Prototype History:
Budd was one of the leading producers of lightweight streamlined passenger cars during the postwar period. The corrugated design permitted extra strength to the car sides. Budd built many different designs such as sleepers, coaches, dome cars and diners. The cars were built from stainless steel.

The most popular of the sleeper designs was the 10-6 configuration. This means that the car had 6 double bedrooms and six roomettes. The smaller roomette is a dual purpose room (typically 4' by 6') with two facing seats. These can be reconfigured to form a bed, while a second bed can be folded down from the ceiling. The larger double bedroom was closer to 7' by 7' and also can be reconfigured for daytime or sleeping use.
Road Name History:
Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.

Brand/Importer Information:
Con-Cor has been in business since 1962. Many things have changed over time as originally they were a complete manufacturing operation in the USA and at one time had upwards of 45 employees. They not only designed the models,but they also built their own molds, did injection molding, painting, printing and packaging on their models.

Currently, most of their manufacturing has been moved overseas and now they import 90% of their products as totally finished goods, or in finished components. They only do some incidental manufacturing today within the USA.

Important Note: The Con-Cor product numbering can be very confusing. Please see here in the article how to properly enter Con-Cor stock numbers in the TroveStar database.
