Staver Carriage

Staver Carriage of Chicago was a manufacturer of carriages and agricultural equipment in the late 1800s but started building cars in 1906. Several models were built over the years but the company quit making cars in 1914. The factory was sold to Studebaker in 1917. This example, photographed at the Owls Head Transportation museum is one of perhaps a half dozen left.

What a fun looking car (as much as anything with 4 wheels can be deemed "fun"). Love the flyscreen. Wonder if that was a factory option or aftermarket?
