NOS Cart

Recommended Posts

Always wanted a Simplicity Cart that was in good shape.  @fishnwiz had a good one for sale a few weeks ago but it was a bit far away.  Last weekend I spotted a Craigslist ad for an NOS cart in a box in North Jersey.  My BIL was nice enough to pick it up for me and, unexpectedly deliver it to me on the 4th when he came for a visit.  He has an older classic Cadillac and disassembled cart easily fit in the trunk.  Some pics:

The wheels/tires are pretty much mint:

Only thing is the tailgate doesn't have a "Simplicity" decal; I thought they all did:

He had 2; there might be one left:

AWESOME  More than a fair price IMO. I have owned both with and without Simplicity decal on gate but all have had Simplicity part # on front of cart.

I would have bought them all and took them to Portage dOd

Worth every nickel.  A cheapie cart goes for about a hundred bux now a days, and this one will outlast them by decades.  Great find Bill!

I bought 2 NOS 1691986 carts back in 2005.  They are black carts, but still the same style of cart.   One was for a friend, mine is still in the box.  Likely won't ever open it up.  I also have an NOS cart body and tailgate that I have found over the years.

Wow......MORE  NOS cart stories. Pretty neat.

I myself have found 1 cart that was as close as one could get without still being in the box and that cart was grey.

Thanks for sharing your stories.
