Dating Guide for Pargo

Dating Guide for Pargo Carts

When first trying to date a Pargo get the serial number from the tag on your General Electric motor if you have one. Between 1958 and 1964 they also came with Baldor and Master motors as well as the G.E. motors. From 1965 on they used only G.E. motors as far as I have been able to determine. The serial number on the G.E. motor is actually three letters ending in the letter "N". When you find this three digit serial number go to the General Electric Dating Guide under Miscellaneous Carts. The first models to come out were models 704 and 754. In 1969 they introduced the 800 series of carts which became quite extensive.The models included the 800 and 803 three wheel golf cars and the 804 four wheel cart. They also made the Gibralter series of industrial three wheel cart models 812 and 814 which were personnel carriers with a little bed on the back and they had tiller steering. They also made models 812 and 814 which were four passenger personnel carriers with steering wheels. These looked like golf carts but had no provisions for bag racks. The also made ,industrial models 820, 824, 830, 840 and 844. They also built the Empire line of industrial trucks for carrying passengers and hauling supplies. They came out in the models 850, 851, 852, 853 and 854. The model 873 came out in the late 1970s to the early 1980s and was built by Eagle Electric Vehicles after the company was bought by them and moved to Texas.

Here is a chart of actual Pargo golf cart numbers I have gathered over the years. It will help you get an idea of your year and model. If you have a Pargo and are willing to share your information please contact us. The main information I need is your serial number, the three letter serial number from your motor if it is a G.E. and any additional information such as the type of brakes, whether it is a three or four wheel cart, how many solenoids it has, whether it is tiller steering or steering wheel.
