  • Studebaker Brougham at Martin's

    This Brougham is available for the next auction at Martin's. I'm not sure if it's the spring auction in Penn or the CA auction. I can ask Pam if anyone is interested.



    Not a very good picture. Pam has promised to ask the owner for a better one. This vehicle should go from a grand to ten grand depending upon the condition. Even in the fuzzy picture it appears to be in fairly good condition.

    Ron,

    Their website did not shed any light on this. Can you get more info?

        Now Guido... you're supposed to be reducing your inventory. Arent you? Just kidding.

        Here's the text of Pam's message:
        quote:Surprise! I can't believe it but I received a contract for a Studebaker Brougham today for our April auction. The photo I received isn't a very good one, I am going to try to get a better one from the owner but I've attached what I received for you. If I receive a better photo I will forward it to you.
        Warm regards,

        Keep in mind this is a high-end vehicle. It's coachman driven and quite heavy. Still, it can be pulled by a single coach (read that smart looking LARGE) horse. A pair of somewhat smaller or finer horses look quite smart to it also. The Brougham was a very popular 'gentleman's or doctor's' vehicle of the nineteenth century because it was inexpensive to turn out yet elegant. They're extremely manoeverable and due to a fully under-cut carriage (chassis to you car people) and low centre of gravity they're very stable. It would be very handy for that wedding where the weather didn't cooperate.

            Well at least it is on the proper coast. May be worth going up to take a look if for no other reason than to meet people in the trade.

                Actually, when it comes to horse-drawn vehicles, you are on the best coast. The selection has always been best in the east coast area. Most of the best companies for maintenance and repair, harness, and the many necessary accoutrements of carriage driving are in your area. That is to say, in a two hundred mile radius of where you're located. Whilst you're up there in Lebanon PA, stop by the Smucker's harness shop. They're the best for that kind of thing. They also always have a deal for first timers available.

                Honestly though, Guido, you need a two-wheeled carriage to start off with. That is to say, if you ever intend to use them. A nice Road Cart or Gig would be a great, worry-free, beginner's vehicle. There's nothing nicer than enjoying a quiet drive on a country road with an equine friend. Try it, you just might get hiched, I mean, hooked.
