This is my birthday present from the early 1960's. It is still in the original condition, never been repaired, repainted, or restored in any way. I played with it at my grandparents for years, then it sat in my parents basement, heated and dry until the early 1990's. I have had it with me since then, and my grandsons were the last to use it.
I really wasn't planning to get rid of it, but it takes up so much space, so I guess it's time. All steel, except the pedals, which are plastic. 40 x 17 x 19 (with windshield down).Yes, there is surface rust, but it is solid everywhere. There are a few small dimples here and there (I used it a lot, I loved this thing).
You can see the 2 rear "bumpers" are bent, and the back end on the left side is dented in a little. The seat is also dented and bent. The 2 white marks on the seat are remnants of duct tape adhesive. I put the tape there so my grandson would not cut himself on the metal.
If you look close, you can see the metal has broken on the edge, less than 3/4 long. The'windshield' goes up and down.
There is no glass, never was, just a frame. Tires are still round, no flat spots. The front wheels spin so freely, you would almost think I just lubricated them.
The pedal mechanism still works perfectly. The left rear wheel is the drive wheel. I couldn't really show the entire car with just 12 pictures. Contact me and I will send as many additional pics as you like. Package must be signed for upon receipt.
