The introduction of pedal car toys can be traced back to the 1890s when most were modelled after the real cars of the day. Pedal cars were popular toys for wealthy kids during the 1920s and 1930s. By the 1940s, steel was rationed for use in producing military arms, but after WWII and into the 50s and 60s, pedal cars made a big comeback.
The inspiration behind our 1950s Murray 'Holiday' Pedal Car Art Print
Pedal cars, like this Murray 'Holiday' edition, were mini metal works of art, featuring details found on real cars like chrome detailing, hood ornaments, white wall tires and custom paint jobs. This particular car has seen its share of wear, tear and scrapes since it rolled of the line shiny and new, but the original lines and character still show through.
Vintage pedal cars are a prized find to many collectors. This print makes a great addition to any collector that prizes vintage-inspired art.
