The majestic Budweiser Clydesdales get most of the attention but the wagon they pull is also quite special. The beautiful red Studebaker dates back all the way to 1903! As you can imagine, it takes a lot of maintenance to keep a wagon that old in tip-top shape.
There are many maintenance items constantly required to keep the antique wagon looking its best. First, the wagon has to be dusted to make sure no dirt accumulates. Then the carriage has to be oiled regularly to keep all the parts running smoothly and prevent squeaking. Next the undercarriage and wheels are wiped down to remove dirt and dust that can accumulate during shows.
On a less regular basis, the wagon is given a full wax and paint touch up to give it a super shine that thrills audiences around the country.
So next time you see the Clydesdales, make sure you spend a little time admiring the spectacular, antique Studebaker wagon as well!
