OH SHIP! NOS Unassembled Dolphin Pedal Car


Hi my name is Matt, and I am a pedlecaric. Yes, I have been about 25 years pedal car free. But today I am struggling. Holy crap! This little Dolphin Pedal car boat combo punch may literally make me want to buy a pedal car wagon. AHHHHHHHHHH. You all know I have a “thing” for NOS anything, and I was always able to keep my pedal car addiction buried in the back of my cortex, because it was cars. And I have chosen another distraction , boats! Wood boats which slow my addictive issues down. Combined with some vintage stuff that occupies some other part of my brain. I am somewhat safe. But this could do it.

Just sniff that old paper

This one is a Dolphin, there were several Murray boats, The Jolly Roger had an outboard, and the Skipper a different color theme. To me the Dolphin is the one. inboard, and a simple color pallet.

That little burgee and cushion are pure gold

I am reaching out to any of you to please buy this thing and keep it away from me. I mean, its not good for me, I cant assemble it. Then it looses its value. I am a blob of an old man, and would crush it to drive it. And if I put it at the Global HQ, it would rust. But my basal ganglia is screaming. YOU NEED THIS! YOU WANT THIS. YOU MUST HAVE THIS. And yet, the 25 year recovering pedlecaric in me knows. I must let it go.

The way the deck should be

SO HERE YOU GO. ON EBAY. ONE LITTLE CLICK! I mean it’s just one little click, that wont hurt, right?

    You could always say you’re buying it for the grandkids, but I’m not sure a starting bid $3,800 pedal boat should be left to their use and abuse.

    “Wood boats which slow my addictive issues down.” Umm, I think that failed some time ago.

    Just get the Murray pedalboat Hallmark Christmas ornament. That’s how i solved it

    Yes I also solved it by getting the ornament when they came out. Then I found one that is approx 12” long Ny but I forget who made that one. And they take up less space

    Heck Matt the pedal boat is in Westland only about 1.5 hrs from algonac. You can check it out when you get up here. AND you can stow the pieces in Stinky for the ride home.

    Buy it now or I will. The grandkids will love it and you will love watching them use it even more. The way things are going you’ll still be able to resell it in 10 years for $8000 with patina.
