Studebaker Junior wagons were built by the South Bend Toy Company from the turn of the century until World War II.
Originally, they were commissioned to be built as dealer and salesmen scaled samples for the Studebaker Brothers Manufacturing Company.
In the absence of color pictures and brochures of products, it was common for salesmen and dealer showrooms to display scaled models of the full-size products so that customers could see it firsthand.
The cute Studebaker wagons soon took on a new market venture for Studebaker as they became popular kid’s wagons.
The South Bend Toy Company began large-scale production of the Studebaker Junior kid’s wagons that were sold through Studebaker dealers and even sold in the Sears & Roebuck catalogs.
These wagons are custom made and painted per order. Orders are also processed via old-fashioned snail mail with this old-time remote Amish shop.
Please allow 4-8 weeks to build and ship. Painted wagons may take a bit longer.
