    The name of the game was quality, not quantity with Midwest Industries, as only two body styles were offered. The sedan style pedal car was a direct reflection of the full-sized Studebaker Hawk. Called the Jet Hawk it had a large hood ornament and a flashy paint job.
    Midwest Industries made a couple of grahics changes to the car to introduce the Sportster and Strato-Jet. During production, Midwest made two minor body style additions. A rear platform made the Sedan into a Hook and Ladder, and later, a slight hood modification and the transformation to a flatter style grille created a different look. There was no mass production of the Midwest Industries cars, but the run lasted until 1962. Today, the cars are relatively hard to find!
