Lot #2100 - Long before the company started building powered automobiles in 1902, Studebaker was mass-producing 1/2- to 5-ton horse-drawn vehicles of widely varied configuration. From lightweight "Izzer" passenger buggies to U.S. President William Henry Harrison's personal coach, Studebaker was America's preeminent supplier of non-powered wagons and is the world's oldest manufacturer of highway vehicles. This beautifully restored 1906 Studebaker Gulf petroleum delivery wagon features a riveted iron tank with separate internal compartments for bulk transit of kerosene and two grades of motor oil. The metal box on the tail of the wagon is set up to carry Gulf Red Top axle grease and has a metered dispenser pump. Steel tubing with brass nozzles dispense liquids from under the grease box. Perfect for a museum, auto dealership, theme restaurant/bar or a collector with diverse tastes, a fiberglass horse-pulling team, driver mannequin, numerous Gulf oil tins and standalone signs are included. It is interesting to note that when this oil delivery wagon was new, Studebaker was selling mainly electric vehicles. Its first gasoline-powered car wasn't offered until 1904.
