    Interesting that the GT Hawk has whitewalls on it.

    It looks like they are laying out the salt flats tires to replace the street tires with...what is apparently already in progress on the Avanti.

      Sure that makes sense, they most likely just drove that Hawk and the others off of the Auto Transport Trailer pulled by Paxton's Stude. Transtar E40 Tractor, and just arrived from Sunny Santa Monica, CA with the correct factory whitewalls on. [^]

      That rig: Tractor/Trailer was once owned by Lionel Stone!

        Geez, Tex - haven't you learned anything from these forums?

        It's obviously one of those Ramblers they put Mustang motors in, back in sixty-sumpin'. Friend of my step-uncle's sister's second husband had one of those.

              I wonder what Country code 2207 is? Or is it a typo close to a New Hampshire or Maine area code?

                Actually...... '64 was the year that AMC debuted their new 232 - an aging Studebaker engine they license-built specifically for the New Rambler Typhoon!
                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                  'Can't help but wonder how many of us know what a 1964 Rambler Typhoon is, Bob...or the significance of it as a stand-alone model for the sole purpose of introducing a new engine.

                  For as long as I can remember, and we're talking decades, here, there has been one of them sitting on a gravel drive deteriorating into oblivion in a well-to-do area of north Indianapolis. My travels take me by there about twice a month, and it is still there. It's sharing driveway anchor duties with a red 1968 Dodge Charger / black vinyl top in like condition... which is to say, poor.

                  They look totally out of place in such an affluent neighborhood as where they sit. BP

                    Indeed, Bob, the color they came in predates your '75 Pacer by 11 years!! http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...hlight=typhoon

                      Going back to post #22, Roscomacaw, do you mean to say that the AMC car that Bobby Allison drove in NASCAR was actually Studebaker powered?

                        Maine AC is 207. New Hampshire AC is 603

                          Sam, I'm sure Bob is just funnin' us because the new, 7-main-bearing 232 Rambler Six had the same cubic inch displacement as the original Studebaker V8. BP
