    That's the kind of wagon I've always wanted to own. I don't know how I would drive it seeing that I don't currently own any horses, but one of these day I want to get a farm wagon. I agree, the price is WAY off. I'm not so sure it would bring that much if it was restored to museum quality.

    I wonder if that's original paint.
    I know nothing about wagons...and not much about horses.
    But if it's that original, I think the price might be fair...(but then again, for all I know there might be dozens of the darn things around....but I doubt it).

    I agree...he's waaaaaay off in price. That's a nice wagon chassis, but no where near that kind of money. The wheels and hubs are pretty tired, pole is wrong (not really a big deal...I make new ones as needed) and he's missing part of the tailgate. There was one that was a bit nicer and a lot more solid at an auction I was at in OR a couple years ago, that brought about $1000. The paint on the running gear and box appears original. They could drop a "0" off that price and they'd probably get some offers...... if someone gives that kind of money, they need to call me and I'll line them up on a few more!!

    Maybe the seller forgot to mention it comes with some horses too . . .

    I have very rarely seen any Studebaker horsedrawn wagons advertised for less than $2000. They are always much more expensive than you would think. Just like the pickup trucks. Still, $10,000 is too much. I'd say closer to $3000 given what I've seen over the years...even though I would not think it should really be worth more than half of ​that!
