I am toying with the possibility of selling a couple of my horsedrawn Studebaker buggies and wonder if anyone at York would be interested in one. I would rather not haul one on speculation, but if someone wanted one I would be happy to deliver it to York.

I would be willing to pass along the one I took to South Bend in '07 for $1500 (kids optional).

I have another I would sell, but it will take me a few days to get to it due to the snow.

I find myself drawn toward horsedrawn conveyances of all kinds. Always enjoy looking at them. I don't know if I would ever be interested in owning any since I don't want horses, and my interests lean toward things that burn fossil fuels and go vroom-vroom and enlarge my "carbon footprint"[:o)] They are beautiful to look at though, in any condition[^] Good luck!

As most folks know, unless I am at a meet you will rarely see a horse drawn Studebaker. For a mere $1500 you can own one, not have to worry about gas and oil (and the requisite leaks) and be guaranteed a trophy at your next meet. No need to fret about a 400 point judging system when you are the only entrant! ;)

That's a very reasonable price on a runabout in this good of condition. How are the wheels, Guido?

They are in pretty good shape, the road bands are tight but there are a couple of spots where the spokes have swelled in the rim.

I'd love to have one to give on loan to our State Fairgrounds' carriage museum. Lots of beauties there, plus an authentic, working blacksmith shop, but Studebaker is thus far not represented. Would if I could!

Pity that. It's not very often that such delicate wheels survive. They looked great in their time, and saved a good fifty pounds (between the four of them) but with steel tyres, they often suffered. Rubber clad tyres were'nt much better. The drawing-in processs was very hard on these delicate rims.

Your vehicle would be an excellent candidate for a museum, since it likely has it's original wheels.
