    Just found this, what I believe to be, a Murray 1959 Pink Cadillac pedal car (although I realize it might have been made a little later than '59).
    It appears to be all original, including original pink paint. It has the distinctive 59 Caddi tail fins and the Cadillac "V" from that era.
    I don't know anything more about this cute pink Cadillac and have not had any luck in researching it either
    I would greatly appreciate any info you might have in identifying this further and I'm curious what it might be worth in this condition, whether it should be restored or just leave as found.
    Thanks for your help!

      Cool Custom!

      It's actually an AMF pedal car and someone did great job customizing it. All the chrome and fins were added.

      Thanks for all the input on this cool little Cadillac. I think I will restore, maybe even embellish to make it a cooler custom than it already is. Not too gaudy but just take it to the next level. If I could just figure a classy way to add the iconic bullet taillights that the 59 Caddi was know for. If and when I restore this pedal car I will post the "after" photos for all to see. Any ideas or suggestions on how to proceed, please let me know

      Good idea. It would not be that hard to add a duplicate fin on the inside of those to give it some width. Another option would be to build the fin out of would and cover with fiberglass. You can buy easy to use small fiberglass kits at Wallymart.
      I remember seeing a flashlight that had a red cone shaped lens that work for the taillights. Even just one on each side would give the effect you want.
      Have fun!

      I had one of these! It was my Gold Caderack! I loved it , guessing I was about 4-5, born Dec. 31,1955. It's really weird because I really don't remember my bikes or dolls. Maybe it's because I left it in the driveway and the next morning my Dad backed over it. I was crushed????????
