Which supplier to Studebaker had an ad which stated that a complete line of its products helps keep the new Studebaker dazzler (Avanti) living up to its name?

1) Rinshed-Mason.....2) Carter......3) Valvoline....or....4) Prestolite

I’d say Prestolite…ignition points, condenser, cap and distributor…starter…alternator.  The only big thing they didn’t provide was the spark plugs…Champions were used…kinda surprising as the rest was Prestolite…or Prest-O-Lite as it was then known.

The phrase "living" would eliminate #1.  I will guess Valvoline.
