Austin J40 child's pedal car
fondly known as the 'Joy Car' or 'Junior Austin', the 'J40' was manufactured from 1955 to 1971 by disabled miners at a factory in the village of Tiryberth, near Bargoed in South Wales. Built at the instigation of Lord Nuffield, owner of BMC, soon after the Second World War, they were sold in Austin showrooms for £20, which was a considerable price at the time. It has a dummy engine with spark plugs, a handbrake and electric lights and a horn, some attention required. They were made using off-cuts of metal supplied by Austin’s Longbridge factory. This example is finished in soft green with grey upholstery and is the subject of an older restoration, it would benefit from some recommissioning. Chassis number stamping in boot floor - 7933.
