Vintage Pedal Car Plans
Classic vintage DIY project plans
Vintage play car project plans of a half scale replica of a 1901 touring car by George E. Jones.
Powered by an electric motor, this project would suit someone with metalworking skills. However, plywood could replace some of the sheet metal construction.
Sidewalk play car
This sidewalk play car has electric motor drive.
The plans are quite rudimentary, anyone with skills in sheet metalwork and woodwork should be able to build one.
Designed by Elmer V. Clark, and published in Popular Mechanics.
Replica roadster car
Battery powered replica of the prototype roadster. Paint it bright red and its sure to delight.

Jeep pedal car plans
There are two pedal powered jeeps to build from these downloadable PDF plans.
The first designed and built by Herbert R. Pfister, of New York City, and H. A. Machlan, of El Campo the second.
Another set of vintage pedal car plans, this one designed by Paul Thompson Sr. appears in an article in Popular Homecraft magazine February 1945.
Once built, it measures about 59 inches long.

why free plans
Most of the time, when something is offered for free, there is usually a catch. They invariably seem to want something in return.
Fortunately not in this situation.
I like free stuff as much as anybody, so these plans I have made are free to download. You can share them with your friends as long as you do not make any changes to the plans themselves.
But don't worry, that does not mean you have to make the toys exactly to plan.
You can also make as many toys as you want, any way you want to, and give them away or even sell them.
In order to help pay for the cost of running this site, I do earn a small commission from helping other to sell their products.
Making a donation would help me to be able to spend more time on designing and publishing more wooden toy plans.
Your contribution would be greatly appreciated, not only by me, but also by fellow woodworkers and makers of wooden toys.
Thanking you in anticipation,
