From Wagon To Avanti

Here's a car that is not often seen. Studebaker had a long history of car manufacture ending with the Avanti -- a personal luxury coupe. The Avanti delivered in early 1962 became the last gasp for Studebaker to remain a viable auto competitor. At the end of 1963, Studebaker closed its doors.

Studebaker started as a wagon manufacturer about 1830 and continued to make wagons until 1920. This conestoga wagon at Scotts Bluff National Monument may have been one of those wagons made by Studebaker.

Studebaker did it all from wagons to horseless carriages to automobiles.
