1950s Jeep Pedal Car

Post by Farrell Fox » Fri Apr 14, 2017 7:57 am

My girlfriend bought this 1950s Jeep pedal car for her next restoration project. It was modeled after Roy Rogers Cj2A "Nellybelle". We aren't too sure as to which company made it. We think it's a Hamilton but it has features that don't look like what is depicted elsewhere. We found blue on the body and red on the wheels. What's left of the Roy Rogers decal is present on both sides.

Nice find, that would be a good candidate for oxalic acid :)
