    James,
    I hope you picked up a few apples to munch on while going through Wenatche! I did that (and also dined at Studebaker's in Cashmere) after my visit to your fabulous diner & museum three years ago. That vehicle looks great!

        That is one sweet looking Wagon and one of a kind, beyond rare.

        Great Pictures of the entire process of the final assembly and picking the Wagon up at Jerry's. Stephanie is to be congratulated on some really FINE progress photos.

        I guess I really missed a lot by getting sick on Sat. and not making it to the Museum and Diner for the open house and Wagon unveiling. But once you get into those ER's you never get out for 4 or 5 hours at least.

        Glad to see that Dave was able to help between his multiple trips to Los Angeles.

          To settle a discussion with friends...
          Studebaker had no connection with the Baker Electric Car Co. Of Ohio. Right?
          While growing up here in Pitman, there was a little elderly lady who would drive a Baker Electric least once a week well into the 1960's. Always had a 1950 NJ plate on it, police never bothered her.
          This how the conversation got started with some childhood buddies.
          To all involved in saving and restoring this Studebaker Electric...Job well done!

            Yes, Baker Electric was a completely different company.

            Dwain, we got the first load in the wagon when Joan came out and placed fresh produce in the wagon from their garden to take home.
            The picture of the truck was only about a mile away from Cashmere with the river behind the truck and apple orchards in front of it.
            Studebaker's Restaurant is no longer there (it got sold to 49er Diner).


            We may not be able to bring our electric wagon to St. Louis Meet, but it wouldn't be the only one that's ever been there -

              Thank you James! It's rare I'm right.
              Have to say, this post of your Studebaker Electric is among one of the best!
              I thank you for sharing with us.

                James I have been watching the wagon rebuild with great interest, fantastic job. I look forward to the video of it's first drive. It's a pity Studebaker didn't build steam cars, that would have married my two great loves.

                  A St. Louis Bank also had the attached special Studebaker Electric Money Wagon driving around town.

ID:	1705463 Just thought I'd share My Thomas A. Edison Nickle Cadmium Storage battery for the Studebaker Electric Cars. This One is in amazing working shape and is right down the road From the Bells, in Sedro Woolley, WA. Yes James Bell, I would like to see Your car. I did see that Your original post said Your Electric Wagon is a 1902, Thomas A. Edison didn't have His Storage batteries available to the General public until 1903. FYI.

                        • James! I was wondering what type of Battery array are You using in Your Electric Car? Would You be interested in the Original Thomas A. Edison set for Your car?

                          • Studebaker may have used something like this in their Cars, but James' is a Electric Wagon, and definitely would be used as a Truck.

                            Interesting, if those Seven Cells were 2 Volts each, you would have 14 Volts!

                            The Wagon requires 48 Volts.

                            • This set of batteries is the spare set that came from an estate that had an early Studebaker electric car, The buyer didn't take them as the original set had Studebaker stenciled on the battery box! but true these came from a buggy type two seater electric Studebaker car.

                                Is that the older Type 'E', or the much improved Type 'A'?
