I got the photos from a northern Minneapolis suburban historical society looking for help in identifying it (2013). I do have contact information of the owner if you're interested in pursuing it. PM me. I've seen your Jetstreak both before and after your ownership. Looks much nicer now. Thanks for the info on J. Studebaker Boats. This one is definitely a new one to me. Thanks!

Lee, I don't know if you were there when I bought the boat, but it's sure different and I love that small boat. My guess is that it was a sales/dealer sample. Very cool.

Owner had died, was an estate auction. While at the DMV checking on the title to a Volvo that I'd also bought, had them check the numbers still on the boat, came up 1950 Studebaker Mfg Vio Holda, Topeka Kansas.

Another nice score. This right here is the reason my wife won't let me buy a trailer like yours. ;)

Interesting model Lee. I wonder if maybe it was a sales tool for the dealers to display? In any case it'd be cool to own the model and the full scale one.

Boy, am I glad you bought this one! I thought that I was going to have to buy it just so it didn't inadvertently end up at the recyclers. I just don't have room. Back in 2013 I was sent these photos of a small (41" overall length and a 13" beam) from someone looking for information. They thought that maybe it was a toy, but it seemed way to detailed for a toy. I was thinking that perhaps it was a patent model, but at that time I hadn't seen anything like it. When I saw your boat on the "list" it kind of blew me away. This miniature was imprinted "Little Marvel" across the deck. Yours appears to be a perfect match. I have serious doubts about the Studebaker connection. What do you think, does this fit into the equation? And what is the Studebaker thing about? Did the previous owner have any idea?
