1950s MURRAY 40” PEDAL CAR FIRE LADDER TRUCK JET FLOW DRIVE
CONDITION NOTES: This awesome pedal car is in great condition for its age and is ready to be added to your collection! The car features a white steering wheel, metal rearview mirror, alarm bell with pull rope, two original wooden ladders, two forward side red bumpers, and two rear green plastic lights. The rear green lights are for show and do not light up. As you can see there is some paint wear overall, but nothing too bad. Normally these pedal cars are all rusty and require restoration, but not this one! The car is free from rust but may show some light surface oxidation here and there, which is to be expected. Luckily, the sides and face of this car still look fantastic! The steering wheel is free from major damage such as dents and the steering shaft is straight. The white paint shows a little wear. The rearview mirror is original and the reflective glass is very clean! You could shave or apply makeup in this mirror! There is some surface oxidation where the mirror attaches to the car, as you can see. The alarm bell is free from all major damage and looks great. The pull rope is likewise excellent, and the bell chimes beautifully and loudly! The ladders are intact and sturdy and look fantastic for their age! As you can see there is some wear to the corners and some light surface wear, but for wood this old they are just excellent. The two forward side red bumpers have faded a little over time and are no longer the deep red I imagine they once were. They are free from cracks and are intact and secure. The rear green plastic lights look brilliant and clean and are likewise free from cracks and very secure.
This pedal car features some unique and beautiful decals! You’ll be hard pressed to find this version elsewhere on the internet. The Murray logo which appears on the seat back is good for its age and contains some scratching as you can see in photo #5. The JET FLOW DRIVE decals are their original yellow and are in outstanding condition. On the hood you will notice a logo that says NOVAK with two sets of three lightning bolts on either side. I get the lightning, as this is a jet-flow-drive vehicle, but the NOVAK logo is beyond me. If you have information on this please feel free to contribute!
As you can see, this is an excellent example of Murray pedal car craftsmanship. Even the tires are in excellent shape and show only the smallest amount of surface wear. You’ll be very impressed with this car!
