      Bob,

      Thanks for the reply. I ordered a production order
      for my '63 Avanti from the people in Michigan. I
      haven't received it yet, but she read some of the info
      to me over the phone. She said it was delivered new to
      Milton Motors in Oakland. There is a plaque on the console
      that says it was built for "The Carlile Family".
      It is a 27,000 mile car with the original engine.

        I bought parts from them in '69 or '70. By then they weren't selling cars any more, just parts. I think the only people there were Mr and Mrs Milton, both fairly elderly.

          I have found out that they were still in business
          as of 1966 and still selling Studebakers, at least
          Avanti II's.

          According to www.theavanti.com RQA0040 was purchased
          there.
