Vintage pedal cars were popular children's toys that were first introduced in the late 1880's. Some of the most valuable vintage pedal cars from a collector's standpoint, were those manufactured by the Butler Brothers company. These cars were called "Juvenile Steel Automobiles" and featured open steering systems, sheet steel bodies, open bodies, and double wheel spokes. Pedal cars were fashioned after the currently popular cars, with some of the best selling models being the Scorcher, Wizard, and the Speedwell. The most popular pedal car of the time that is still held in high regard by collectors was the Butler Brothers pedal car version of the Model T Ford.
