I have looked for one of these for a long time for a display partner for a Buster Brown toy sewing machine. Lucky you!
Yes, I'll put up a some more from time to time. Any in particular you are interested in? We have a few that are unique, either by their condition, or the manner in which they came to us. Glad you like...

I think it might be one of the early Irish Mail cars. The 3-wheel and this type steering were later considered unsafe for children.
I think it is called an Irish Mail. . . powered by the lever action and steered by the "pedals".
