1964 VINTAGE MATTEL VRROOM X-15 SPACE JET PEDAL CAR TOY TRICYCLE BIKE METAL RARE. 1964 Mattel Vrroom Tricycle Vintage Antique.This Mattel super trike pays tribute to the original X-15, which was built by a group from NASA, the Air Force, and the Navy. The X-15 had its first unpowered flight in 1959 and then launched from B-52's in a number of hypersonic test flights through the mid-1960s. Made of heavy gauge steel and solid as a tank this V-RROOM Pedal Tricycle is metallic blue with very minimal rust and outfitted with still functioning cool gadgets like a seatbelt with metal buckle, navigation, joint back wheels, and Mattel's own "V-RROOM" engine effect engaged by a dash activation switch, all original decals intact, and a side speaker. Rather than traditional handlebars controlling the front wheel, the front wheel is stationary and steering is controlled by a "joystick" in the middle of the chassis, which controls the rear end (similar to a drift bike). This makes for very sharp turns and an exciting ride.
