antique pedal jeep...who made it?

Post by slatgrille » Sun Feb 20, 2011 2:32 pm

I've since restored this pedal car, but have no idea the year, make and model. Books, research online, car shows....nothing. Thought it might be a 'Tri-ang', but the grill is different.

It reminds me of "Sarge" from the movie "Cars".

Slatgrill, you are lucky that your nice pedal car is not a Tri-ang !It is much, much better, since it perfectly depicts the typical front aspect of a jeep, while the Tri-ang is quite lacking in that department.
I cannot help you in identifying it, but I really appreciate the job you have done.
I am sure it had a spare wheel, originally, but no jerrycan. Early! :)

Here is picture from the web, so also the other guys can see why the Tri-ang front is inferior.
