Hi Udo,

These cars are not to be found.
The red one is indeed a Gurgel children's car made by Macan industria in Sao Paula Brasil.

Here is a picture of Mr Gurgel sitting on one.
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


There is a small brochure for this car. I bought one last week.
Everybody has seen the pictures of the front of this bruchure, but now I can show the rear of the brochure.

Rear

The car was also for sale in germany. Attached is a scan a an old advertizement
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


And these cars were given as a prize for the Toddy's chocolades. The person who had found the Golden Karmann Ghia, had won a real gasoline motor fiber glas boddy Karmann Ghia. This promotion was in 1967.

The other one is Chai. I don't have more information about that one, Only that there is also a beetle and a bus. I think this is a one off car.
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


There is also a third chrildren's car.
It looks like the Gurgel, but this one has different rims and some other small details that differs from the Gurgel car. First three pictures are from a car for rent in Brasil. I allready tried to buy this one, but the owner didn't want to sell. The last three pictures were from a meeting in the US. Don't know were, don't know when.

Hi All

I finally find the maker of the "new" children's car.

The red one was made by Daniel and now he made a new one. He uses the same mould as the old gurgel cars.

This is his newest car. This one is a special and signed by EMERSON FITTIPALDI. For sale for R$ 18.000 (around 6.500 or $8.700)

Fantastic-

Timing is perfect!

Although only two weeks old, little Tomos would love one of those!!!


but is that six thousand five hundred euro's? Shocked Shocked or am I reading it wrong???? Confused

for that amount of money I think Tomos can have a full size Ghia to play with!

Hi Patrick,

many thanks for letting us know these wonderful news. Rolling Eyes

But the price is a little bit horrendous indeed... Mad
Maybe one can buy it without engine for a cheaper price to use it only as a kind of "collection decoration" Question

I know it is not a Ghia but I found these on the website of a Vietnamese stainless steel bumper manufacturer. (Also good quality!)
They make the 356 speedster, Jeep Willy, Merc 300SL, Bugatti and Jaguar E-type. Looking rather cool! Makes me want to have kids..

Even without kids ... I would like to have a Karmann Ghia pedal car for my collection. Wink

Why do they all produce the wrong cars... Evil or Very Mad
