I looked at the Barbara Walters Avanti when it was for sale many years ago. I believe that it was a 1973-1976 (leaning more toward 1976). The only things that I remember is that it was in good condition except for cracks in the front fenders from oversize tires and not a very appealing interior (like most '70s Avantis) and that the price was too high.

I never new that Sandy Koufax had an Avanti. He lives here in Vero Beach FL. I met him one time when he was considering the purchase of a car my father had for sale. I rode around with him driving. He decided a Mercedes C220 was not big enough for him as he is pretty tall. He is a to himself kind of guy and does not like to sign anything.

Just recently on his evening radio show Mr. Cooper mentioned that he loved driving his 1963 Studebaker Avanti, and that he had owned several at one time.

I'll get excited when there is a website for Celebrity [u]TRANSTAR</u> owners (which I am sure will also include '59 Deluxe and '62 to '64 Diesel models).[}:)]:D;)

For you non-Avanti owners...here's what I've picked up over the years in the Avanti magazine...

The Dick Van Dyke Avanti (he was/is quite a car guy) is now in storage at the Peterson museum in LA...(I've heard it described as "just another white Avanti").

The Johnny Carson car still exists...but only half...it is said to have burned.

The Ian Flemming Avanti is missing in England. Maybe our UK friends could tell us if they know what happened to it and Shirley Bassey's "car. I'd be interested in knowing if it is still out there.

Anyone with any details of the Sinatra car? The cited website is the only place I've seen the car mentioned. Usually and FS car (aside from the 80s "FAS Edition" Imperials:D) go for a big premium.

The Deforest Kelly car has been restored by the owner/operator of the "avantisource" website. http://www.avantisource.com/new_project.htm

One of the ex-Alice Cooper cars, a late model (early 2000s pre-Mexico) convertiable is now owned by a California minister.

Any updates or corrections welcomed.
