Knapheide is one of the oldest manufacturers in the US. They began their humble beginnings with wagon manufacturing in 1848. They were popular for their craftmanship and customization. It has belonged to the family through six generations and is going strong. In 1910, the third generation entered the automotive field. The Model-T arrived, and they modified it with a wagon body. In 1932, the Great Depression threatened their livelihood. They stood strong and managed to make it through on less than $15,000 in sales. That same strength has carried through to the current day. They still focus on quality craftmanship, customization, and customer care. When times get hard, they do what they must to survive.
