Buffalo Springfield

Post #1 by sdarmstrong » Sun Feb 18, 2018 1:53 pm

This is a rather old girl I have recently saved . It will be fully restored when my current restoration of a Wallis and Steevens roller is complete. This one is an American Buffalo Springfield from the early 40’s it seems . Any one know anything about them ? How it may have come to be on our side of the world ? Sent over during ww2 perhaps ? Any info , literature , links or ideas appreciated.

Good luck with it David :thumbup: I'm only guessing here but it could have come over during the war in order to facilitate the building of runways?

That’s what I’m thinking as well . Hopefully someone will come wandering here that has some knowledge on them .

Thats something different

I would also guess it came over during WW2 may have came over maybe with the US air crews or as already stated came over to support the war effort
