The name of the game was quality, not quantity with Midwest Industries, as only two body styles were offered. The sedan style pedal car was a direct reflection of the full-sized Studebaker Hawk. Called the Jet Hawk it had a large hood ornament and a flashy paint job.
Midwest Industries made a couple of grahics changes to the car to introduce the Sportster and Strato-Jet. During production, Midwest made two minor body style additions. A rear platform made the Sedan into a Hook and Ladder, and later, a slight hood modification and the transformation to a flatter style grille created a different look. There was no mass production of the Midwest Industries cars, but the run lasted until 1962. Today, the cars are relatively hard to find!

    I have three wheel, similar but is powered by battery.It is metal body with "wild bear"printed on fender decal and stamped on white wall tires. It looks very similar to '50 s or early' 60 s vespa scooter.would like to know what it is and who has parts for it.
