  • Nice 2R die cast truck.

    I just got home from the store and saw a new (at least to me) 1950 Studebaker truck die cast model. Very nice detail. The cost was about $3.50.

    See it here:

    Now if only Hot Wheels would reissue the Avanti in their main (cheap) range...I'd like to get about 20 of them to give out at car shows.

    There are quite a few different versions of this truck from M2. They have been out for a couple of years and keep coming out with new ones.

      The M2 Studebaker trucks are very nice for the price. They don't last long on the shelves at stores around here.

        Agree with all the responses above. There have been several issues of this by M2 so far. I haven't seen the blue one that's pictured yet. Thanks for the heads up.

          This truck is an R2 not an M2.

            "M2" is the brand name of the models (like "Matchbox" or "Dinky"); the trucks are indeed R-series, both 2R and 3R models having been released. M2 make a very wide variety of 50s-era cars and trucks in 1:64. They're fairly rarely seen here in Ontario, and it's taken me a while to accumulate four or five of the Stude trucks.
