    Apparently Studes were actually used as police vehicles in RSA 50 years ago.
    Israel had a few Police vehicles whilst Australia had 350 Police cars, both 2 & 4 door door models between 1961 & 1965.

    The Cruiser name was never popular in South Africa. But the Datytona name was, so it was used on top line 1964 models.

    Very cool indeed. Movie was filmed in S Africa. The light blue Lark is definitely right hand drive.
    However! It's only 3 Studes in one scene. The Grey car is NOT a Studebaker.

    I know I've seen a few posts from S Africa. Maybe they'll revisit the forum.
    I should have captured that scene and blown it up. To my feeble eyes it looked like a '61 Lark, but at 3x it clearly is not. Thanks for the correction. In looking more closely it appears that the '64 is also right-hand drive
    I was aware of the "Studies in Movies" thread, but thought this was somewhat different. If a moderator wants to move it to the old thread I have no objection.

    started a topic Studebakers in the upcoming Mandela movie

    Studebakers in the upcoming Mandela movie

    Yesterday we went to see the movie "The Butler". Before it started they ran a trailer for the Mandela movie opening in November. I was surprised to see several Studebakers. At about 1:33 in the video there are four, a finned Hawk, two Larks that appear to be '61s and a white '64 sedan which appears to be a Commander. It appears closer up at about 1:40. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXQsOwBIJ2Y
