Indiana State Police 1953 Studebaker Commander Safety Car by Greenlight
Greenlight 1953 Studebaker Commander - Indiana State Police - Hot Pursuit Series 34 - 1-64 No. 42910 A
I earlier today showed on Forum 43, the 1/43 version of this vehicle made by Brooklin. Greenlight has issued a 1/64 version of this car as part of its 34th Hot Pursuit Series.
Here is the image from Greenlight.
I stand corrected!
I was all but convinced that Greenlight was "milking the mold" by creating this "imaginary" Police livery for their 1/64 1953 Studebaker. I mean, really! A small, 2-door coupe with whitewalls no less..... A Police car? "No way! Stupid Greenlight!"
HA! Boy, was I wrong...
I easily found ACTUAL vintage photos of this very car. Who's stupid now?
ME! 🤐 🤐 🙄
Great research on the original photos, Christopher. Thanks.
Many thanks, Christopher. I have wondered about the authenticity of that Brooklin for a long time. Your research solved my doubts. again, thanks.
Greenlight issued a second 1953 Studebaker Commander Coupe Indiana State Police car in green. As to if this is based on an actual car, I do not know.
This also has the Safety Car logo.
@david-green Undoubtedly, that's a "chase car." (..the roof mounted, green-chrome broadcast loudspeakers are the clue).
