I usually like Studebakers stock appearing or a solid color, but this car that was on Facebook grabbed my attention.

Like the design, but not the colors chosen. Never was a fan of dark top, light bottom. Always seems to unbalance the car visually.

I think flipping the colors may be part of why it stands out. Of course, the color is not stock either.

I like the idea, but like others, not the contrast color. I think for that solid white car with only the side stainless and a small hood ornament, silver in the area now gold, and leave the top white. But that's just my druthers.

If it's just a white car setting there, not much to catch ones eye. The splash of color will catch your eye and draw attention to the car. I like it personally.

Dean.

The mirrors are definitely not one of the cars best features, but I guess they work.

Of course, the color is not stock either.

It could be a local Australian color combination.

Uhhhh, no it's not. But it is one of mine!!! :!:

I especially like the addition of the '56 President trim to this '58 Scotsman.
I always have. In fact it's something I would do.
I've even got a bunch of the pieces to do so.
Maybe it'll go on Betsy the Parkview one day...?

Nice job. I wouldn't have chosen those colors, but the job was well executed.

No. Those (and the hood ornament) are from 1957.
But not a Scotty.


Where is the info that says its a Scotsman ?
There isn't any. But the clues are there~ The first one is the grille. It's clearly a '58 Scotty grille. The '57 Scotty's was much more like the rest of the '57 line. The second (and most obvious) is that flat roof. All the '58 sedans got a flatter roof in '58.

Compare that car to my '57s~

The one on the truck is a Commander Deluxe.
The one on the 'hook' is a Champion Custom.

I kinda like It too, wonder how It would look with a Third Color for the Top ? I always thought of these as the "Gun Stock Studes"
