Studebaker Columbian Expositon Wagon

2 posts in this topic

This wagon is now on display at the Studebaker Museum in South Bend, Indiana. It was created especially for the 1893 Columbian Exposition. The box is rosewood inlaid with holly, and all the metal fittings (except the iron tires and springs) are solid aluminum (149 pounds total). It took 4000 man hours to complete at a cost of $2110.65, and is inset with 35 medals won by the Studebaker company during the preceding 40 years. It is fully restored, including replacing some of the lettering and one of the medals that was lost.
