Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1904 Orient Buckboard 4 HP For Sale.

Registration: BS 8560

Chassis no: 2268

Engine no: 1431D

Marketed as 'The Cheapest Automobile in the World Everybody Should Have One', the Orient Buckboard was the product of The Waltham Manufacturing Co. of Massachusetts. That company had graduated from bicycle manufacture in the latter years of the 19th Century to producing an electric vehicle in 1899.

Charles Herman Metz, the founder of the company, soon switched production to petrol engined vehicles, initially adopting De Dion and Aster engines. By 1902 the company was manufacturing its own engines and when Leonard Gaylor joined the company in 1902 the Orient Buckboard came from his drawing desk.

It was powered by a rear-mounted, vertical, single-cylinder engine of 4hp, weighed just 400 lbs, had a claimed top speed of 35mph and would climb a 1:12 hill in top gear. Steering was by tiller and the flexible hickory wooden platform provided the suspension.

We are proud to have this rare survivor of the charming and quirky American veteran sitting in our showroom and ready for viewing. Coming to us after completing the 2017 Brighton run, this early motorcar must surely today offer the most economical and exciting ride for two people down the A23 to Brighton. It is UK registered, VCC dated with Certificate No.2498, and ready for year's London to Brighton Run.
