Studebaker has been around since brother Henry and Clem joined to build three covered wagons in 1852. All five Studebaker Brothers participated in the affairs of the firm over the years.

J. M. "Johnny" Studebaker was running the company in 1902 when The Studebaker Brothers Mfg. Co. when it began building American Automobiles.

Studebaker built only electrics as J. M. Studebaker hated gas powered automobiles. He called gas powered cars clumsy, dangerous, noisy and a public nuisance. The first Studebaker Electric was a true horseless carriage sporting a body that was of buggy design and electrically designed by Thomas A. Edison.

But even John Studebaker bowed to the inevitability of the gasoline engine. The General Automobile Company of Cleveland made automobiles for Studebaker in 1903. In 1904 The Garford Company began Studebaker chassis production. A chassis with engine and drive train was produced by Garford and Studebaker assembled the rest of the automobile in South Bend, Indiana. Studebaker manufactured Studebaker-Garford cars from 1904 to 1910.

The Everett-Metzger-Flanders Company was incorporated under the laws of Michigan, August 4, 1908. The company was organized to manufacture and market in large quantities a medium-priced gasoline propelled automobile. Promptly after the organization of the E-M-F Company, Studebaker made an arrangement with it under which Studebaker obtained certain exclusive rights to sell the product to be known as Studebaker E-M-F and Studebaker-Flanders. Studebaker shortly afterwards acquired substantial stockholdings in the company and in the following year purchased the remaining stock and became sole owner of the business. The E-M-F Company was merged into The Studebaker Corporation as of December 31, 1910.
