Engineering and fabrication experiences gained in the aircraft industry were used to produce the Ala-Kart resulting in a machine that was both refreshing and different.

George Barton, President of Aero Weld the Ala- Kart manufacturer, was also the marque’s designer. In 1960 Aero Weld was located at 11921 East Slauson Avenue Whittier California. Ala-Kart was first introduced to the market place in the second half of 1960 via an advertisement in the July 1960 edition of Hot Rod magazine. The Aero Weld advertisement in the magazine encouraged sales by offering to sell any part of the kart so that do-ityourself folks could save on costs.
