Studebaker was a waaay old company.  There's a painting of the
Studebaker shop done in 1855, with Studebaker Sr standing in
shirtsleeves but a top hat.  There's also a drawing (done in 1893) of
the shop in 1850

The rest of the story starts in the Gold Rush:  Wheel barrow races are
still called Studebaker races.
