      Nice picture! [] It looks like they got a little CRAZY with that GT Hawk, putting on "show only" wheels and painted-on two-tone sport roof! [:0]

        It's interesting how their banner pushes performance.

          Those wire wheels look really great. The black paint treatment on the roof is really different as well. Cool, thanks Richard!

            Once the public were allowed in I bet that rail around the elevated Avanti had a decent crowd of admirers.

              I wonder what ever happened to that huge Studebaker sign. But i'd like to have the high performance sign.

                There has been some discussion whether the right side GT door chevron is correctly attached red/white/blue or blue/white red. On this factory show car they are clearly red/white/blue.

                  Does anyone have a picture of that high performance sign that is more readable? Just curious.

                    Interesting in that Studebaker was actually pushing the Broadcloth seating option in the Cruiser in that display. One can see a blue bench seat upholstered in Broadcloth behind the Rose Mist Lark.

                            I wonder what wheel covers are on that blue Studebaker behind the sign. They look different that the stand issue wheel covers.

                              I believe those are the 'Aero-Strut' wheel covers, which were on the option list.
