  • A 64 convertible as a rental car???

    Here is a 64 convertible on ebay. The production order in one of the pictures mentions something about a rental car. Wonder what that note really means.

          .... yes, my car was titled as a 1963 Studebaker convertible..... that's how I bought it: sight unseen as a 63'..... what a surprise when the garage door opened up to see a 40K mile 64'...

            The 64 convertible that I once owned and Jim Turner now owns was a Hertz rental car.

              My 63 R1 Avanti started life as a rental car in Florida. I was surprised when I got the paper work from the museum.

                As Skip stated, the one I have now was a rental, along with another one that is also here in Noblesville Indiana, was also a rental. What are the chances of 2 out of 3 rental cars from the same place ending up here in Noblesville 50 + years later???
                Maybe I need to pick up the 3rd one??? <G>

                  Hertz or Olin Rent-a-Car, Skip? I've seen several tagged for Olin, but not any tagged for Hertz. "Never say never," of course.

                    Bob-
                    Can no longer remember for sure, but it's my recollection that the car was owned by Hertz in Miami. It was subsequently sold to a woman in DC. I gave all the paperwork I had to Jim. Maybe he can answer.

                        My Olin was Strato Blue...... I recall them having several color combos.... all built the same way. Is it the 86' TW's for 64' ragtops ??

                          The July 1986 Turning Wheels is the issue containing all the 1964 convertible specifications by serial number, Jack. BP
