"Bread and Butter" Avanti

Recommended Posts

In search of a model to replace the aging line of Studebaker passenger cars (other than the Avanti) beginning in the 1964 model year, Studebaker considered several options, one option being an Avanti-influenced, Avanti-based full model lineup. The man sent to France, to oversee the construction of the fully functional metal bodied prototype for the Avanti-based lineup was:

1) Otto Klausmeyer 2) Otis Romine 3) John Ebstein 4) Brooks Stevens

I will guess John Ebstein, since he was sort of a right-hand-man to Loewy.  

Bingo!..it was John Ebstein
