For sale is this American-Retro Pedal Racer AR-5001 was inspired by the Ferrari F2 style racer,1952-57. It's a beautiful piece of art and well-proportioned to allow for it to be 50% larger than other pedal cars. They were produced for California-based former company American Retro, LLC. 492 N. Alta Ave. Dinuba, CA 93618. 

The Pedal Racers came in red, black, green and white painted colors and a small number, said to be, 10 that were chrome plated.  In that last year, the auction prices for the painted versions reached $6,000 while 2 of the chrome racers sold for $11,100 and $18,000 each. None of those sold were in the pristine condition of the one for sale here.

This car has steel bodywork finished with its original automotive black finish.  It has a single-seat cockpit with features include a chrome windshield frame and faux exhaust pipes. The chrome stamped-steel faux wire wheels feature two-eared center spinners, and they wear 12” solid rubber front tires and 13.5” rears.

This pedal racer measures approximately 50″ long, 16″ wide, and 20.5″. It weighs in at 50 lbs.

This pedal racer “serial number 629” is extraordinary because of its flawless condition. As the pictures document, we recently purchased this pedal racer 'new in the original box' with the original packing materials included.  We assembled it but it was never played with.  There is no corrosion, dents, dings, scratched or wear spots. Just the way discriminating collectors like them.

The pedal racer AR-5001 is in very high demand throughout the auction community and it is enjoying strong values. Even the lesser quality examples that are restored, scratched or dented command excellent values.

“These racers were made as a child’s toy but now, they are

a serious collectable”
