  • March 2012 Turning Wheels Cover

    Very nice March Turning Wheels cover with Sherwood Egbert and Andy Granatelli standing next to a nice Red R1 Avanti and another tourquoise Avanti at the Indy Track. Does anyone have a good scan of this cover? I would like to email a copy to Sherwood Egbert, Sherwood Egbert's grandson.

    Michael: Why not mail Egbert's grandson an entire copy?

    If you have his address, I believe SDC would certainly be willing to "comp" him an issue.

    If not, I'll pay for it...but I'd need his mailing address. BP

        That's an R3 Avanti, Michael, even though it doesn't have the typical "Supercharged" emblem on the front fender. Look closely at the bottom right of the windshield in the photo.

          And let's be fair, why not send Andy a copy too??? If I had Andy's address I would send him mine ....oh, wait a minute ...he gave me his address, so whenever my March TW arrives, I'll be fordwarding it to him to enjoy too.

            OK, Michael. Just send me a PM with his mailing address and I'll see that he gets a whole copy of the March 2012 Turning Wheels. ('Haven't seen it yet myself.)

            Grandson's name is Sherwood Egbert, right; exactly the same as his grandfather? BP

              Is the grandson's middle name Harry?

                Yes, Sherwood Egbert. I don't recall if his middle name is Harry. I will ask Richard. He looks just like his grandfather.

                I bet the Turning Wheels cover car is Egbert's personal car!!! #4130 that was used to produce the 1964 prototype!! It all lines up.

                    Its a 63R3 Round Headlights. Has another color photo inside of Granatelli showing the engine. Its a good cover photo. Also has sticker on windshield that says 63R3. More color photos inside.

                      The prototype for the 1964 model started life as a round headlight car. It was a Red car with an R3 later installed by Granatelli.

                        Does it also have a 'special interior' like #4765 as mentioned in post 27 in this thread? http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ghlight=husvar
                        It appears J. Husvar was the Trim Engineer on a lot of Studebakers.

                          I'd like the grandsons of Egbert and Loewy to sign my Avanti sometime.
