This a late 1950s (1957) AMF Junior Rocket Trike. Very rare and hard to find in this condition. All parts and green paint are original. The paint has some scratches and scuffing. But overall very good condition considering it's age.
It measures 34" long x 19" wide x 30 high. A wonderful piece of mid 20th century toy memorabilia. During the 1950s and 1960s, AMF (American Machine & Foundry) Junior was one of the world's largest makers of children's riding toys.
Introduced to the world at the 1956 New York Toy Fair, the AMF Junior'Rocketrike' was a radically new development of the company's 1953'Junior Jet' and 1954'Sky Trike. As the company declared, it was the'first to break through the old-fashioned Model T design barrier. There were three models, the basic'650 Series,' the'660 Series' with more elaborate handlebars, and the'690 Series' which also had a tube above the rear step with red rocket caps on the ends, to mimic the style of the main frame tube.
