Product Description

A delightful original pedal car…

Dating back to the mid 20th century, circa 1950s, this is an original pedal car by Triang. Originally the Thunderbolt model, this particular piece features original Red paint and has an authentic patina. We love its current condition, and this is probably more for the ‘restorer’ rather than the collector

The original Red paint is present with a splattering of rust and weathered nature. It’s rusty and of ‘used nature’, yet its oozing with character. The pedal mechanism works fine and all in all it’s a wonderful display piece. The condition won’t be for all, that’s why we see this on show somewhere or as a restoration project (rather than for the avid collector). It is certainly a ‘one of a kind’ piece…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The car is structurally good but there is an overall weathered patina with some paint chipping, rusty areas and some surface dents and abrasions. The one notable imperfection is a small crack near the steering wheel (as pictured) which means the steering wheel, column and bonnet area are a little more flexible than normal. We feel the current condition simply adds to the charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
