Studebaker Atlantic custom concept

Recommended Posts

Really nice Studebaker. It kinda reminds me of a Thom Taylor or a Steve Stanford design.

I like this one a lot.  Really nice work!

Also, your color choices were perfect!

Thank you Keith!

History tells us he was not an easy person to work with... but judging by his work, nonetheless  an influential designer. How many cars drawn after WW2 are still looking mostly contemporary to our jaded eyes? The 53 Stude is certainly among them. 

I'm building a roadster version today, in the "less is best" philosophy. I'll post it here when completed.

Hi Mr. Woodruff!

Well, from one of the original luminaries, it is quite a compliment! I could not ask for more...

There's a lot of inspiration here. I can't get past the slope of that windshield, which kind of throws a wrench in the works, but all the rest is inspiring. Beautiful body and paint.

Hi Mike!

Actually, a friend on a model forum (Koolestkruzers.com) in France felt the same about the rake of the windshield... But it is the actual Chrysler Atlantic Concept angle... I just transplanted it on the Stude body, with the alterations described in the intro of this post.

Very nice flow in the lines. I guess that if someone tried to bring back Studebaker today, this is how they would look. Nice!
