I guess the Mustang I have now is not really my first Mustang. I got my first Mustang when I was around 3 or 4. It was the original Mustang pedal car. I got it from my brother for Christmas. He is 14 years older than me and really got me into cars at an early age. That is him standing next to me in one of the pictures.
I remember that he had to put blocks on the pedals so I could reach them. He also stuck a block of wood underneath the rear seat between the body and the chassis because, hey, we all had to have out cars jacked up in the back end back then.
I remember in high school seeing an article in Hot Rod or Car Craft about the Mustang pedal car. At that time, they were worth a couple grand. At that time I asked my parents what ever happened to the car. They said that when they were cleaning out the garage they had taken it to the dump. Love to have that car back again!
You do see Mustang pedal cars on E-Bay once in a while. Many times they are not the original like I had.
Hope you guys enjoy the pics!
