The Remarkable St. Louis Wagon Builders

Legacy of legendary St. Louis wagon builders endures.

Gestring Wagon
Located at the Santa Ynez Valley (Calif.) Historical Museum, this Gestring wagon features a 43-inch box width, St. Louis seat risers and contoured woodwork on the spring seat. The third set of sideboards (top box) are original. Designed to slope downward from a near 7-inch height in the front to just over 2 inches at the back of the wagon, they are extremely rare.
