    Found this in an old shop stashed in an overhead loft. I did replace the base of the hood light and the seat pad, other than that, it was all original parts and paint! Can you believe that? I did use some TLC and gently cleaned the Oklahoma Red Dirt and surface rust off of it, and put a new pull string on the bell. The bell, which cleaned up with window cleaner unbelievably shiny, isn't new. There was one hole in the left side that was made with some sharp object like a pick-axe, but I put some new metal in and mixed a special blend of oxide (yes I save rusted metal) with red paint and primer and touched up the repair. See if you can find it :). I have this on display inside my house now. This is the first pedal car I've worked on and there may be more in the future. I do not want to "restore" something that is still original , not just because of monetary value, but because of the history and preservation of the item itself. You'll notice some other goodies (i.e., the Kettcar under the table, doll trunk, 1947 pinball machine, Marx Doll House, etc., I'm working on in the background). Watch for some other posts from my eccentric and eclectic collection antics.
