Liberty Classics offered this 1922 Studebaker truck.

It seems a little rare,
as not many show up on Ebay.

Its promotion was for a Canadian tire company,
so it might not have been widely available in the US.

It is a very nice model.

Regards, Dave L.

I've changed my model a bit,
by adding spoke wheels instead of the discs.

I am still deciding on a load,
so the crates are removed.

My son added two shelves to my bookcase,

so I can display part of my collection.

Looks like you have at least half a shelf worth of vehicles

looking for parking space...

Jose

I have two more shelves in the bookcase,

that could give me a total of four more display shelves.


Right now I rotate the vehicles out front when I need a change.


I can't reach the rest of the collection now, anyway,

it is stored in the basement.

Regards, Dave L.

One project I always wanted to do,
was chop off the rear of Ertl's 1927 truck,
and make a flatbed or dump truck.

I visualized the cab only on the chassis,
with an overlay of paper,
to get an idea of what it would look like.

Regards, Dave L.

The result would be similar to the project with
the '28 Chevy cab and Graham Brothers chassis.

Only a true vintage truck lover,
would be able to tell the difference.

Looking at the photos above, I wondered if maybe
both Ertl and Liberty Classics used identical hoods.

Putting them side by side,
shows that they are different.

Here's a nice 1927 Graham Brothers truck,
that'd be fun to do.

Its wheelbase is a bit longer,
than the Ertl model's chassis.

:cool:

Here's a GB truck close to the model's chassis length.

The Ertl model is unusual,
because it has a separate chassis and fender casting.
