    I would like some help to identify this unusual pedal car. I almost think it is a one of a kind. It was bought on e bay with no history, in primer and did not have pedals, seat or windshield. The body is fiberglass and the frame is 7 layer plywood, 7/8 of an inch thick bent to follow the body curve. The front axle is cast aluminum with DUSENBERG cast in the axle. The castings that hold the 4 springs are also cast aluminum. The wheels are 13" in diameter with soft rubber tires made in 2 pieces and glued together to form a round tire. There are raised letters on each tire that say AJAX TIRES 30 X 5. The knock off hubs are solid polished brass with the number 8 in the center. The steering wheel is 4 spoke made from 1/4 in. thick brass and a dark wood for the rim. Approximate dimensions: L 54" W 28" H 30". I added the pedals, seat and windshield. Thanks for any information, Gerry

      Im wondering if its a Replica Peddle Car Kit?
    5. Recordmantime, 7 years ago
      was thinking the same but dont know enough about peddle cars ...but we have a few people in the room who collect them,... time will tell

      Somebody went to a lot of trouble, commercial or 1 of a kind ! Were the mounts already there & you just had to add peddles ? I'm confused along with Dizzy about the fiberglass. (Of course, I spend a lot of my time in a confused state !). I know absolutely nothing about peddle cars, but then things jump out at me here.

      I have looked at the internet several times to try see pictures of the pedal car and looking if there was a kit someone made??
      It was all there except for the pedals, seat and windshield. You are right that someone went to a lot of trouble to make this and had to have ways of casting metal.
      The fiberglass body mold even has rivet heads like the old racer bodies were riveted together.

      I think it's great. So, the fiberglass mold was made over an orig. body. That's interesting. So we know there's more than one.
