    This is a Morellet Guerineau child's pedal car from the 60's.
    My friend's wife bought it in a London second hand store a few years back.
    The previous owner was clearly a little confused by Italian car marques and added the stickers.
    It looks like it has been poorly repainted.
    I helped my friend identify it.

    I do see these occasionally on the auction houses Automobillia sales.
    My friends kids are now too big to fit inside.

    I'm considering it as winter restoration project, I wonder if it would be worth it ?
    Or should it be sold "as is"?

    Any thoughts welcome

    I would do the body shell only, to restore the Ferrari logos in a realistic manner, then leave the rest of the patina in place.

    Great item..

    I'd repaint it in Rosso Corsa and put proper Ferrari logs and numbers on it.
