  1. This same Studebaker Avanti was owned by Tommy and Bob Tompkins in the '70's.....It was in 'as new' condition back then, winner of several auto show trophies!

    Goodbye Sherwood!

    Sorry, ....November is not correct!

    Avanti Woman!

    VIOLA!!....You are CORRECT!

    Avanti PCV!

    Sorry....10/60 is not correct!
  6. It's a good idea to go with a 'mini' spare....Not only is there plenty of room for it in the well, the 'mini' allows storage of several other items 'down below', out of sight!
  7. Sherwood Egbert took a leave of absence from Studebaker in ......?..... of 1963. 1) September......2) October......3) November ....or....4) December

    Avanti Flares!

    While building up the full size clay mockup of the Studebaker Avanti, fender flares, a design detail still being considered, were axed by.......?.......

    Avanti Woman!

    'Wives or girlfriends' were supposedly not allowed in the Palm Springs house while the Studebaker Avanti design team was 'brainstorming', except for......?......

    R3's/R4's

    Avanti PCV!

    All Avanti R1 and R2 engines were equipped with a positive crankcase ventilation system...Studebaker began identifying vehicles which were equipped with PCV systems with stickers in .....?.... /....?..... 1) 10/60.......2) 2/61.......3) 6/61.....or.....4) 3/62
  12. Nope, you're wrong about that Gary!............Try to understand, Mr. Loewy acquired a Cadillac trim piece, available to anyone at the time, and cleverly adapted it to the front nose panel of his Studebaker Avanti............This gave the front of R3422 a distinctive, 'very different' look. If Mr. Loewy desired to COPY what Cadillac did, he would have installed the 'V' on his Avanti's deck lid.......and That's That!
  13. If I'm not mistaken, those power window motors are interchangeable right to left.
  14. Got it!.....I did take your first sentence the wrong way. Thank you for the explanation. By the way, I noticed that your '63 Avanti (63R2809) took first place at the AOAI National Meet back in '72....That's great, and it's also great that you still have the car!
  15. You are implying Mr. Lowey imitated Studebaker stylists when he had the interior 'Pirates Buckles' installed on his Avanti.......Highly unlikely!! Frankly, I believe he'd be the last person to copy ANYBODY! (and I think that most fans of Raymond Loewy would agree with me) So, unless you can document Studebaker's coming up with this idea first, R3422 will stand as the correct answer to this trivia question......Also, I politely suggest you re-read the sixth paragraph of Dennis Adler's article...............Be well!........Ed
