    I think that Shrock Bros. has issued 2R pickups in their line of models. I have one of their M series pickup models here. It is of excellent quality. Someone that is more into toys/models than I am can give you further information.

            I have a resin cast model of that truck somewhere in the house. Today I found the hood, fenders, tailgate and grille. Sometime in the 70's or 80's there was a guy making Resin Kits of Studebakers.

            There were two versions of the 56J one done with the lower door trim and one without. also a 52 Convertible, a 51 Convertible, a 50 Starlight Coupe and a few others. There are also some "what if" resin kits of Studebakers, like a 53 panel truck, a 53 funny car, again all in resin.


            You can find them on E-bay and they sell for around $45-$65. The Shrock 1/43 scale trucks if I remember correctly were over $200 and the 1/70th scale are about $85. (Check under Frankinstude on E-bay).

                        I forgot to mention something important. These Resin Kits also require a chassis and engine parts from other injection molded plastic kits, like those produced by AMT/Ertl, Revell, Monogrm, and others. In some cases the required kits needed to complete the resin kits might be harder to find than the resin kit itself.

                        On the Shrock kits, you might be able to order your truck in the color it actually was originally painted in. Best thing is to call or E-mail them to find out if they can fill your request. Tom and Dave do not consider their finished products as "models" but as "toys".

                        A Shrock toy is like a Frito Lay Potato chip, betcha you cannot own one.

                        I special ordered one of their 1952 Commander Hard Top as a gift for the publisher of Railroad Model Craftsman. On the cover of many of the books he has published or authored one book on the old Erie Lackawanna RR showed his 52 Studebaker parked in the RR sattion. The left rear rear tire was wide white wall, while the front left was a black wall tire. Tom and Dave repllicated the car and I sent it to him as a gift. About two months later his editorial in RMC was about the Shrock Brothers and other Studebakers in model railroading. It might take 30 to 45 days to get you model/toy, but the wsit is well worth it.

                            Maybe there are still some Miller resin kits out there?
