What year is this pedal car?

Recommended Posts

Saw this on CL and was wanting to know what year and body style is this?

That looks very similar to the one I had as a kid back in the late sixties......me and my brother was sharing a new fire engine pedal car and my grandfather picked that one up somewhere... it was old back then !  Maybe mid to late forties ??

Yes, it looks kind of familiar to me, too. I'm guessing that basic body style had a lot of variations to it. 

 

In my home town, we're lucky enough to have the Museum of American Speed, which is affiliated with Speedway Motors, a really big aftermarket street rod and sprint car parts supplier. Aside from being a cool automotive racing museum, it also has a giant display of pedal cars, and I don't think they just spray painted a bunch of junk they got out of dumpsters. They seem pretty knowledgeable on the subject, and I think have hundreds of pedal cars. Maybe they could help you out if you don't have any luck here.
