Brand new, this buggy costs about $8000.00 That is not me looking into the buggy (picture one). When Anna saw the color of the interior, she said it would be to hard to keep clean (picture two). Picture three shows the dashboard of the buggy. There is a reflection of wood that was put in the buggy so people wouldn't go in it - it didn't work - adults and children were in and out of it before it sold. Fourth picture shows the interior floor of the buggy. Next four pictures show the reflectors that we have to have on buggies in New York State. Sixth picture shows the step that Marilyn asked about. Last picture shows buggy ready to be auctioned off. If you look close at the reflection on the front of the buggy, you can see Marilyn taking the picture.
Michael and Edward tried to talk David and Jean into bidding on this buggy. They wanted it as their courting buggy. David and Jean didn't agree. I think that is why they and Marilyn left early - not to give the boys any ideas. Anna and I stayed to watch the bidding that was hot and heavy. I can't remember the exact price, but if my memory serves me right it went for about $7,000. It went home being pulled by the new owner's horse. We are not suppose to have pride, but sometimes you can't help it a bit, winning a brand new buggy like that.
What we forgot to mention is the buggy and tires are mostly fiber glass. Most of them are made that way today.
