Item specifics

Condition:

Used

 
 1973 Gama Goat with stock Detroit Diesel serial # 2252822C and dated 9/73. Has 8837 miles.  Please view the pictures and video closely as I am not a Gama Goat expert.  I do know diesels pretty well, but not Detroits.  I am selling this for a family member who has had a stroke, so specific questions may take a few days to answer (please ask questions early and be as specific as possible).

It appears to run well.  I just drove it today about 20 miles to the farm were I live without incident.  I have never driven a Gama Goat before so I can't say if it drives great or not.  I would compare the drive to a late 1960s tractor.  I drove it at about 45 miles per hour and I would guess that maximum speed is about 60mph. It had not been started since mid-July but started immediately (started quicker than my 2001 Dodge diesel or 2002 VW diesel). Shifts into all gears, High-Low works, 6 wheel drive works.  Please see pictures for soft-top front/rear with rear seat cushions and accessories (I don't know if the top is complete but appears to be complete and in good condition).  Comes with 4 extra rims and 3 extra tires (may or may not be good tires and rims).  In the bed is a custom made aluminum frame grandstand for parades etc.  The tailgate has a couple of dents in it but opens and closes.  It does have one tire with a slow leak (halfway deflated from mid-July until today). One of the two sliding windows in the driver's side door is cracked.  The fuel gauge does not work.  Their may be other minor problems, but I did no recognize any.  Please look closely at all pictures and ask questions when in doubt.

My family member who owns the vehicle always tended to keep all of his machines in good repair and this was his second vehicle with a Detroit Diesel.  I do remember him saying that some plugs? or plates? were removed that would prevent it from being amphibious until installed.

This vehicle does have an Illinois title and registration through June of 2013.  The registration and title has the year as 1970 but the VIN is correct.  I also have an Illinois Department of Transportation Vehicle Inspection Report that appears to be dated 2011 (this may have been an initial inspection to get street legal plates?).

This is a no reserve auction but it is for sale locally (I want to let the auction run it's course, but if a local buyer makes a great offer on it the last few days of the auction I may pull the auction)  I can work with a long distance buyer if they can be flexible on meeting times etc. Vehicle is located in rural Carrollton, IL 62016 (close to Eldred, IL)
