1906 Orient Buckboard

1906 Orient Buckboard
Sold at auction: $11,000

4hp, single-cylinder engine, rear-wheel chain drive, front and rear leaf spring suspension. Wheelbase: 84"

The 1906 Orient Buckboard offered here was purchased in the late 1990s by the Remember When Museum of Riverton, Wyoming. Two years later it was acquired by Florida collector Al Wiseman, who in turn sold it in 2007. While it is currently titled in Florida as a 1903, research indicates this Orient is in fact a 1906 and it is being sold as such. It is entirely original and its body is comprised predominantly of wood, which appears to have aged somewhat and exhibits minor damage to the fenders. The metal wheel rims, suspension, and steering components have been finished in red and show signs of aging as well. The single-cylinder engine is located at the rear and exhibits signs of road use, but appears to be in good overall condition.

Although the mechanicals and appointments of the Buckboard are primitive in virtually every regard, these very same qualities contribute to its delightful pioneering character. It is as much a pleasure to behold and drive as it was at the start of the twentieth century.
