One of only seven steel frame Mountain Wagons in existence, this early version of the modern sport utility vehicle would have been used in resort hotels such as the Stanley Hotel and other New England Hotels. This Mountain Wagon was owned by the Rocky Mountain Transportation Company and was used in Estes Park, Colorado. When guests arrived by train, they were easily transported, their luggage stowed in the back in lieu of the very last seat. All seats could be removed, but with seats, the vehicle provided "extreme comfort" over harsh roads. Quick-acting curtains provided additional comfort to guests traveling in the Mountain Wagon. The Mountain Wagon's original paint color was Valentine's Uzatona Red. Pinstriping would not have been seen on original Mountain Wagons as the nature of the vehicle was utility, rather than pleasure. The steel frame Mountain Wagon, produced only in 1915 and 1916, allowed for a more rugged, stronger vehicle than earlier Mountain Wagon frames, which were made of ash wood.
