    I just picked up this awesome toy. The older gentleman I bought it from said it was in the loft of the barn when he bought the farm in the 50s.

  5. That kinda looks like the Flying Tiger that I went overseas in, back in 1969.

    Wow, I've never seen a peddle car like that..Pretty neat..Looks like a pulley between the peddles; round belt drive to the prop? I'd only rebuild enough to make it operational..

    Wow, that is so freaking cool. I hope you don't do a thing to it.

    Congrats!

    Just clean it up,... and seal it with Renascence, Micro Crystalline wax.

  11. I would definitely leave it as is except for a VERY light cleaning and the RenWax.JMHO.Getting it functional(if the prop is supposed to turn when driven)would be OK.
