The Company Car
( WEST COAST DESIGNED & BUILT )
Produced by the DUZGO Car Company Whataroa South Westland, this is one of only ten ever made between 1974 & 1979.
Production stopped due to bureaucracy placed on the company by the N.Z
customs department that classed the DUZGO as a new car (despite the
fact they were built from recycled car parts) and demanded sales tax
paid on those already sold. The company couldn't afford to do that and
were forced out of the business.
At this time the company had orders for another 15.
The DUZGO is described as a precursor to the four wheel farm bike, they
can travel over soft ground pulling a fair load, go anywhere and not
leave deep marks on the paddocks.
This model was #8 of the production line, A 12 horse power single Kohler engine powers it.
It has 2 gearboxes, with 12 gears and 2 reverses.
Update: This little car is for sale ,enquiries please contact us 2013.
