I found this on a shelf in the shed today and wonder if anyone knows what model or year this Studebaker step plate is from, thank you, Bob

You do realize they made wagons and buggies before cars? I know a fellow who has a wagon,still has the data plate on it.

Jack - You beat me to it! I was going to suggest that because John Studebaker built wagons and buggies for about 50 years before even considering building automobiles, that there might be a good reason that the step plate pictured looks like it was originally used on a horse drawn vehicle, and I'm sure it was! Talk about a great "wall-hanger", that's a real "keeper" Bob!

As an "aside", the book about the life of John Studebaker, who's career started with helping an old fellow build wheelbarrows for the California Gold Rush '49'ers is one of the most interesting books I've ever read!

This looks like it could be from a Stagecoach. These steps where between the front and rear axles just below the doors and were quite long.
