Listed District’s Phenomenal Finds Vol. 37 – Pedal Cars

Listed District is written by Ellen Richardson, a graphic designer and Pleasant Plains resident.

Strangely enough, I’ve found that there’s almost never a shortage of vintage pedal cars available on Craigslist. My family has had the same John Deere pedal tractor since the 50’s – it’s on its third generation of riders and still works perfectly and looks great. Vintage toys of any type are a great heirloom to pass from generation to generation, and are sure to outlast any battery powered contraption by at least a few millennia…
Though some of these are listed a little farther than usual, they might be well worth the journey. Happy Hunting!
