This is a very early paddy wagon. Photo from Bill White. As far as I know, Daryl Gushee doesn't own this (but you never know).

Manufactured by Peter Kirsch from Decatur (Indiana) in early 1910s (supposed to be an 1911 vintage).
Not too much on this small manufacturer from 1905 to 1913/16.


This paddy wagon was/is displayed at the NATMUS (National Automotive & Truck Museum of United States) Auburn (Indiana). This is an "assembled" vehicle, parts from others car manufacturers.

Dan Souday has done all the heavy lifting on this one ! This is a 1911 Kirsch. Not only was Dan kind enough to provide the info above, but he also sent a link to a web page on this paddy wagon. There is only one problem: the page is in French ! Not to worry, Dan also provided the translation below ! If that is not going above and beyond, I don't know what is ! Thanks to Bill White for the photos, and a huge thanks to Dan for all his help with this one.

http://www.trombinoscar.com/veterans/kirsch1101.html

Here is Dan's translation:

HISTORY OF THE BRAND <<KIRSCH>> (1905/1916)

     * 1893: Peter Kirsch borned in Germany, moved to Decatur (Indiana) as a carpenter at the age of 30 years
     * 1905: he created his first car, a runabout with a small rear bed, the ancestor of the pickup
     * 1908: he created his second car that has some success in the city so that he intends to make a dozen over the years
     * 1916: a project to build another unit on order, without any trace today
 

WHAT THE MUSEUM SAYS

     * Peter Kirsch built 10 vehicles between 1904 and 1913
     * This one was originally a torpedo, then converted to a school bus and then to a police van
     * Kirsch is an example of "assembled vehicle" parts purchased from others manufacturers depending the specific needs, allowing the "assembler" to badge the vehicle with own his name

By usung higher mathematics Peter Kirsch was only 12 years old when he created his first car. He was one smart fellow. Thanks to all for information. Joe D.
