Don't know much about pedal cars so hopefully someone can help identify what model this one is and approximate date of manufacture.

Looks like this was a "woody" station wagon version of some make/model.

Again any help would be appreciated - Thanks!

Could be a 1949 Garton, looks very close to the fire truck only in the station wagon style. The wood seat threw me but you can see the top of the seat in the pic. Cool piece.

Just some FYI on the pedal car -

It is a Garton (thanks Les!) model is a 1937 Ford Woodie. These were made from 1948-55.
