  • Curved side glass windows

    Was the Avanti the first? If not, who was? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Are you meaning Studebaker only? My dad had a '62 Lincoln and it had curved side windows.

      1957 Imperial is usually credited as the first with them, but a few cars dating even before the first world war had curved side glass.

        I thought it was American Motors' Rambler.

          The '63 Rambler Classic and Ambassador were the first to bring it to the "Mass Market", figuring the '57 Imperial was not "Mass Market". <G>
