Restored Steelcraft Hook and Ladder

Here are some before and after pictures of a 1930’s Steelcraft hook & ladder pedal car. As you can see from the before pictures, it was in decent shape for its age and was complete, except for the ladders. It was rusty but had no major dents, so the restoration was pretty straightforward. This was restored some years ago. Looking at the pictures now, I noticed we did not put the trim back on the side of the car. I am not sure why, but in any case, I think it came out just fine. And one other note: this pedal car was found in a basement in Methuen, MA.
