dad back in the 60’s, never did I see a Jeep kart.

    Mike,

    I was wondering that as well. I imagine it was a Go Kart manufacturer, but I couldn’t find any information either.
