Looks like one of those little toy cars that parents can push their kids around in.
Might be able to use the body on a go kart, judging from the size.

Is it a kiddie bed?

What is it? I like the way you think though. We need more ‘bodied’ go karts out there.

Speaking of, I just found out that a friend of mine has a Dr. Pepper bodied NASCAR kart with a good 'ol Briggs on it! I can't wait to check it out!
Oops, probably shouldn't derail the thread....

looks very much like a bed indeed..

Does not matter much, it's a nice size and most of all a nicely detailed "body"

And although I'm all but a fan of "the vette"
It'd surely make a nice wrap for some two seater yard kart..
one could even keep the fake wheels and such..

might look cool in the end with just a tiny bit of fresh paint and decals.
I imagine it looking something liek the leMans style concession karts in the end.


great find.
