Studebaker started out in the wagon business half a century before the automobile age. They provided presidential carriages to President’s Grant, McKinley and Harrison. The Studebaker brothers had an appreciation for history and started a company collection, eventually acquiring the carriage that the Marquis de Lafayette rode in when he toured America in the 1820s, and the even more historic carriage that was President Abraham Lincoln’s personal conveyance. He rode to Ford’s Theater in it on the night he was shot and it carried him to a nearby home where a doctor tried to save his. During the restoration, Lincoln’s personal monogram was revealed. Also in this video are commemorative wagons that Studebaker made for centennial expositions. If you’d like to see another horse drawn presidential vehicle, the Henry Ford Museum has Teddy Roosevelt’s brougham, displayed with their collection of presidential cars.
