      JaRvis94,
      That is an AMF "Big Pete" pedal truck, made in the late 1970's, I got mine when I was 6. Here is a commercial I found on Youtube that might help.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36yLeP2rTaM . The original body color is that brighter yellow found under the sticker. came with a play cb radio mike on the right side. I was living in Millville NJ at the time. Interior had mirrored stickers to simulate windshield. ( Only on front panel x2) Center Console was black and mirrored mylar to simulate dashboard controls. Push pedal set up with crank centered rear wheel drive. ( Steering was rod and pitman arm set up, but use a beefier steering pin. Mine kept breaking.) I spent years looking for this mistakenly thinking it was made by Little tikes. Just made the right connection 6/23/2014. Hope this helps. I think you could use headlight restorer to bring back the original color. Stickers are pretty easy to replicate. Good Luck!

      Long shot here, I own one of these. Had it since I was a young kid. I was hoping to restore it. The body is in great shape but it is missing the stickers. I was looking for more pictures of the inside of the dash and also of the pedal mechanism.
