Amado always tries to present something unique and different for his submission to Legacy Art Albuquerque. This year, we spent many hours trying to find the "perfect" antique pedal car. It wasn't easy! These cars are hard to find and expensive when you find them. This is a 1957 Mercury (we think). We got the car, stripped the paint, applied bondo where needed, and put primer on it. It is now ready for the Amado Pena touch. I thought some of you would enjoy watching the transformation so I am posting pictures of the process. Enjoy!
Update: We now know all the background on this pedal car. It is a 1950 model Murray Champion sedan. It originally sold for $11.98 at Sears. It was manunfactured at the Murray Ohio plant. It is called a Murray Champion Dipside Sedan. As you can see, it has all original parts and the Pena touch. Come to Legacy 2013 and you can bid on it!!!
