Club Car 1975-1980
A 1979 Club Car
This is the Club Car body style used from 1975 through 1979. The early cars had bucket seats but later a bench bottom with individual backs was used (see picture).
The car features a 36 volt electric drive train (6 batteries) and 4 speed control microswitches mounted under the center cupholder cutout in the dash. The microswitches control the five solenoids located just behind the battery pack under the seat.
It has two brake pedals: One to stop the car, which is a hydraulic system with a master cylinder under the dash and a wheel cylinder in each rear wheel. The other brake pedal is the hill brake, located to the extreme left side of the pedal custer, used to park the car on a slope. The hill brake is a cable activated system.
The motor is usually a BALDOR or GE brand and is mounted in line with the Terrell differential. The chassis is all aluminum.
The car is pictured here with the "factory" top. Rain curtains are still available, as are most repair parts. Folddown windshields, replacement or new tops and body parts are history.
