  • 1:18 Studillac Model

    Rather than flood lstude's thread with my pics, I started my own. I had to borrow Dad's camera, as mine doesn't do well with closeups.
    Anyways, here's the 1:18 Studillac I made myself, starting with a 1:18 '53 Commander Starliner and a 331 Caddy motor off eBay.

    Enjoy!

        Actually, I want people to post their work on my thread and keep it going with Studebaker models sort of like the way the Phantom Stude thread is going. You did a great job with the Studillac. I lightened some of the photos, so I could see the details better. The engine looks good, but I think the Studillac had a 4 barrel. I also repainted one of those 1:18 Studebakers to match a 53 that a friend of mine had in high school with a cream body and blue top. I also widened the whitewalls

                Thanks guys.

                Don't worry lstude, I just took a few more pics of a couple of my other customized 1:18 scale Studes.

                Yes, the real Studillacs had four barrels. The carb I put on the model is the one from the '53 Stude 232. The 331 didn't have one, just a big oil bath breather that didn't fit under the hood of the Stude.

                    Matthew,
                    You're an all-round Stude enthusiast. I don't know if there's any hope for you. You'll just have to succumb to Stude mania.
                    Nice work.

                        Thanks Rog. And no, there's no hope. But, is there really anything wrong with that?

                            The '54 Commander Starliner Studillac I saw in the 70s had two four-barrels. It was a rough, unrestored original.
