Now the question is- given that Hertz has had a VERY long relationship with Ford (Hertz provided the infamous white Explorer to corporate spokesman O.J. Simpson for instance), what were they doing modeling their strollers after a Chevrolet product?
When did their Ford tie-in begin?

Note though that Hertz started with the Ford Models.

"...in 1965, Ford Motor Company and Hertz entered into a joint advertising agreement to promote their products and services together. It was the first step in a relationship that came to fruition in 1994, when Ford Motor Company purchased all outstanding shares in the Hertz Corporation."

Does anybody have one of those post-Fair Auction catalogs, to see if the strollers were listed?

A couple have had to survived somewhere.

So I guess if the strollers had been made just a few years later; they would have been Mustangs!
That would be platform sharing to the extreme! LOL

I would bet the pedal car collectors snap these up.....

I could easily see them going home with Hertz employees after the fair, as well.
I really wanted to ride in one of these buggies. My mother brought me to reality when she pointed out that, at five, I was too old to ride in a stroller. Then, as now, the expectations of age sometimes hurt.
