Because the coupe was so attractive, orders were more numerous than predicted. However, the sheet metal work for the coupe was difficult to fit together, which slowed the production process to the point where people who wanted the coupe could not readily get one. This cost Studebaker a lot of potential sales. In fact, production problems were a major problem for Studebaker and were a key reason why the company failed in the 1960s.
This model Franklin Mint is more than 20 years old, but still delivers highly detailed features. It shape is perfect. Franklin's Studebaker captures Commander's glamor, its shape and exotic nature in detail.
The finish is exquisite from the glossy Rust Red paint scheme to the opening doors and hood. The model has great details the actual car: V8 logo, chrome fin rear fenders and chrome conical shape wheel covers.
It is not difficult to get this nice and interesting model for a reasonable price on ebay auction. This cost £16,00 plus post, which is fantastic value for money!
