        Well most of Studebaker wagon sales were in the west and overseas and the hand writing was on the walls so time to say good bye to horse drawn productin. A good Stude decision especially producung many wagons for use in WW1.

            Actually, it was a momentous occasion to sell the wagon producing part of the business. The "brothers" weren't really SOLD on the idea of self-propelled autos. As it was they only built electric cars at first and the gasoline powered vehicles were built with the help of E.M.F.
            Thank goodness they finally saw the light and bought into the idea that automobiles were the way to go.
            Lucky for us too.

                    The patterns, blueprints, finished wagons, parts and stock were sold to the Kentucky Wagon Company of Louisville. When the sale occurred in 1921, the BOD approved the use of the Studebaker name on the wagons for a period of time as long as the original patterns and designs were utilized. They were Kentucky wagons, but labeled as "The Studebaker Model" allowing them to take advantage of Studebaker's reputation and name recognition.

                    I believe the agreement was extended into the late '20's and allowed Studebaker to continue to derive income from the sale. The irony is that Kentucky actually dabbled with electric and gasoline powered vehicles before shutting down in the mid '30's.

                            I wonder if the Kentucky Wagon Co. later became the Kentucky Trailers they make 18 wheeler trailers, something I need to look into.

                            update, I have e-mailed the Kentucky trailer co. lets see what response I get! Thank you Gary!
