  • Studebaker Mail Cart?

    Did Studebaker make mail delivery equipment?

    Could this be of Studebaker manufacture?

    Just curious. (It's in Iowa)

    Jeff,

    I do not think Studebaker ever built railway baggage carts. I bought one at auction around 1973 and think I paid $25 or $30 for it. I sold it to a buddy of mine and have no idea what became of it. You may find more info at a railroading site.

        According to this list on the Studebaker Grand March, they did make railway carts.

            I had just posted this about a month ago. Here are some more wagons they made.





            Studeclunker said it was an incomplete list, but there are a lot of different types.

                I knew where there were three of them in West Virginia. I ended up buying a '63 8E-28 truck from a gentleman who was the former station master at Union Station in Washington and he had them behind his house. A "friend" who accompanied me on a trip there took an acquaintance by and bought all three before I could get back to get them. [xx(]

                    Whoa Dobbin! That pic that Carey posted from the Denver Museum! There's the original Zip Van!

                    Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

                    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                    1960 Larkvertible V8
                    1958 Provincial wagon
                    1953 Commander coupe
                    1957 President two door

                    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                      I don't talk with him often now, but I also no longer take him on road trips. I can't distance myself too much as he has a factory Stude 4x4.

                        An RFD mail carriage and a "mail" dock cart are not the same animal, though. Everybody has seen dirty laundry in a "gurney"; big post offices still have dock carts called "nutting trucks" (interesting folk etymology on that one).

                        Those look like inventions of the coach builder J.Gurney Nutting (who had something to do with Rolls and Bentley, built the Campbell LSR cars, and are still in business). But they aren't.

                        Mr. Gurney built horse cabs in Boston in the 1880's. Nutting Caster, of Faribault MN, still makes dock carts. Even in this age of air-jet conveyors, some days you still need a buggy whip. Studebaker didn't quit making wagons until after Wheelbarrow Johnny was dead, and the wagon division was still making money when they left the field.
