This is my Surrey that I bought at an auction in 1992..(It is a Gym Dandy Surrey)....It was sold at Marshall Fields in Chicago in 1941 or 42. I have had a lot of enjoyment with it and my Grandkids rode it when I lived on dead end street. Now I am downsizing and all the grandkids are grown so I will be listing it on Craigs list.
Art Linkletter had one on his show in the 50's and then he endorsed it and any that were made after his show have a logo on them saying they were endorsed by him which means they were made in the 50's.
I hate to part with it but since we are planning to relocate and I know it will take up room in the U Haul I have decided to let someone else enjoy it like we have. The canopy was pretty well worn and I took it off to use for pattern to try and make a new one. The one I tried to make came out to short so I gave up but I still have the original for the new owner to use for a pattern. I will post a picture of it in my selling blog and if anyone is interested they can email me through my selling blog.
I am going to have to keep this post short since I am still having a lot of pain in my back.....I will try and post again as soon as I can
