U.S. War Ambulance

What an awesome find!! A U.S. Army War Ambulance in great original condition. Made by Studebaker--stamped on the army-approved Archibald hub and numbered it was made for the Winkler-Grimm Co. of South Bend, Indiana, dating from the late 1880's to early 1900's. These ambulances were made for the Civil war, the Spanish American War and shipped overseas for World War I for England. The tale of Charles Goodnight, the Texas rancher and developer of the chuckwagon, used an an old Studebaker military ambulance wagon in 1866 as the first chuckwagon for his cattle drives. The heavy (it weighs 2100lbs) very durable wagon could hold up to the rigors of the trail, although it took 6 oxen to pull it--being too much for 2 or 4 horses or mules. This wagon is as mint or better than any I have found only in musuems. I welcome your inquiries, and delivery might be available to limited areas. The pictures show the original paint, (has not been oiled,) the back step with ironwork, the fold down cots inside, the cot on the side, brakes, tongue, and doubletrees, all there also. I also have the original lantern that would have hung in the middle of the canvas top (obviously not still around) Beveled glass, no cracks. Original to this wagon. In the last years, these original vintage rare wagons have disappeared, but interest and value has remained strong with true Old West collectors.
