View Full Version : Picture of a '55 Avanti on eBay

"Featured is a neat old 35 mm KODACHROME red bordered ("Kodachrome Transparency/Processed by Kodak") slide from approximately 1955. The image was taken at the family farm in North Dakota. The image shows a young boy posing. In the background is a cool old green Studebaker Avanti ."

Who knew? I would have guessed a 53 or 54 coupe.

Those '55 Avantis definitely were ahead of their time by about 8 years.

Ridiculous! Another clueless ebay seller, knows less about Studebakers than a jackass knows about tap dancing.

Wait!! he updated his e-bay site with a correction, it's now a 1955 Studebaker Hawk.

In response to me informing seller that the car could not be an Avanti, but a 1953 or 1954 coupe, seller said he received a message (from another clueless person) that its a 1955 Hawk. Uh huh...

"You rang?"

When kids discovered that Lurch (Ted Cassidy) lived in their neighborhood, they went over to his home in the middle of the night and rang his doorbell.

It was wasn't too long afterward that Cassidy disconnected his door bell as this was occurring many times during the night.

Cassidy lived on Brooktree Road where it intersects with Sunset Blvd in the Pacific Palisades section of West LA.

Trifle and sad that commentary as such gets posted on this board. We can do better. A dumb question to some is more qualifying. I aint LION. cheers jimmijim
