I just saw this fiberglass GH on live auctioneers:

Seemed similar to this Batman one:

Seems to be this exact same one found in Kentucky, image saved from April 2020. And here it the current auction, 3 bids now up to $825.

Several years ago, there was a Craigslist ad in Kentucky that offered the mold for the Batman ride figure for sale. I believe he was asking something like $350 for it at the time, as I recall. Perhaps he also owned the mold for the GH figure?

Made by "AL FISCHER & CO."

At least four survivors!

A couple of "BOZO THE CLOWN" are riding in The Black Beauty??

Thanks for sharing the photos.

Not every TV series would get the kiddie-car treatment, and it seems to be undeniable that the wealth of licensed GH merchandise produced saturated in so many categories just in 1966 is an indicator of how Dozier intended the series to be a major hit. I cannot be certain, but it appeared the GH TV series had more direct merchandising with clear TV character imagery than Batman, which had a ton of 1966/67 merchandise selling the comic branding more than the TV series.
