Pedal-Powered, FIberglass Body Monster Trucks



Several years ago I built these pedal-powered, fiberglass body monster trucks, which are designed to be driven by kids from 12 to 16 years old. All of them are chain-driven and have 2-speed transmissions. I built a total of 16 different pedal-powered monster trucks and also built pedal-powered, fiberglass body tractors for kids from ages 4 through 12.

 My wife and I traveled to fairgrounds all over the western states, hauling up to 40 different rigs - including go-carts and pulling sleds as well as my home-built pedal-powered machines - in a truck and trailer. We had tractors to fit all age brackets and weight classes. Kids could drive the trucks around obstacle courses and try to balance the rigs on a teeter totter. They drove the tractors in tractor-pulling contests. They really had a lot of fun with these rigs.
 The bodies for both the trucks and tractors were factory made in Tempe, Arizona. I built everything else. To make the monster trucks I used the differential from a Datsun 210 car and cut it down. The cab is off a Ford model T. I sold all the machines to different people quite a few years ago, but many of them are still operating in several different countries. I also sold blueprints for the rigs. (Harry Benjamin, Triangle Pipeline Co., L.L.C., 205 S. Devon Rd., Shelby, Montana 59474 ph 406 432-2196 or 406 460-2196)
