The Studebaker Corporation, of South Bend, Indiana, introduced the "Big Six" inwards 1922 together with yesteryear 1926 the automobile had earned a reputation for beingness a rigid runner for a reasonable price. This automobile features a 75 horsepower, 6-cylinder engine together with wears Studebaker's "Duplex" trunk - a agency copied later the "California" tops of the previous decade. Apparently these cars were favored yesteryear the southwest's lawmen together with earned the nickname "Sheriff". 

The storey is told inwards The Arizona Sheriff, yesteryear Grover F. Sexton. It states "Twelve of the 14 counties of Arizona furnish the sheriff's constituent amongst an automobile. Every i of these twelve has bough a Studebaker. When this storey came to South Bend, nosotros commissioned Major Grover F. Sexton to catch each of these twelve sheriffs together with run into only what service Studebaker cars were rendering to the people of Arizona. In laurels of Arizona sheriffs who convey made the Studebaker a vibrant symbol of police pull together with order, from the Grand Canyon to Old Mexico, the five rider Big Six Sport Phaeton has been named "The Sheriff."


I wonder if this influenced Jack Sills, the man seen amongst his Studebaker inwards the photograph above, to acquire his car? Mr. Sills founded the Whipple Stage inwards 1922 to render rider vehicle service to soldiers at Fort Whipple inwards Prescott, Arizona. From the sign on the number, it cost xv cents to survive to town. Fort Whipple is instantly the Prescott Veterans Hospital together with Jack Sills's Whipple Stage gave nativity to Prescott Transit which nevertheless operates today.
