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.
Though a bit late still, nice find, IMO this weathered look suits the (pedal) car.

I too got lucky as recently something interesting came my way and I bought it, it seems like a locally assembled car, actually its a JEEP

Will post pics by weekend.

I am now thinking of restoring the pedal car, don't think it will last very long if I don't restore. Look forward to your pictures !

Meanwhile here is a J40, soon to be restored in Jaipur.

Looking forward to the restoration, best of luck. BTW just out of curiosity, from where can those type of tyres be sourced ?

Anyway, here are some pics of the pedal car.


PS: Kindly ignore the messy background of store room.

This Jaipur based pedal car, very similar to the one I own should be seen at the Jaipur rally this year.
