The color was not available on any of the trucks, of course, knowing Studebaker, anything was possible......Keep on Studebakering

It was only used on Hawk and Lark Types, not Avanti.

Champs used a red called Apache Red. Truck below is a friends "three trucks into one" restoration that was completed by he and his dad back in the late 1990s. Color is spot on - although photos have a way of making things look a little different...

'Avanti Red' and 'Avanti Maroon'. All Avanti colors were preceded with 'Avanti'.

The "Avanti Red" Metallic is the Honduras Maroon GM Color and clearly Maroon.

The "Avanti Maroon" Metallic used on '64's is Burgundy, much Darker.

The "Super Red" Metallic for Super Lark/Hawk is somewhere between those 2.

The '64 Lark Hawk "Bordeaux Red" is a Dark Red, (darker than this) that has less Blue and it is not Irridescent/Metallic like the rest, a major difference.
