    This is just a curiosity question.

    Below is a photo of my brother, sister and myself in a pedal racing car at home around 1952, which I have found in a collection of my mother’s. We did not see it again after we moved from the Lewes, Sussex, UK area in 1956, but believe it was an export model. My father had various American contacts.

    I am afraid I do not know the manufacturer or have no further information. Have searched the internet and not seen another like it.

    Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Yours sincerely – David Booth

      Awesome photo!
      I do not know who made this one. I have only seen the one other photo, same one Walksoftly posted of this car. I am quite sure it is not a US made car. I have hundreds of pages of pedal car reference but not this car. The wheels are like no other pedal car as well.

      Thanks for pointing out the 'other' number 5 car on the Old Classic Car website. The wheels and general shape look the same except No 5 seems to have a slightly longer nose. The search goes on regards the manufacterer - sure it was British for export.
