Chief’s buggy. Ex – Owensville, IN.


The Fire Chief of the Owensville, Indiana Volunteers used this 900 pound runabout as his official vehicle until about 1920.  Local legend has it that he was passed while on his way to a fire by a young boy on a bicycle who wanted to see the fire. 

The little car, with its one cylinder engine, wood frame, and wood axles, went into retirement shortly thereafter The photo below shows the car after its restoration to its original color in 2017.
