Show Stopper Blue Surrey.

This is a brand new, never been used, show piece quality, covered surrey that is sure to turn heads. It is deep, rich, blue with meticulous, red, pin-striping throughout. The carriage boasts two comfy seats, forward and back, with plenty of room to escort a bride and groom or a dignitary about town. The seats are gorgeous crushed, blue velvet and are a work of art in themselves. The carriage is complete with a fold down, topper that covers both seats, yet can be easily broken down and stored behind when the weather is clear.

The whole carriage is solidly built with suspension front and back, wheel rollers and comes with hydraulic brakes for added safety. Functioning, safety lights in the back and stunning carriage lights in the front add to this unit’s beauty and functionality. Attention has been paid to the hand stenciling of flowers on the sides and rear of the carriage. A trunk, tastefully decorated in matching flowers and bronze lock on the back adds to the spectacular beauty of this one-of-a kind surrey.

Antique Doctor’s Buggy With Lights

This is a beautiful, old doctors buggy, black in color with red accents on the wheels and undercarriage. The dash has been redone in faux patent-leather vinyl as is the seat and back. The Top is in excellent shape and is convertible. Good quality carriages of the time came with quick couplers underneath for ease of shaft hookup and safety (a fact that I would not be telling you if they were not part of this particular unit). The fenders are original as are the carriage lamps. Finding these with together with an original buggy is nearly impossible as these have become very collectable items, selling for hundred of dollars by themselves. With this unit you get them complete with the fully functional carriage. It is a real piece of American history.

Green Market Wagon

Since selling our first, we have received more calls about finding another market wagon than for any other vehicle. Fortunately, we have found two. This is a spectacular, brand new market wagon that would compete with anything on the parade route. It is a deep green on black color with hand painted gold pin-striping and designs on the box and the seat. The wheels are rubber and together with undercarriage and wheels are painted a deep forest green. The box and seat are suspended on the undercarriage with a front and back leaf spring, rather than side to side, to give the wagon an exceptionally smooth performance. Shafts are green with gold striping and come with a patent leather cover and bronze tip protectors. The top is easily convertible and folds down behind when an open air ride is preferred.

The box is reinforced and lined with rubber matting. Two removable oak varnished stock racks complete the appearance of this stunning, brand new, market wagon.

Burgundy Market Wagon

This is the previous green, market wagon on steroids. It is both larger in size and is, if you can believe it, even more ‘pimped out’. It is brand new, deep burgundy in color accented by hand painted gold pin-striping and designs. Its dash, wheels and accents are finished oak and the dash even sports a three-cup holder and shelf for personal belongings. It has an immaculate, convertible top and tan colored, vinyl, button upholstery on the back, seat and top. This one has hydraulic brakes for safety and because it is super sized, the box has three rather than two, removable, oak finished stock racks. It is a beauty to behold and everything you need for a nice ride in the country or a run on the parade route.

Old Doctors Buggy Needing TLC

We are often asked to be on the look-out for an old, original carriage that could become a project for someone to adopt. Here is one that is in need of some love and devotion. It is a very old doctor’s buggy, undoubtedly just overflowing with history. As attested to by the bonnet style of the top, it is from the mid to late 1800s. It is complete and functional as is but has the potential to become anything that you would like. The upholstery has been redone some time in the past as has the dash and the wheels. This is a large doctor’s buggy as is evident by the fact that it comes, not only with shafts but also with a pole to accommodate a team of horses. This is a once in a life-time, antique doctor’s buggy just waiting for you to adopt it. It is destined to become a prized heir-loom in your own family.

Goat Cart

Here is a miniature piece of carriage history. These small goat carts were used for moving produce from field to farm and to market. A goat was trained and hooked up to pull the wagon from place to place. This one is not only cute but also a piece of history that can be stored and displayed in a much smaller space that the full sized carriages. Sold as is. Goat not included.
