This is a Coca Cola Die Cast Metal Pedal Car mostly red with only the yellow you see. My husband and I believe it is a 55 Chevy but we are not sure. There is a picture of a Fireman (maybe a Policeman) on the rear fender (both side of car) drinking a Coke and the words "What you want is a Coke". On the front fender (both sides of car) is 5c. The Coca Cola logo is on the door of both sides of the car and the Patent is in the rear of the car. The car is in great condition. We bought the car at an antique shop about 10 years ago on the way to Atlantic City, New Jersey in anticipation of a grandaughter who didn't come until 6 years later. I remember when I was very young about 10 years old, we had a neighbor who deliverd for Coke to local stores. He drove an open truck identical to the one I have and I remember the Fireman (at least I always thought it was a Fireman-my husband was looking with a magnifying glass and can't tell if it is a policeman or fireman). PS: Our neighbor used to give us a bottle of Coke when he saw us sitting on the steps. Anyway, the grandchild came and by the time she was able to play with the pedal car she was too big and by daughter said she was certain she would ruin it. Our car looks great on our loft with other vintage articles we have. Lately, we had company over and they were looking at our car and a few of our friends thought our car was "Not the Real Thing" but I would beg to differ with them especially since the Patent is as plain as day. Thanks for your help.

    I'm afraid your neighbors are correct and so is TGBWC. Coca Cola Co. never made one.

    Thank you guys for the information. This is the reason I couldn't find out any information. I guess my truck will always be "The Real Thing" to me.

    Is it made by Gearbox? I have a Coca Cola pedal car from them (pic in my album).

    It's still cool! I've also felt that one should collect things they like and are COOL!

    I'm sorry that it took me long to reply. Jonima, my pedal car is a Gearbox. I guess I thought it was the real thing because of the Coke Logo and the Patent on the truck. I think it's COOL too.

    Do you mind me asking how much you paid for it? Thanks
