Footnotes

  • Wagon makers since the middle of the 19th Century, the Studebaker brothers of South Bend, Indiana had been active in commercial vehicle manufacture long before the arrival of the 'horseless carriage'. The Studebaker Brothers Manufacturing Company built its first automobiles in the early 1900s using chassis supplied by A L Garford of Elyria, Ohio; indeed, up to 1911 cars were marketed under the 'Studebaker-Garford' name. In 1908 Studebaker commenced an association with the E-M-F company, whose cars it marketed, eventually taking over the Detroit-based manufacturer in 1910 to form the Studebaker Corporation, at which time the link with Garford was broken. By this time the range consisted of a brace of fours of 40 and 30 horsepower. Studebaker's big news for 1913 was the arrival of its first six-cylinder automobile - the Model E - recognised by historians as the first mass-produced 'six' to have its cylinders cast en bloc. For 1916 the four-cylinder Studebaker's engine was enlarged to 235.6ci (3,862cc) having been 192.4ci (3,154cc) previously, while bodies were restyled with smoother lines. Studebaker continued to offer four-cylinder models up to 1920 when the range became sixes only.
    This handsome and stylish Studebaker carries two-door landau roadster coachwork, which was one of only two body styles available on the four-cylinder chassis for 1914, the other being a four-door tourer. Production of four-cylinder Studebakers amounted to 17,976 that year. The car comes with a history sheet produced when the current owner entered it in the 'Pride of Ownership' display at The London Classic Motor Show at Alexandra Palace in March 2001. This sheet states that the Studebaker was supplied new in 1914 by Ansteys Garage of Maidstone, Kent and purchased by a member of staff at the US Embassy. Stored during 1914-1918, the car was re-commissioned in 1919 and stayed in use until 1923, by which time it had covered only 8,000 miles but had become outdated. The Studebaker remained in storage until its discovery by a VCC member in 1947 and subsequently was restored. It is said to have covered some 18,000 miles by March 2001 and was last taxed for the road in 2006. We are advised that the engine turns over and that the gears select. There are no registration documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
