Can You Identify This Buckboard?

A few weeks ago, we highlighted some of the challenges with identifying western vehicle types.  (See October 9, 2013 blog)  In that post, we profiled an Arizona buckboard built by Studebaker.  In doing some further research, we’ve uncovered a number of additional buckboard styles.  So many, that the perception of a ‘simple’ buckboard could easily become a misnomer.
Understanding that western buckboards came in a variety of styles, below is another image showcasing one of these vehicles.  Can you provide the proper name for this specific buckboard?  We’ll give you a hint by relaying that this, as with our October 9th blog, was also built by Studebaker.  Looking forward to hearing from you and, as with the last post, we’ll be happy to credit all correct answers.

Good luck!
