Glad that they were...quad headlamps ruin the simplicity and elegance of the Avanti design.  

I agree with you, however, if the Studebaker Avanti had quad headlights from day one...do you think we would today consider THAT look to be normal.....and dual headlights a strange, 'odd' look ?????:huh: ;)

How could it have been "cost" when, only 5 years earlier, Studebaker spent the money to add quad headlamps to the '58 Studebaker sedans?  I say the styling department personnel all were still having nightmares about those 1958 quad headlamps.
