This is a complete metal body on a metal chassis with high quality bumpers and lights made up of plastic. It would be wonderful to see other Pedal cars too.
Very Good looking Pedal Bug, 67bug.

This is not a pedal car, its powered probably by a Villiers engine.
This image was used by Cartier during the first show in 2008, and this image is widely spread among dealers selling maharaja stuff.
A similar Rytecraft car once participated in a vintage car rally in Mumbai. It had come from either Kolkata or from somewhere in Rajasthan. As far as I can recall, it was a vehicle with road registration, and was being driven by a well built gent.

This is an image of a pedal car taken in the 1960's, picture was sourced near Madurai.

Cheers harit

Neither India, nor probably a "Pedal" car.

But I had to post the picture for its sheer elegance.....

The future Sultan of Morocco with Panhards ca 1930 (courtesy The Newyorker). Wonder why he looks so sad ?

Recently this car sold at a online auction for almost 2 lakh rupees. It supposedly has a royal background. From the grill profile it looks like a Packard to me.

I do not have the magazine (Popular Science, April 1932) - believe I got this from Googlebooks. Old magazines do show up on EBay. Most Public Libraries in India used to keep them too - dusty and forlorn in the back annexe!

I have originally thought the "toy car" was a Lea-Francis, your post indicates it was a Morris Minor. Thanks for the clarification!

No Royal background all made up. Certainly a Packard, but the auction house did not know that

finally found the source of this article.
it is from the April 1932 Edition of Popular Science Monthly ( find it on page 46)

Here:

Thanks
Kartik

Ps: popular science monthly is like a treasure trove for cars, excellent compilation on google books.

I'm not really that ancient, but at the play-school I went to, we actually had a pedal-scooter like this one. I vividly remember, it was a very attractive red and white.
This is an image from the net, just for reference.
