    Possibly Ron Smith, studeclunker on this forum.

    I know someone perhaps more informed, but he is very, very old; and doesn't even know what a computer looks like.

      I am far from being an expert on Studebaker horse drawn vehicles but I do have the largest private collection of literature and memorabilia on them. Should mention also that most surviving Studebaker horse drawn vehicles are not from the 1800's. Some of Studebaker's biggest production years were in the 20th Century 1900 - 1920. In the year 1918 for example 58,830 horse drawns were built compared to only 18,270 automobiles (the figures skewed by war orders). No accurate production figures are available for total production 1852-1920 but Studebaker claimed the total was in excess of 1,000,000 vehicles in a very large variety of styles.

        I believe it was reported that a wagon exited the Studebaker factory every seven minutes in 1913. I could well be wrong.
