The report was quite comprehensive and included data on numerous complete bodies with the body numbers and further notes on the condition of these bodies with minutiae on any irregularities or imperfections. It is my recollection that the report was dated in late 1964 (maybe Dec). While I had hoped to purchase this from Dennis it got away from me when I was distracted.

      Did it have Vehicle Inspection Reports in it that looked like these ones? http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ighlight=resin (Posts 17 & 27)

      And who is Dan Booth? Does he have these available for sale? http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ighlight=apple

        Dick it was me. I have the MFG file and the Raymond Loewy files from Avanti Motors here in my collection. The MFG file was very helpful in filling in the Avanti Motor Corporation portion of the MFG body story.

              The article in Turning Wheels was the 2nd of three body articles . i can send the PDF file of #3 the detailed listing of the first 80 Avanti II builds by body number and AMC serial number to anyone who is interested.

              Send email titled AMC Bodies to avantifromct@aol.com
