Was it the Avanti II with the supercharged small block Chevy?

Good guess!, but no that's not its claim to fame!

By the way , it should be RQA0047!:)

Anyone else have an idea?

Sorry no, it wasn't the last Avanti ll with a 'TT' rear end, nor was it the last with a Powershift, and it's not famous for having the same owner since 1973. (although that really is quite cool!!:)

Anyone else have any thoughts on this question?:huh:)

Wild guess...the last Avanti to have the chrome trim and blacked out Studebaker "S" on the hood, sail panels and inside door panels.

Has to be something that was switched during production-'47's production-scheduled body ended up on '51??-or made for same owner?

First car with DOT mandated 5 mph “cow catcher”

Almost eight years too early for that.
