1959 Trident Taylor Dunn

1959 Trident Taylor Dunn

Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1959 trident Taylor-Dunn!!!!

Ok, I will admit it- sometimes we buy stuff for this department just cause its cool. That was obviously the case here and if you didn't think it was cool you wouldn't be reading this would you? So, now we have established its off the charts cool (think Euclid Beach, Coney Island) let's talk about what it is….

In the late 40's a chicken farmer in California named R.D. Taylor Sr. needed a way to haul his chicken feed around and he came up with carts to haul it. He then started selling his carts to neighboring farmers and he was asked to come up with a motorized cart and he developed the predecessor to this great little buggy. In 1955 he partnered with Fred Dunn and the two started developing a powered shopping car that was fully street legal. Today we know them as neighborhood electric vehicles. This is a very rare open cab model used in southern California and is 1 of 51 purported known to exist and is highly sought after by collectors of “such things”. This one spent all its time in California and was used until 1965.

In 2020 the Trident underwent a full restoration including 7 brand new HD batteries. Manufactured in 1959 by Taylor-Dunn in California and sporting its original California Black Plate this one is sure to be the hit of anyone's collection. Turn signals, lights, horn, flashers all work with all new upholstery. She's got about a 50-mile range on a full charge and will run 19 to 26 MPH depending on who's driving, how much the driver weighs and how flat the road is….

We've got 100K plus cars in our showroom and guess what our guests gravitate to- you got it- it's a beeline for the Trident. Make it yours and we will guarantee smiles from ear to ear.

Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.

We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet…. We pride ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.

Additional pictures and video are available, please call 440-365-7311 for more photos, information or to schedule a test drive.
