Well, I'm at it again! I've got another project that needs funding and it looks like I'm going to have to part with my beloved Mr. Toad car.
This ride vehicle is from the now defunct Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Walt Disney World. His name is Toady and he is car #21. Mr. Toad's Wild Ride was an opening day attraction at Walt Disney World, and Toady served his time on Track #1.
I've owned Toady for almost 2 years and he was featured last year in MiceChat's booth at Disney's D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Dustysage, Fishbulb and Circarama get ready for the D23 Expo!
Since last years D23 Expo, I've had the seats reupholstered and done a little touch-up paint, but the car maintains most of the patina that graced it on it's final day of operation on September 7, 1998.
Here are some more pictures...
One thing that seperates this ride vehicle from other Mr. Toad cars (that have made it out of WDW) is that Toady still has his 120 volt motor in the back.
Just think, you too could have a Mr Toad ride in your backyard...
Here's a couple of great YouTube videos of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride from Walt Disney World...

I'm asking $8500 for this iconic bit of Walt Disney World history and I will deliver it anywhere in California for FREE! Out of state delivery is the responsibility of the buyer, though I'll be happy to help the buyer make arrangements for shipping.
Interested parties can send me a private message here at MiceChat, or email me at [email protected].
Thanks for your interest!
