  • Harbor Freight 1/18 1938 Studebaker truck?

    My latest Harbor Freight flyer listed a die cast 1/18 scale '38 Studebaker truck. This is what I found on their website.

    It looks like an authentic styling of an International! [:0]

        Paul: Harbor Freight indeed did a 1938 K-10 Pickup, along with 5 other diffrent vehicles, for the 2008 Christmas season. It is blue and white, and, DOES NOT sport any logo. The picture in their flyer is NOT the Studebaker of course. If you want one, you'd better hurry. They only did 2,412 total. I believe each store got only 3 or 6 of each vehicle.

          Thanks for the info- a HF run is in the works. I guess their catalog people don't check their pix very carefully.

            I went to Harbor Freight today and found three of the '38 K-10 models. They are as Toyman described. They look smaller than 1/18, but appear to be a pretty faithful reproduction of a K10 (though I'm certainly no expert on those trucks). I'll post pix tomorrow.

              The scale is 1/24th, made by Liberty Classics w/Offices in Libertyville, Illinois. The total number of Studebaker's made: 2147, if memory serves me correctly. Each of the different offerings were produced at this figure.

                Thanks. They did advertize them as 1/18, but they sure are smaller than my 1/18s.
                Here are some pix- first is the picture in their flyer and on their website titled 1938 Studebaker Truck.

                Here is what I bought-



                Maybe the incorrect advertising is why they rang up at $12.99 instead of the advertised $19.99.
