One Horse Is All You Need: Studebaker Sleigh

While I was hunting for the perfect Christmas sleigh, I came across this really amazing sleigh. Long before Studebaker was building unique cars, they were building carriages and even sleighs. This 2 seat sleigh is from the late 1800’s, well at least that’s what the seller believes, and is definitely the oldest Studebaker barn find we’ve ever seen. I’m no sleigh expert, so if you happen to know more about this one, let us know. You can find this barn find can be found here on eBay in Lebanon, Pennsylvania with a BIN of $5,500.

    And all this time I just thought it was old cars that were overpriced.

    Wow, gorgeous. Look at the carved woodwork on the sides. It belongs behind a trotting horse on a snow covered road. I would love to own this.

    Sleighs are very fun vehicles, many survived in remarkable condition because they get so little use. When I was in the carriage business, most wound up with small wheels on the runners so they could be used on dry ground. I think late 1800’s or early 1900’s is the correct date of manufacture. Studebaker had enormous catalogs of available vehicles so dates can be difficult to pinpoint. Unfortunately, highest and best use for these today is simply as a fun display vehicle. I still have the horses that could power it but horses don’t do much better on slick roads than cars do. We do weld studs on shoes that can help but not worth the risk to either the horse or vehicle to me.

      Excellent point Dave. I never gave a thought to how a horse got around on slick roads.

    All I can think of is Doctor Zhivago!
