Here's a refresher and update on one of my winter projects. This is boss-mans buggy that he remembers playing in as a youngin. We dug it out of the trailer this winter for unique project. It was in excellent shape and "most" of the bolts can off fairly easy. I don't know the year this was made, but it is a Michigan Buggy Co. carriage. The following link is sorta long and dry, but it gives some history of the company. http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/l/limousine/limousine.htm .


lifted it up to make it easier to get to the bolts

With the frame done, it's time to start the body. It shouldn't take too much.

Buggy whip holder




Found a split board on the back. :shock: I wonder how they used to do it before powerplaners and power sanders ;)

Didn't they become General Motors? Some of those buggy parts look familiar, like maybe they were also used on some chevy's that I worked on.

It'd be nicer if it was mine. But I really enjoy hunting the info on it. ;) Every year we'd say "we ought to paint that thing" , then we'd close the doors and forget about it. I guess this was the year. :lol:
