    Have to check my pedal car collector books over the weekend and see if I can find a match for yours. I'll check for a similar wagon, too.

    The wagon is made by Steelcraft (Murray) I think. Here's a complete example:

    I suspect the pedal car is also Murray.

    Your car is a 1937 Steelcraft Ace. Here's what they look like complete.

    You get back into the '30s and pedal car prices can really climb. I thought about collecting the little cars, but my budget wouldn't support it. I'll just keep collecting older trikes, which I enjoy just as much, unless they start shooting up in price, too.

    It will be interesting to see where that nice car ends! I'm surprised the price is only at slightly more than a grand for it so far.

    I have not gotten around to doing anything with these.
    I am thinking of selling them. Not sure what they are worth.

    These two are for sale; make me an offer. I have some 30's tricycle parts and 24" bicycles as well if anyone is interested.

    Help keep these from the scrapyard.
    I've still got the car and the wagon and a bunch of trike parts.
    and some 24" wheel bikes

    Just curious...what tricycle parts do you have? Could you post a list or a photo? Not that I have a great need for more older trike parts, but my curiosity is getting the better of me. lol

    I'd hate to see these go to scrap but I think shipping would be prohibitive to 11520.

    I would trade bike parts for these but you have probably gotten everything from me you are interested in.
