I have owned this antique buckboard for over 50 years (see attached). It has always been kept indoors and is in excellent original condition. I used to drive it (with my horse) and I do have the shafts. I would be very interested in know more about it, how old it is, and what it is worth.
AW says: This is a fantastic piece of Americana! It’s cira mid to late 19th century and looks to have the original old red paint. I sold several of these in October of 2008, at the Dunklee dairy farm auction.
These were a must for any family and your’s is a two seater, kind of the equivalent of a station wagon. Because these were so well used, there are not many of them around in very good condition, so your’s gets points for that.
