The green Jeep pedal car shown in the two photos has been in our family since it was new in the late 1940's. All original, except for a re-welded steering wheel. It was manufactured in Arizona, I believe near Phoenix, and sent to us back in Illinois by our uncle (between 1947-49) who had moved to AZ after the War. It was made extra strong with heavier than normal gauge steel. Practically indestructible, although the front bumper was bent to a new shape by a few elm trees in the 1950's. I've been unsuccessful at finding which company made it.
The red Jeep shown here (posted on this site 4 years ago by another member) is the only other one I've ever seen that appears to have been made by the same company. The rear deck of the red one is different. My guess is the red model shown was made later than the khaki green.
Can anyone shed some light on the maker of these two survivors?
