1902 Electric Studebaker Delivery Carriage

In the 1850’s, three brothers John, Clem and Henry worked in their father’s wagon repair business in the east. They went out west to find their fortune in California’s gold rush. They failed at that but did see a demand in the mines for wheelbarrows.

In 1868, the Studebaker Co. was organized and by 1875 was the largest wagon manufacturer in the world.

In 1902, the company started making horseless electric carriages and in 1904 gasoline powered vehicles. The rest is history.

This is a recreation if the first electric Studebaker from 1902. Made of solid mahogany and brass.
