Pedal car with almost Porsche emblem

#1 Post by John Wurner » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:08 pm

I have this 50's Pedal car, and the picture shows the Horse with wings emblem.
Anyone have an idea what maker this might represent?
My Brother picked this up in Europe thinking it was a Porsche item.

I guess it was an Italian pedal car -- search Goggle and Voila. Pedal cars are a breed by themselves.

Go here for repro pedal car parts. http://www.pedalcar.com/

Go here for the history of pedal cars http://www.95customs.com/a-brief-histor ... /2015/2/16

The word is "pedal" not be confused with the quite rare Baby Bugatti that were battery powered made by Bugatti -- little Typ 35's, LWB and SWB .

You may remember B-J sale of Ron Pratte's pedal car collection and the big $$$ they sold for. See https://newatlas.com/70-vintage-pedal-c ... 8/#gallery
