Hello Avanti Enthusiasts!

My name is Eric Peltier, and, my Grandfather, Dr. Leonard F. Peltier, owned a Studebaker Avanti.  Bought it new, I am told.  I was also told he was then in all sorts of trouble with my Grandmother.  But he loved it.

Anyhows, I thought the power of the internet might make for a fun exercise:  Does anyone have his old car?  I don't have a SN or VIN.  It was White with Maroon interior, R2 engine, Auto, and he was living in Tucson AZ when he sold it in 1971 or 1972.

Have a look on the Bob Johnstone Studebaker site.

There is a link to surviving Avanti's cars on that. It doesn't have all of them but you can scroll around maybe you will recognize it.

It would be  easier with the vin number if you could locate one on an old photo or something.
