Where were the 2 Avanti prototypes-the Notchback and Fastback that were to be the basis for the 1964 passenger car lines-designed?...And which 2 designers did the design work at this particular location?

Just corrected the question to "designed",not "fabricated"

Gary-looking for the names of the 2 designers who did the design work for the prototypes,as well as where they designed the car  (a similar scenario to the Palm Springs "design house" ) -and you are most certainly correct about the fabrication of those prototypes being done by Pichon-Parat.

Yes-John was indeed one of the designers-he told me the story of how primitive the working conditions actually were at Pichon-Parat,where he oversaw the prototype fabrication It was actually an old barn where the prototypes were fabricated and John also relayed the story of having to put out a fire in one of the prototypes that was caused by a careless metal shaper there that almost resulted in one of the prototypes being destroyed...now-who was the second designer,and where did the actual design work  (not fabrication) take place?
