  • 1937 Stude Ambulance model

    Fairfield collectables has a diecast model (product no. 13692NX) of a 1937 coupe express ambulance that they claim was used during WW2.
    Price is $34.99 + tax, shipping, and insurance with a final total of $47+ change. www.fairfieldcollectibles.com or call
    1 800 964 8908 24/7

    I have never heard, seen, or known of such a thing that was made for WW2. Anybody with pics, and info?

      It looks like this is just a ploy to sell another version of their Coupe Express/Hearse model. If they really want to make a version that would generate sales they ought to make a 4-door Dictator and President. I would buy a couple. Studebaker did make horse drawn ambulances which were used in WWI. It is possible that a few of these were still around in WWII.

          There is a resin model kit of a 1937 4 door Studebaker made.
          It is made in Romania and shows up on eBay ever so often. My brother and I bought 5 kits to resell and did back in 2007. I only have one kit now.

            I think it is pretty cool anytime someone produces a die cast Studebaker of any kind. Also, I like this one. However, since the major conflicts that became WWII are generally accepted to have begun in 1939...you'd have to give a wink and a nod that Studebaker would have supplied new Ambulance vehicles sporting a 1937 nose.

                I agree with you, George. I have been a student of Studebakers for 40+ years and have never read of, seen a photo of, nor have been told about a 1937 Coupe Express built for military duty. That claim is pure bull-sheet. I can't imagine a "Coupe Express" ambulance when there were already Commander and President chassis available with experienced ambulance builders on hand. Who would buy a CE chassis and cab and then create a cheaper ambulance for military duty? Don't think Uncle Sam was in that market!
