    Avanti Bus!

    Hood hinges at the front?
  2. The quart of Avanti Maroon paint has been sold, but the other two items are still available.
  3. Cool Studebaker Cans for sale. See two pictures below; detailed close-up pictures here on my Google Photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/1kgvPT8UoJvSKqAL7. Prices do not include shipping; usually I ship USPS. Contact me thru the Message function on this forum, or email me at: r1lark at aol dot com (letter “r”, number “one”, lark). Payment by PayPal ‘friends or family’ option, or USPS Money Order. Thanks, Paul ***SOLD*** Studebaker Avanti paint can -- Avanti Dark Maroon Metallic, nice can, has a small dent but doesn't detract from its presentation. Can is full and still liquid. $35 Studebaker Trim Kare -- full can, excellent label and plating still in very good condition. These are hard to find in this condition since the labels were quite fragile and deteriorated if not stored carefully. $65 Studebaker Tar and Road Oil Remover can -- nice graphics, slightly yellowed, can is empty. $12

    Avanti R3848!

    Isn't this the Avanti that got R3 B-92 (the R3 engine that used to be owned by Paul Johnson)?
  5. X2...........................
  6. Milt Antonick was the guest speaker at one of our NC Chapter TriState Meets (probably 20-25 years ago) and presented a very interesting and informative talk about his time at Studebaker. Milt later worked for Chrysler Corp on thier Design staff. By the way, the correct spelling is "Antonick".
  7. #2, steering wheel. If I remember correctly, it was a 'sample' wheel provided by the supplier for Studebaker to evaluate.
  8. Was it the last 1974 Avanti II?

    Bully Avanti!

    Build sheet indicated it was for Senator Vance Hartke. From Wikipedia: "Rupert Vance Hartke (May 31, 1919 – July 27, 2003) was an American politician who served as a Democratic United States Senator from Indiana from 1959 until 1977. Hartke won election to the Senate after serving as the mayor of Evansville, Indiana. In the Senate, he supported the Great Society and became a prominent opponent of the Vietnam War. Hartke ran for president in the 1972 Democratic primaries but withdrew after the first set of primaries. He left the Senate after being defeated in his 1976 re-election campaign by Richard Lugar."
