Does anyone know...

I think that this is one of the most beautiful trucks ever made. I have never seen a kit offered, and I'm wondering if any of you know if there is a resin offering of the 1955 Studebaker pickup.

Boss 9 Roadster

13 October 2013 - 11:01 AM

There was never a "On the Workbench" for this car as I wasn't a member here when I built it. In fact I have lots of build photos but at that time I was using a film camera! So I guess I'd have to do some scanning of old photos, but I'd really just like to share the finished product with y'all. I grew up in a Ford family and before I understood the economics and tradition of building an old Ford with a Chevy engine I hated the fact that all you saw were mouse motors in Deuces, unless it was a flat head. So this car has an R & D Unique stage III frame, a Monogram roadster body, a Boss 429 from a Glidden kit, a C-6 auto trans from a Fairlane GTA kit, and lots of scratchbuilt fuel system, wiring, and brakelines. It has a dry sump system, tranny mounted alternator, and the tranny cooler is mounted on the bottom of the trans. The exhaust is BB Chevy manifolds and aluminum tubing, Apologies for going on and on, here's the car.

The frame is Tamiya sky blue, the body is an attempt at teal using a mixture of blue metallic and green laquer.

Hi From Sheffield Lake, Ohio

My name is David Price, my friends and family know me as Tim. My father was in the automobile business and I have been involved with cars for most of my life. I'm an automotive professional with more than 30 years of auto dealer experience. I build kits based on cars that have left an impression on me through the years, and sometimes I just get a bug about a car or truck that I would like to own and build it based on that. I started out building in the 70's, lost interest when I started driving and dating, then began to build again around 1990. I don't do too much scratch building these days, but I like to detail what I build with paint, wiring and plumbing which I base on research. My favorite subjects are '32 Fords, 1960's vintage road race cars, and cars from the 1960's in general.
