Murray pedal cars

Murray Ohio Manufacturing Co. was founded in 1910 by J. W. Murray in Detroit. After 1919 production continued at a new site in Cleveland. By 1923, Murray was making toy cars using the same steel and manufacturing methods, used to produce (full-size) parts for cars.

Before the 2nd World War, Murray used the name Steelcraft Wheel Goods to market their toys. It wasn't until after the WW2 that they started to use the name Murray.

I am looking for a tailgate for a 1951 Murray Sad Face Station Wagon. Only thing I find is a Dump body tailgate which I' think is different. Also I am looking to replace all the drive and steering bushings.
Not sure, maybe here: Murray Sad Face tailgate.

Good evening,

Great site; I am in need of a tailgate for a Murray Radar Patrol Pedel three wheel car.

Would you happen to know where I could find one for sale? I have been looking like a madman.

Thank you.

I have a Murray Trac from when I was a kid and was thinking about trying to restore it. I think I found some decals for it, but I was wondering if anyone knew the actual paint color of the red that was originally used and if it was still even available. I can’t seem to find how to attach a pic of it, but I believe it’s around a 1954 version.
No idea, sorry... you could have a look here for some pics: Murray Trac.

I have a Murray Sad Face Fire Engine pedal car that I'd like to restore. The left front wheel has fallen off. How do I reattach it? It has a solid hubcap, and I don't see how I can possibly remount it without prying the hubcap off. Help!
Sorry, I'm not an expert on repairing pedal cars. However, there are some Facebook groups with dedicated collectors, maybe try them as well.

I have a Murray wagon from the 1950s that’s in very good condition, but I need to replace the tires. I have the tires which are semi pneumatic. I know that they have to be heated and then stretched to be applied. How long and what temperature should I microwave a tire before trying to apply it?Thank youMikeOregon

I am looking for the bell that goes on the front of a Fire Dept N.288 fire truck
Some people sell pedal car bells but don't know to which original car it belonged. So if you search for: pedal car bell on this site you might find one...

Restoring my dtr's Murray tricycle from ~1975 as a memento. Need pedals. They were simple plastic ones that slide onto rod and secured with one-way clip. Any suggestions?I will resort to making with wood if necessary but prefer matching better.
