  • Two interesting Avantis at RM's Auburn Fall Sale

    Two Avanties are going to sold at RM's fall Auburn event. One is the Roger Ward prize car from the 62 Indianapolis 500 and the other is an real R3 it is the next to last Avanti built and I think the last one sold to the public. I know both cars and would say they are 2+ or better. I hope they do well.

      Some cars are reserve, Nels; others are not. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        The last Studebaker Avanti, R-5643 and currently in the Crawford Museum in Cleveland, was also sold to the public.

        Ironically, R-5643 was really the last Studebaker automobile completed in South Bend, as the production order shows the build date as 12/26/63 and the car was still in the plant on 12/31/63, as evidenced by the note by a worker found in the trunk of the car a year or two later by the owner. Of course, Avantis were not assembled on the regular line nor in that building.

          Cars are often not sold in the order that they are built. The next to last one built could have been the last one sold. Too bad about the "worker found in the trunk" .

                      Hmmm. the '64 Avanti R3 Powershift R5642, is "from the John O'Quinn in Moline, IL Collection"!

                      Is Richard secretly Irish, and using his middle name!
