Excellent. I have collected pedal cars off and on in the past 30 + years. I've had some nice examples. I don't collect them anymore. No room and too many other interests. This is a top end nice original example. Easy a $2000.00 car I'd say. I was into my Austin J40 for closer to $4000.00 but it was a total resto. Sold locally so still can visit it!!

Very nice, Mark - looks to be a '37-'39.
Always
Damn Good to hear from you Dean !
Hope all is well out East.

Thank you for info., Earlier the better.
My first attempt to research these resulting In finding mostly restored shiny cars.
Still very nice but hard to compare.
Pricing seems to be all over the boards.
Years and specific models will help in narrowing my search .

Mark, Murray Ohio made a number of variant Lincoln Zephyrs in the late 30s up to the beginning of the war under their Steelcraft brand. Your car is specifically a 1941 example. That's the year they introduced the wheel style found on your car. I have attached a catalog page from the 41 Steelcraft catalog. You will note that the body and wheel colors match your example. As you state in your description, your car has the more favored windshield and front bumper as also shown in the 1941 catalog. Hope this helps. I realize I'm very late the party.
