    Beautiful work as always Brad. Did you have to do any vinyl repair or is that a repro cover? Bill

        I repaired the vinyl, and redyed it.

              Beautiful job Brad!

              I don't think that Avanti is going to be very much "Turn Key" though!

                Not yet. (until I get the "key" switch in it.)

                  Wow. It looks great even as a display out of the car.

                    I know the Avanti came together by the Lowey team in 40 days, but do we know if the interior design was finished during that same time?

                    I have always thought the dash/console was a perfect match to the exterior...

                      Reminds me of a related question (are we getting off track?). Did the original Lowey team design the dash or did Studebaker have in house designer/engineers who were responsible?

                            It had a "dent" and a little heat to soften the vinyl, and it came right out. Must have had an impact, or something leaning against it.
