Purchased this BMC Special coated with rust but mostly complete. The seat bottom was completely rusted out, the front axle and spindles were bent and falling apart, the exhaust and gear shift lever were missing. As a collector I prefer objects that show their age and history of use and abuse (within reason). I decided to do a "barn find" restoration in the style of the early speedster automobiles that are collected and raced on beaches and the salt flats by car enthusiasts. The exhaust, headlights, velocity stacks and gear shift lever are not Murray replacement parts but fabricated and rusted by me.
My first pedal car but probably not my last.
