Irish Mail Child's Pump Car

I am looking for some information on a child's ride on car that I just received. All I know is that it was built in the 1930s and 1940s by the Beckley-Ralston Co. of Chicago. It's an "Irish Mail" riding toy that moved forward when a child pushed and pulled the pump handle. The steering was done with the feet. The nonmotorized riding toy's official name was ``Doodlebug Spe-da-way.'' It could be adjusted as a child grew and was advertised as a ``physical developer.'' The model that I have is green in color and Says "Irish Mail Chain Drive" across the back. I would like to know if anyone has any further information about this item and it's value? Thx, Dave
