Help!!! I need some information a two person horse drawn sliegh that my step father just bought to finish restoring. It was made by the McLaughlin Carriage Co. LTD. Oshawa Canada. Can any one help me in dateing this sliegh? Please guid me to a good source. We bought it from a friend who restores antique cars. He had a customer who asked him to restore it in 1989. The guy got divoriced and left him with it and the bill. So if any one can help thanks.

Dave if you are near Oshawa I think there is a museum there with a lot of GM stuff they should help you. Sam McLaughlin started the GM plant there when he switched from building horse drawn vehicles to building Buicks. The shape of the dash board is the best indication of age, straight up on later ones swan neck on early ones I believe.

This is the place for horse farming/logging and buggys - slieghs. All kinds of good info on horse drawn implements.

I saw a post over on the Country People "Trading Post" board that a guy in Ohio had a one horse sleigh for sale. He may be able to help you.
Sorry I can't, but all the sleighs in this neck of the woods require wheels. Good luck.

It's older than the first Buick that old Sam built, that is when he changed the company name.
