In 1980 Shrock Body Shop built a custom 1940 Studebaker President Boat-tailed Speedster
with a rumble seat. This one of a kind Studebaker
has been featured in several publications including the Studebaker Drivers Club magazine Turning Wheels. In 1982 the brothers restored a 1935 Studebaker Commander roadster that was featured in the movie The Color Purple. This car is currently on display in the Studebaker National Museum
in Southbend, Indiana. The first original toy designed by the Shrock Brothers was the 1:43rd scale model of the 1940 President Boat-tail Speedster. In 1988 a line of 1:55th scale toys was introduced to reduce the overall complexity of the assembly process. In 1994 a line of 1:72nd scale toys was introduced in the continuing effort to reduce the overall assembly complexity while maintaining a high level of detail & finish. Some Shrock Brothers' Avanti miniatures are shown below. The models are constructed from pewter with a hand rubbed acrylic enamel finish. The windows are vacuum-formed from butyrate sheets and the bright parts are cast from the same Brittania used in custom jewelry.
