The 1953 coupe is still one of the most beautiful cars ever designed

I am hoping next time you address the compact model Studebaker offered, I think about 1960. I remember looking at them and admiring them in new car shows, especially a yellow convertible displayed, but can't now pull up the name. I went all the way through DiecastDirect's 1/43rd listing last night, for the first time, looking for 1940 and prior, and, with Brookin offerings, could quickly get into four figures, so got off with a wistful and unfulfilled wish list. Twice I have visited their...

Colorado Hirailer Some of the models like Western and Conquest can get quite expensive. For my money you cant beat American Excellence / NEO resin models They are accurately detailed including the interiors and they are not cheap but they will not brake the bank. There are some like IXO and Best of Show that are in the 35 to 50 dollar range and are vary nice. Route 66 (route66modelcarstore.com) carries some unusual cars but most are north of $200. I intend to feature Larks in my next...

I was just in a Convention Center new car show today.....coupes were few and far between....there was the new $40K!! Alfa-Romeo coupe there. Sitting in the new Camaro reminded me of my ride in an armored vehicle at Fort Knox, with its tiny slits for windows. That car needs a periscope. Sadly, it put a turbo on its four cylinder, as did Mustang last year, yanking it off the table, also. I looked at retro Avanti II's when they were available some years ago...somebody needs to revive that or...

Once again, Studebaker had Raymond Loewy design the '53....commonly referred to as the Loewy Coupe. Just it's low stance put it miles ahead in automotive styling. As yearly revisions progressed, some of the refined first year styling got muddied up....especially the nose/grill. I do wish Loewy's last gasp Avanti had been as low slung, but they chose to work with the Lark platform. Bruce

I have one of those blue 1935 Dictators. I wonder if the 1940 and 1941 Champion differed much in appearance? Studebaker has gotten a bad rap for merging with Packard and going down with it. The ones from prior to WWII I rarely saw on the roads, as a kid, but those from 1950 into the 1960's were common. I did not realize that they were prone to repeat mistakes, Erskine and then Rockne, Pierce Arrow (had not heard before of a Pierce involvment with Stude) and then Packard. I have liked the...

My mind boggles every time I think about naming a car the Dictator. OK, Studebaker had the President, the Commander, etc. - but the Dictator? In the 1930's when Hitler and Mussolini were in the ascendant? Hard to believe. I wonder how well it sold. I also have one of the Brooklin models of the Dictator. Here it is, between a silver top-up version of the Studebaker President roadster and a Hudson Terraplane sedan in green. And here's a blue Pierce-Arrow sedan, next to a Buick coupe. The...

I understand your thinking . But the word Dictator always seemed to be less in rank than President . My father owned a 1950 commander Jim .

The '34 Studebaker Land Cruiser styling was inspires by the '33 Pierce Silver Arrow, The '39 and '40 Champions are almost identical, they were restyled for '41

The Dictator was Studebaker's bets selling model in the early 1930s Remember this was the Depression and when people are financially insecure they have a tenancy to support socialism. By the late '30s the Depression was waning and people were beginning to realize Hitler and Mussolini were tyrants.

The Green Bay & Western scheme and the Berlin Mills Railway scheme has never been produced before. Everybody who has a model railroad theme related to the GBW has to order the box cars. Railroad in Wisconsin and Michigan would have these box cars. Andrew

“Deliver more than promised” Studebaker History Part I Pre WWII Shortly after settling in South Bend Indiana in 1852 the two of the five Studebaker brothers Henry and Clement established a woodworking and blacksmith business. Meanwhile a third brother John M went to California to prospect for gold. He found it more profitable to make wheelbarrows for the miners. By 1858 Wheelbarrow Johnny, as he became known, had amassed a good sum of money and returned to South Bend and invested in his...

Studebaker History Part II Early Post WWII After WWII ended in August 1945, Auto makers rushed to refit their factories for automobile production. They were hampered by labor strikes and shortages of materials. Studebaker got into production in January 1946. The only model was the Skyway Champion essentially an mildly updated prewar model. By the fall of that year they were building the all-new post war1947 model. These cars were unlike anything seen before They had full width bodies that...
