Model of Oxford farm wagon

this type of wagon from the 19th century had a waisted front which increased the steering lock of the front wheels. A coupling pole underneath the front and rear undercarriages so that the transmission of the pull from the horse to the rear wheels did not impose a strain on the body of the wagon.
