Great pics! Thanks!
I'll be a Stupid Studie Newbie and ask....
The Avantis, the newer ones. Some look to be 2000s models.
Who makes them and where? Are they still being made new?
And 4 door Avantis? Seriously???

Yes... and No. No new Avantis for several years The last were on a Mustang platform. I believe AOAI.org has a timeline.

OK I thought some of those looked like modified Mustangs.
Thanks.

Wow, definitely next best thing to being there!
I counted five 56Js: red, gray, sunglow & snowcap, doeskin & mocha, and mocha & snowcap. Wonder how many Studes there total?
Thanks Much

Thanks for the pictures. My wife and I just returned home from the meet at Dover. We had a great time being among all those terrific Studebaker people. I always enjoy the International meets.
I hope all got home in good shape.

Great shots Bob, didn't see you around when I was talking to the fellow with the red/white 1965 Daytona, (page 2 blue cap, white shirt, yellow shorts if anyone wonders about me, but cars are much better).

I think the number of Studes on the field was 255, but don't quote me.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing them! This is not a complaint but is this all the prewar cars displayed or were they staged somewhere else?

I'd have LOVED to tour the NASA shop. I'm a machinist by trade and got goosebumps looking at those pics.
I wonder what it takes to get a job there?

2001-2004 Avantis were built on Pontiac Trans Ams. 2005-2007 Avantis were built on Ford Mustang GTs.
The 2001-2007 Avantis were first made in Georgia, USA and then in Cancun, Mexico.
2007 was the last year.
All four door Avantis are 1990 models and all 1990 Avantis are four doors.

Gary (et al), When were Avantis built on the Caprice chassis? And when were the last Studebaker chassis used for Avanti production? Thanks..inquiring minds

1963-1985 on Studebaker chassis.
1987-1991 on Chevrolet chassis - first Monte Carlo and then Caprice (IIRC, the change was between 1989 and 1990).
2001-2004 on Pontiac Firebird.
2005-2007 on Ford Mustang.

GREAT PHOTOS, Bob! Pretty much caught the flavor. You got one of me with my head hanging out the roof of Rob Reese's Wagonaire as it looped the track.36218My '53 overheated as we waited to enter the "Monster" and Rob hustled me in to the back of his Wagonaire so I wouldn't miss the ride.
Here's the accompanying video I took with the wind in my face and my left hand in firm contact with his roof rack.

Thanks to Rob I probably got a more thrilling ride than if I had driven my own car! :!:

LOVE the COE Coca Cola truck! What is the story with the tricked out black '66?The '39 COE is Jerry Kurtz'. He took it home early because there was a possible hail storm predicted. As for the "tricked out" '66? I didn't ask! If it brings attention to Studebakers, can it be all bad? It's someone's labor of love and, while not my cup of tea, almost half a century and still perkin' down the road! Has to be some fun! :!!:

I agree with you. It is eye catching...enough to make me want to know about it, right?:D Sort of like a local members' '64 sedan with marker lights in the lower fenders all the way 'round. It caught my eye and looked nice and very modern. When I asked if they were some sort of option, the current owner was a little embarrassed about them but said they were installed by the po with a bit of a safety bent and obviously too much trouble to remove and restore the holes so they're there.

I heard from someone it was a local guys car , he owns a bunch of cars and he does this to some of them. It really wasn't a '66 but had some '66 stuff on it . The interior looked to be a '64 but I suppose it could of been a '65 ....not sure , but after looking at it and all its add ons I thought of Johnny Cash and his caddy :rolleyes:

I'll just say, he has a vision and he made it real. A few touches he did were attractive, I wonder how much of the stuff was Studebaker and how much other?

Gary, I do believe the Caprice Chassis started showing up on some 1988 Convertibles.

I just looked in John Hull's book to see if there was anything on this. The only thing that I noticed is; "Kelly, while still at Avanti, began planning the switch to the Chevrolet Caprice chassis for model years 1989 and beyond."
The reason that I thought that it was between 1989 and 1990 is because I thought that the track of a Caprice was wider than that of a Monte Carlo. That is the reason that 1991 convertibles are so much wider than 1987-1989 convertibles. Maybe that only applies to the newer (relatively) style Caprices.
Was the Caprice chassis modified (narrowed) for use on the 1988s and 1989s?
