    Don - Does this mean that 3776 would have Avanti II and 3801 would have Avanti?

    To: Avantidon,----Yes, I guess Blake didn't like the II designation at all! (I remember back in the late sixties-seventies when a few Studebaker Avanti owners would replace the 'Studebaker' nameplate
    on the decklid with the 'Avanti' script........then more recently some of these cars, while undergoing restoration, having the Studebaker nameplate re-installed on them (Amen!)

    I believe at least one of the production records stood 29 years, although I don't recall which one.

    1963-1964 were Studebaker Avanti. 1965-1982 were Avanti II. 1983-2007 were Avanti.
