    John Hull's book is now posted for sale through the Avanti Owners Association International website:
    The Studebaker Avanti reception as unveiled at the Los Angeles & New York Press Receptions as well as the NY Auto Show was an unmittaged success. This new book by Avanti historian John Hull features many unique photographs and press releases explaining the path and atmosphere of the week-long introduction of the Studebaker Avanti.

        I have one of the pre production airlift Avantis awaiting restoration. Lots of neat non production differences.

          I want to thank everyone for the initial response to my contribution to Studebaker History. Keep the orders coming. Remember birthdays, holidays especially Christmas is just around the corner. You can order direct from me or use the AOAI shop link above.
          Lets all do our part to encourage this type of effort in documenting Studebaker History.

            I have very much enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone with an interest in Avanti history, or just generally an interest in Studebaker's early 1960's period.
