Chevrolet Other 6.5HP 1973

General description : Cruisin' Classics is proud to present this beautiful piece of GM history, in the form of a MODIFIED Chevrolet Monza Chevy Jr. Go Kart. Produced by Rupp, these were a promotional give-away for the Chevy Jr. show car that GM took to auto shows. They made several styles.. It sports a beautiful red paint job, making it look just as it would have when it was new. The old 3 hp Tecumseh engine was replaced by a Honda-Clone 6.5 HP engine and runs just as it should. The most recent owner also added an electric Key Start for your convenience. This is a very quick little kart. This particular kart has a lot of history. It was bought new at a Chevy Dealership. The man who bought it, let his kids ride it for years until they outgrew it. He then put it in their shed where it was stolen shortly after. A year later, it was recovered but it had been painted. The owner then put it back in the shed for another 35 years. One of the sons sold it, and the new owner then restored to what it looks like today. There is no identifying number to know exactly what year and model this actually is.
The History of the Monza SS Chevy Jr. from a staff historian at the Corvair SocietyThey were built by Rupp Manufacturing in Ohio on a fairly stock Rupp Dart Kart chassis, with the special Monza SS-replica bodies attached. They were initially made just for Chevrolet to give away at auto shows, traveling Chevy shopping center shows, Chevy exhibits at fairs, etc and even at Joie Chitwood thrill shows (a kart was used by clowns in their act, too). Later on, Rupp sold some on their own, and Chevy dealers could buy them for their own contests. Between 1965 & 1975, they were given away at ALL kinds of auto shows & fairs. From 1965-67 they were called Monza Juniors (Monza Jr) and were red. From 1968 to approx. 1971 the name was changed to Chevy Jr, a white stripe was added to the nose, and the color changed to a red-orange. After that, the color changed to blue. Some were painted white and used at "Safetyville" in Flint, which was sort of a miniature town for driver training.

About Chevrolet
Chevrolet aka Chevy, founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant is the best selling and biggest brand by General Motors -mainly due to low pricing.

No wonder Chevy the "working man's car" has become such an iconic part of Americana in films and pop-culture.

When talking about Chevy one must not ignore Chevrolet small-block V8 the world's most produced engine that has been in production since 1955 and still going strong.

Surprisingly, "America's only sports car" Corvette was introduced under Chevrolet brand rather than its own. To us the most memorable Corvette has to be The second generation (C2) Corvette, Sting Ray.

To compete with VW Beatle Chevrolet introduced Corvair a compact automobile built in 1960–1969 It was the only American designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. Corvair handling was deemed notoriously bad mainly due to Ralph Nader's Unsafe at Any Speed. Although, any handling issues were soon solved the reputation did stick.

With Pony / Muscle car mania taking over the Americans, following the introduction of Ford Mustang, Chevrolet came up with one of its most famous models Camaro. During the first year alone they managed to sell 220,906 Camaros.
