    I sent a note about this to Guido. Never heard if he looked into it. It might be a nice find for the museum.

        Carroll Studebaker had a Studebaker wicker goat cart or pony cart at Gettysburg in 1980. It was previously owned by Dwight Eisenhower, who retired to his farm in Gettysburg after his Presidency. I would post a picture but I can't scan my 60mm slides.

            Scott,

            I have been meaning to e-mail you back. This is the second wicker example that I have seen. A bit pricey for my tastes plus I would need to get it back to Virginia. Thanks for the head's up though.

                This kind of vehicle is called a Sailor's wagon. They were named such because of the popularity amoungst the livery stables in port cities. They were typically pulled by large ponies or cobs. This made them a sporty, inexpensive, and speedy vehicle. Small light and fast they were popular with the sailors. As a restored vehicle it's an excellent example. Because of the wooden construction, especially the wheels and chassis, there's a tremendous amount of hand work, thus expense in restoration. So the price seems just about in line with the vehicle, though a bit on the high side.
