But one somehow managed to survive, parked outside an auto-shop in Millington for years, where it gathered rust and somehow lost its wheels and engine. Thats where Joe Patty, owner of the Lickety-Split Ice Cream Company, saw it. Two years ago, Patty purchased the old Merrymobile, totally refurbished it, installed a golf cart engine and transmission, and added it to his own fleet of vehicles.
But now its for sale, and for $6,500 you can purchase your very own original Merrymobile. Patty has posted pictures of the thing, pre- and post-restoration, on his company Web site.
