  4. Definitely a 'repro' Early production run with a visible seam over top front edge of hood
  5. Yes "CW" is for the appreciation of the item. If you want to talk money and values talk to e-Bay. As for a BRUM Pedal Car, Is it a genuine BRUM or a copy like the one in the pictures as any Yellow ...
  6. Interesting !! But it is what it is !! A Flower Pot ?
  7. Fantastic only just found this, Yes the dates are all wrong with the Logo's. Up to the 50's / 60's it would have read Drink Coca-Cola then it went on to read Enjoy Coca-Cola and by the 70's the Dyna...

  11. graumm calling rattletrap, Yes with a Repro you are not destroying something that's getting rare. At least Golden Wheel, Dexton & Kalee along with Great Gizmo & Baghera are still readily available a...
  12. Hi Yes some of you still have that Cross to bare I gave it up early over 10 Years ago after 30 Years in Heavy Goods. The Steering, I put a hollow sleeve in the King Pin to stop the yokes from closing...
  13. Hi again, google Baghera Pedal Cars in France, They do Mail Order and take PayPal. They will have a flat Steering Wheel that could be adapted and Ladders and a Bell. Floppy steering, This tends to b...
  14. Hello and Yes I saw this one recently on e-Bay UK. As for age try 2000 on. I have six or more of these Model 'A' Roadsters & Utility's that can be viewed if you scroll back and search my 'handle' gra...
  15. Hello again down there, I have just on acquired of these Pedal Cars. I wanted a base vehicle for a 30's Artic Tractor and the size is about right all I have to do now is make a chassis extension and ...
  16. Scroll back to the second entry on this site to see details of a US Mail Truck.
  17. Could be "Great Gizmo" Could be "Baghera" Could be any thing. Very common made in China. This is an early example with spoke wheels. "Uk" prices £50 to £100. Been around a long time and still bein...
  18. Yes clean it Coca-Cola trucks were never dirty. Use a good Auto Polish and haze remover but try it on the underside first and don't trust the yellow paint just in case.
  19. May be search "Coca-Cola pedal cars" any where, any listing on line.
  20. Looks very much like a Murray Dip-Side in what was once possibly Coca-Cola Livery.
  21. Hi there again, The best part of having a one-off is saying that you made it your self. And the more you put in the better you feel with the result. It's an expression of your skill's and emaggerna...
  22. Is it British ?? Is Line's Bros or Tri-Ang ?? Is it a Vauxhall as the Radiator Shell and Bonnet (Hood) with the Flutes are reminiscent of Vauxhall's of the early 1900;s
  23. Hi Down there, That wouldn't be a hint for me to get building again would it. But then it would be very expensive and the shipping costs would be horrendous. I was thinking about building a two seat...
  24. Hi and yes Originality is a major part when looking at the more collectible ones ie:- Tri-ang, Leeway and the American cars but the common Chinese made ones although nice to collect are a good basis f...
  25. Your really getting it bad now !! You do realize there is no cure. it's when people start saying ( or are they saying it already ) "don't you think you have enough" And you say " It's Ok I can h...
  26. Gd day down under, nice to see a small but growing? collection. My collection is growing (32) but on hold at present 'funds limited' you can see most of them if you look back through my postings. A...
  27. looks like an original Gendron Pioneer Roadster. Shame about the wheels, but then Wheels is Wheels right.
  28. The under frame and pedal rods are very similar to another Italian pedal car maker TT Toys-Toys that started in the mid 70's and is still making cars now. Could there be a link ??
  29. Hi I know it's not much to go on but there is a Company in Italy called "TT Toys Toys Search Wikapieda if you have that over there. They started in the ...
  30. Yes but modified with a documented history is another thing, It makes it unique. A rare one-off.
  31. Oooo don't you just hate a showoff. No nice to see your collection, I have only been doing Pedal Car collecting for the last 3 years but I have been Die-cast collecting all my life. Graham.
  32. Hello fortapache, and happy new year to you and all our readers. You are close with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Part of the idea came from the car but I think what gave me the trigger idea for the car w...
  33. I thought I would bring you this one to end the year with something good.
  34. Yes it's nice to take some thing that's readily available and reasonably priced and create some thing that pleases a lot of people. I would never do this to a rare car even though I could as then I c...
  35. Oh and to add one more thing the Windshield was a Sun visor from a 1950's Motor Coach. Graham.
  36. Hi I take it you like it then, Graham.
  37. 1970's Route Truck, If the dynamic ribbon is plain white, 1980's if silver underlined. I drove one here in the 'UK' in the late 70's.
  38. Well on enlargement there is a small resemblance to the Noddy Car but with a Classic Car type front. Is that any help ??
  39. Yes sorry to burst your bubble but it' most likely between 10 and 20 years old at most and still available. There are several different versions available here in the UK on e-Bay at modest prices.
  40. I have a Black & Gold one and a Off White & Gold one. I am looking for a Red & Gold Fire truck but there is no rush as finding one is all the more fun.
  41. Here in the UK we have many Car Shows / Country Shows / Steam Rally's. These are normally static events held in Parks, Sports Fields and even Town Center's. Where you would get a large gathering of ...
  42. I'm still looking for the London Taxi !! This is a Middle Class Luxury Car. Ha Ha !!!

  45. I did warn you this would happen. When you don't buy anything for a while you get the "must have" Feeling. And there's no cure, Even when your pocket money is stopped you have got to get it some h...
  46. Hi For all you want try scrolling back 4 years to "AnglaSue" and all will be revealed.

  48. Hi Yes, Take a tip from the previous listing of "PedalP" He's had permission to put it on the Sideboard 'Ha Ha' "No" all joking aside they are nice display pieces and should be shown off and the mor...
  49. Hi Paul now you have started some thing and when it gets hold there's no stopping it ?? And you are allowed to keep it on the sideboard ?? Yes I have always wanted one of these but never got one. G...
