This vintage metal push car has original the branding “Stewart-Warner” on the front and is fully functional.
Painted red with reflective strips down the bonnet, ‘Bardahl’ sticker on the back of the seat and 4 metal and rubber wheels. This car was yellow at some point and traces of the paint can be seen where the red has worn or chipped away. There are some surface scratches, paint chipping, a deep scratch in one of the reflective strips down to the metal, corrosion where the paint has come off and one of the front wheels is smaller than the others. It came to us this way and it does not affect its handling. Please see images.
Stewart-Warner was an American manufacturer of vehicle instruments (a.k.a. gauges and lubricating equipment) and many other products. The company was founded as Stewart & Clark Company in 1905 by John K. Stewart. Their speedometers were used in the Ford Model T. In 1912 John Stewart joined with Edgar Bassick to make vehicle instruments and horns.
Ole Bardahl, a Norwegian immigrant, came to the United States in 1922 and settled in Ballard, a community of Scandinavian immigrants located in Northwest Seattle. After purchasing a small chemical company, Bardahl developed a unique formula for oil additives. Over the next 20 years Bardahl’s business steadily grew and based on its reputation for quality, the company expanded rapidly across the country and internationally until it became the leading additive manufacturer and supplier in the U.S. Bardahl is also famous for its long heritage of racing, having sponsored many race teams around the world.
