I was fortunate to attend a Rotary Foundation dinner which was held at the Armacost Museum in Kansas City in 2008. The entire museum contained vintage Studebakers, as well as, other classics. The Armacost family owned a Studebaker dealership and as seen by the collection which has turned into a love and appreciation for Studebakers.

For the 2015 meet in St. Louis------ This is a 4 hour trip from St. Louis and thus the following question--- If we can get the museum owners to agree, is this a tour which folks would like to see for the 2015 meet?
I have also been there and this is a very nice time. As a side note, if you go to buy aftermarket items, always select those make by Peterson Manufacturing in KC. They make good quality products and are owned by the same folks.

On the turquoise '63 Avanti.......the headrests built onto the stock '63 front seat backs look interesting.......a practical safety update!

The person who made (or still makes) the rubber door sills for Avantis works there.

Is this museum open to the public? For instance, could anyone traveling through KC stop and visit the museum? That's something I definitely want to see.

No this museum is not open to the public, it is private and can only be viewed by special arrangement. For instance he has opened it on special occasions like for clubs,etc.

Assuming you mean John, no he doesn't work there anymore. But he does still make quite a lot of reproduction parts.

That's too bad. When I saw this thread I thought that the next time I drive to Omaha (possibly this summer) I would stop by. Guess not.
