CONSERVATION OF A HISTORIC BUCKBOARD

This original spindle-seat buckboard wagon came to us in amazing original condition. Our customer fell in love with all the unique design features in this rare light-weight sporting vehicle which included curved spindles and bent wood backs on the seats, as well as full buckboard design with flexible floor and Schuler torsion springs. Because of its excellent condition, we opted to conserve this antique wagon keeping everything original other than the upholstery, which we replaced with an authentic Bedford Cord. One of the most unique aspects of this buckboard was the beautiful paint finish which used a faux technique to create the appearance of wood grain. The back seat of this vehicle is removable and there is also a hand-forged luggage rail to keep baggage and packages secure. Click here to see more of this wagon restoration.
