  • 1949 Commander Starlight coupe National Products model.

    At a recent toy show in Kalamazoo, MI, I bought a National Products model of a 1949 Commander Starlight coupe, for $35.
    I also bought a 1957 Golden Hawk bank at that show.
    The little red '53 Starlight coupe was purchased through Ebay. Made in Italy.

      The hood emblem on the '53 looks just like the one on the '54 in the recent episode of The Simpsons. Neither of them the correct V or Tri-star.

        The grilles and lithographed side sweeps on the body, the vent doors on the fenders, and the correct location of the gas filler door, indicate to me that the toymaker was inspired by the '53 Studebaker coupe.
        Close enough for this amateur. I can't afford a real Studebaker, so I collect/make models of them.

            I think they are awesome little models. Nice that they found a good caretaker.
