  • Avanti door sills

    Who sells reproduction door sills for a 63 Avanti? I have an NOS left, but it has the little rubber snout broke off and missing. Can I buy the right side separately? Someone posted about a simple way to fabricate a different type.

    Studebaker International sells both sides separately. About $200 each side.
    Your left will still work if the "snout" is at the front tip, I think it's there to provide a slightly better fit, but you won't notice if it's not there. To save $200, I'd learn to live with it.

    I believe "gunslinger" here had a way to make your own out of metal. Also Avanti II and later ones would work, they might be cheaper and are probably available from Nostalgic and perhaps other vendors.
