John Ebstein, one of 4 members as well as the nominal project manager of the team who finalized the design for the Avanti in 1961, was invaluable to Raymond Loewy on the Avanti Design project, as well as other Loewy projects, and was hired by Raymond Loewy because of his:   1)  "creative sensibility"   2)  ability to beat a deadline  3)  unique skill on collaborating with a product's engineers  4)  airbrushing skills

It does sound like something Loewy could have especially valued Ebstein for,but that’s not the correct answer.

Something about airbrushing springs to mind.

 

That is correct.
