    I don't want this to swing off topic, but Churchill obviously was a little out of touch with reality. The REALITY was that there were orders that Studebaker lost because they took so long to fill them. I have that on the authority of a Studebaker dealer of the time. He said they were losing business because of the delivery issues - inferring it was NOT the product or the marketing solely.

      Again, for those of you not steeped in Avanti lore, a lot of orders were cancelled because of late delivery issues.
      However, some of the delays were product or engineering related (trouble with some bodies moldings, etc).

          Well, I got the details from that article. There would have been multiple reasons as the other guys said. Suffice to say we haven't been able to buy a new Studebaker since 1966, and will never again.
