    I wonder if you could take a cruise ship up there, pick up the car, and put it on the cruise ship for the return to the lower 48...

      The ad shows that the Avanti has AC. Being new to Studebakers, I thought you couldn't get AC on a supercharged engine?
      Money may not buy happiness, but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

        The factory didn't offer AC on supercharged Avantis, but a number of owners have added it. With the nice small Sanden compressors it isn't too hard. Interestingly though, 1958 Golden Hawks were available with factory air. Talk about a crowded engine compartment- big compressor, supercharger, hydrovac brake booster, power steering pump/generator (the power steering and generator were one unit with the power steering pump at the rear part of the generator).

          Thanks for the info. I expanded the pictures in the ad and didn't see either a compressor or an "under dash" unit.

            The Avanti had built in vents, no under dash unit needed.
