I admit I see here same /vehicle_90494-Plymouth-De-Luxe-P-4-1937.html Comments?
dsl wrote I can see why the Alfa suggestion is made from general shapes. However this is a 4 door saloon and looks identical to the identified Plymouth so is probably the same car (and therefore not an Alfa).
CougarTim wrote I seem to recall it was even implied to be the same vehicle in the movie.

1947 Studebaker Commander Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe
October Sky (1999)
johnfromStaffs ENNever having actually seen any Studebaker in the metal I just did my best. American cars have never sold well in UK as they are generally too big and use too much fuel. 2012-05-09 23:29
1947 Studebaker Commander Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe
October Sky (1999)
Commander 57 USNo, it is not.

The car in the thumbnail is a '47 Champion per grille and hood medallion (and it has an incorrect set of extra bumper guards).
It is also not a Starlight Coupe as it has a divided windshield.
(All Starlight Coupes from '47 on had one-piece windshields.)

Sorry, there are not better views for the Studebaker, but I suspect it could the same one seen on the upper left corner in thumbnail

1947 Studebaker Commander Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe
October Sky (1999)
Commander 57 USNo. Notice the rear bumper is not wrapped.
This is either a '47 or '48.

We know this is a Commander as the only models that had chromed gravel shields in '47/'48 were Champion/Commander convertibles and Regal Deluxe trimmed Commanders.
The bright rocker trim also shows this is a Regal Deluxe model.

A good front or rear view would reveal the precise year.

nzcarnerd wrote Late '40s - early '50s?

Chevrolet 4100 or 4400, if it's a 1 1/2 ton truck. If it's a two ton truck, it's either a 6100 or 6400.

And yes, it is from that period.

Ddey65 USIf this is a half-ton panel truck, it's the 3105. If it's a 3/4 ton truck, it's the 3605. If it's a one-ton truck(which is unlikely due to the wheelbase), it's the 3805.

pilou wrote ??? The Scenicruiser bodies were produced by the GMC Truck and Coach division in the US I have no data of Kässbohrer Setra bodywork


My mistake entirey. Kässbohrer built the Trailways "GOLDEN EAGLE"s, not the Scenicruiser.
I mistook one for the other in my b+w archive.
So this is a 1954 GMC Model PD 4501 'Greyhound Scenicruiser'. Thanks for helping me
to get this finally straight, Pilou!
