||I own this pedal tractor and am interested in its worth. It is original condition with only a slight cut in the right rear tire. Estimate that it is at least 45-50 years old as we purchased it from the original owner who got it new as a child. The decal states the following:
ESKA Tractorcycle Manufactured USA ESKA Company
||I am definitely NOT an expert on these, butI see tham on Ebay in varying condition sell for between $100 to $500 depending on condition and rarity. The fact that yours is 50 years old in like new condition would make it worth while investing in researching this as you are doing. My wild guess is that it's at least worth a few hundred dollars, but I'm totally unfamiliar with how rare yours is, or if it has rare features that might make it worth more. But in any case, do not sell it at a yard sale for $5!!! Do you have any antique stores or auction houses in your area that might be able to give a more knowledgable answer? Or stop in your local Tractor Supply Company and check out their book rack, or the library. It really is worth a little time to check it out.
||I've seen similar pedal tractors sell for as high as $800 to $1,000. If you want to sell it, start high, you can always come down.
||Congratulations! I see it sold on Ebay for a decent price, it went over my estimated value.
