Nice thread. I remember driving the Austin and something boxy that looked like the Mustang courtesy of a neighboring kid and a neighboring kid of a cousin

Was searching to see if these are available, but the online shops only have battery powered cars. Are any of those any good?

That is a Lancia Lambda/DiLambda I guess - regular tourer bodystyle.

The picture has been for a while on EBay at a steep price, if someone is interested.

Agree with Karl on the Lancia.

Are the pedal cars available anywhere in India (Bangalore), I see a lot of battery operated cars, but not the pedal ones and hence the question.

Bumping an old thread. Are there any pedal cars available in India now? I see some dealerships for Berg toys (one in Mumbai and one in Kochi), but they seem to be selling to theme parks and not to customers.

Anyone had bought pedal cars here, every shop stocks battery operated cars rather than this :-(.

Yes, they are available. But the ones available have a plastic body on a metal tubular frame. And the quality is not too great.

I have seen a few at Abad Cycles here in Trivandrum. So check out those cycles shops which sell kids cycles too.

Recently this cute little pedal car came up for sale and I grabbed the opportunity, had been looking for one for a long time.

It certainly looks period and is largely intact except for certain minor issues , steering wheel is missing and can be found or easily fabricated, the pedal mechanism is all there, seat frame will have to be fabricated.

I don't know the make , hopefully someone here can shed some light.
The car weighs around 9 Kgs, and looks pretty like this, cant make up my mind right now, whether to restore it or keep it like this.

Looks like it is modelled on the Rytecraft Scootacar / Special
