Lagerquist Carriage Co. - Lagerquist Auto Co. - 1890s-1930s - Des Moines, Iowa
|The Lagerquist Auto Company of Des Moines, Iowa was another regional
coachbuilder (originally the Lagerquist Carriage Company) who experimented with early automobile production (1909),
but primarily produced commercial vehicle bodies which included a few hearses and ambulances. Run by brothers Henry
and Hugo Lagerquist, they produced a number of handsome coaches on customer-supplied chassis such as Buick and
Lincoln in the late Twenties.
For 1929, Lagerquist coaches featured padded roofs and large rounded-corner rear quarter windows similar to those found on Ford's 1939-1940 Fastback Sedan. Chassis were determined by the customer and included stretched Chevrolet and Ford AA Light truck chassis.
