  1. I thought it was the '1964' prototype car with the thicker seats (and Claret interior?), which was painted Avanti Maroon, and eventually assigned P6436 as a production paint code. Craig
  2. I will say 30; taking into account its the only way to open the trunk without, a) taking 'emergency action' of being an acrobat and having to crawl through the back seat area to do it, and b) the event of someone forcing the trunk closed on top of luggage stacked too high with the result of undue pressure on the latch assembly.

    Avanti Window!

    All the window glass is unique to the Avanti, considering the Avanti was the first (and only) postwar Studebaker to have curved side glass. Only Chrysler and Ford had cars in production with curved side glass when the Avanti was introduced. Craig

    Avanti Window!

    The Hawk vent window has a further degree of swing room, allowing it to open further. Craig

    Avanti 63R1025

    Please keep us posted on your progress. We are hoping to have a number of 'significant' Avantis at MCACN this year, including the last (Studebaker) Avanti made. Craig

    Avanti 63R1025

    We would love to see this car at MCACN (Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals) in Chicago this November. Craig
  7. That is one reason I don't participate on that Forum as much as I used to. When someone (usually new to the Forum) made an inquiry that was addressed and answered previously, I often copied & pasted the original post that provided an answer which was maybe done years ago. It also saved me from having to repeat myself. The Nazi moderator instantly locks it, considering its a 'necropost' because of its age, which becomes no longer relevant as its totally on topic and pertinent to the new poster's inquiry. Besides making the newcomer uncomfortable, it also discourages participation by long-time posters, and defeats what a major reason a Forum is for; a resource and sharing of information related to the product it represents.

  8. Nice to see it translated into English in the latest Avanti Magazine 194! Craig
  9. It appears the French publication, Autoretro magazine will be doing an article on Studebaker Avanti in an upcoming issue. Hints of that is when they solicit reader's photos of their car in the current issue, which they will feature when the article is published. Craig "We plan to discuss the Mercedes SL / SLC and Studebaker Avanti soon. You who own (or have owned) one of these cars, your user or restaurant testimonial interests us. Tell us about your joys and sorrows behind the wheel of these cars, the maintenance budget or even the points to be inspected in priority before purchase: your experience interests our readers who would in turn like to take the plunge but are still hesitant! Each participant will collect their photos and receive a copy of Autoretro in their mailbox ... As long as you mention your postal details!"
