  • Complete and accurate restoration

The Waltham Orient Buckboard had a companion model, the Surrey. Essentially a tandem Runabout, it places the driver and front-seat passenger farther forward than the Runabout, overhanging the front axle. It has the same four-horsepower two-stroke engine, but is heavier at 600 pounds and has an extended 86-inch wheelbase. Suspension is via four full-elliptic leaf springs. Just 1,020 Surreys were built.

The Buckboard has been completely restored with new wheel hubs, with replacement of wood as necessary. There is a fringed Surrey top, wrought-iron armrests on the seats, a wicker picnic basket, and a tablecloth. Awards include AACA Junior, Senior, Preservation, and Grand National, as well as a First-Place winner in the

AACA Golden Award of Excellence. The Merrick Auto Museum acquired it in 2006. It was previously in the noted collection of Vince and Pati Chimera in Sunrise, Florida.

The only thing more fun than riding with a friend in a Waltham Orient Runabout would be riding with three friends in a Surrey.
