1962 Valmobile

1962 Valmobile

Description

1962 Valmobile Suitcase Scooter

Weighing just 75 pounds, the Valmobile was marketed as a ‘foldaway motor scooter and golf car.’ The front assembly folds into the the body, and a pull handle allows you to drag the box by hand as it rolls on the rear wheel!

The 49cc two-stroke engine produces 2.8 horsepower and yielded 165 miles per gallon. It could apparently hit 35 miles per hour and it was available in Red/Orange, Cream/Beige, and Blue/Green. Marketing materials suggested you could fold it up or unfold in 30 seconds. According to a period brochure, the list price was $215 (plus a $10 fee if you were west of the Mississippi River). For an extra $79.95, you could also buy a Val-Cart, which was a mini sidecar of sorts that would allow you to lug along some extra cargo…like a bag of golf clubs.
