Tracked down a Gaucho Hi-Torque on CL today. Paid more than I wanted, but this is the 1st reasonable shot at a Gaucho I've come across.

Body looks in good shape - not too faded.

I read about the recall on these, and this one had the replacement harness put in - the old electrical was cut. Runs in forward and reverse, but the left gearbox is shot based on the noise - yet to test the motor. Missing a lot of small parts (I'm hoping you guys can help me out!!).

Lastly - the wife did not appreciate coming home to find a new addition to our fleet. Let me know if you think this was worth the next week I'll spend in the doghouse over it :( . Thanks!

A Gaucho in Ohio? I've been looking for months and have never found one. It would be a shame if she made you sell it to me! Just out of curiosity, how much did you end up paying?

You got a great deal; this one is a real 4 wheel drive. this top all of what you have in the fleet (if they're kid toys) ;) 8-) :D

I think I have all the parts you need for it on the Gaucho I'm debating weather to restore or not :?

No, that is the Dragon. The hi torque has the manual shift gearboxes.


Great deal! Gear box parts are hard to find for that, but is worth the search IMO
