Mudwagon Stagecoach

While the Concord Stageoach was considered the ‘Star of the Road’, the Mud Wagon was the true work horse. The advantage of the Mud Wagon and the origin of its nickname was the lightness that enabled it to pass over frequently poor "muddy" roads or up steep mountainous slopes. The Mudwagon with its outside framing and "square" body is less expensive to build and durable in service. The body is bolted to iron rockers that, in turn, rest on leather thorough braces. These light semi-enclosed carriers are equipped with canvas or enameled leather storm curtains.
