Here's Jim Anderson's slick 63 Avanti at Ferrie and Emerald Streets, corner of the old Studebaker office wing...

Winston Grafton Had an orange one with those same style wheels.
I think they are AMC products. They do look great.

ditto on liking them. :)
wondering if they may be Mopar wheels instead of AMC, going from the design around the lug nuts...

Motor Wheel was the manufacturer of these aftermarket wheels, as noted called "Spyders" Back in 1977 I bought a '70 Avanti II (RQA 0396) that had a set of Motor Wheel Spyders on it.

I remember those wheels well. They were really different looking for the time.

Here are a couple more good shots of Jim's Avanti. Because of the wheels, the stock nose-down '63 stance, and also the orange upholstery, this is my favourite of the surprisingly substantial number of Avantis in the chapter...
