This wooden horse-drawn wagon is purported to be an original and authentic beer wagon used by Budweiser in 1950s promotions. According to experts, its design indicates that it was never used as a working beer wagon – those vehicles feature a bowed chassis and body. It was purchased locally by Mr. Guyton from the St. Louis Car Museum. It is described to be in overall solid and very good condition with minor paint wear and flaws that do not detract from what is otherwise an impressive finish and appearance.

Its painted Budweiser Fleet Number 3855 is readily apparent, but there is no visible serial number plate or manufacturer’s identification. Painted an appropriate shade of red, the artillery wheels, axles, and leaf springs are painted a contrasting white with red pinstriping. The company logo is featured on a mirrored background below the seat on the side panels, and the sides of the wagon are prominently lettered with ‘Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St. Louis, Mo.’

Coach lights are fitted, and the seat surround is comprised of a brass rail. The artillery wheels are fitted with rubber tires. This will make for a fantastic static display piece of interest to a variety of hobbyists, including Budweiser collectors.
