Orient Buckboard #3721

Just a note the First car registered in British Columbia was a Orient in 1904 to a Mr. Barnsley.
My orient was brought to BC in 1918 by a Mr. Hinchy, an Anglican Minister who moved from Nanton, Alberta to Galena Bay BC.  There were no roads built in this area until the 40s ( the area was served by paddle wheelers and so the car stayed in a barn until his death.  It then went to a friend of the family who stored it for 35 years, I acquired the car in the 1990s and restored the car it had many pieces missing including the rear axle (found in Montana) wheels (I made ) Tiller (I received from Vince Chimera) The serial number is 3721 and the engine type ( upper portion that is air cooled is an earlier type 1904)
