I will say 3) Jensen Interceptor because I always felt that they looked similar in style and size.  I almost bought one several times mostly because of this.

I had a discussion at a small show and shine with a couple of fellows who said the Avanti looked like the Jensen. They were sure Studebaker did the copying, not the other way around. Even after they were told my car was a '63 and the Interceptor didn't come out until '67. Some folks just make me shake my head...

Many fans of 'Brand X' cars have forever been unfair when we talk Studebakers.....mainly because they simply don't know anything about them.:(

The best we can do is try to enlighten those folks, and then let our Avantis speak for themselves!;)
