Buddy "L" originally was the Moline Pressed Steel Company, founded by Fred A. Lundahl in 1910. The company was located in Moline, Illinois and made car fenders and other stamped auto body parts . The Moline Pressed Steel Company also supplied parts for McCormack-Deering farm implements and International Harvester. The company started making toys in 1921. Mr. Lundahl wanted to make something new, different, and durable for his son whose nick name was “Buddy”. He designed and produced an all-steel miniature truck, made from heavy gauge steel, and a new era was born for the Buddy L Company.
Soon after, Mr. Lundahl started selling Buddy L "Toys for Boys", which were pressed steel or sheet metal. Many of these toys were large enough for a child to straddle, and a child could propel himself with his feet.
