      I thought 64 used more of a refrigerator white. 62-63 is Wimbledon white for sure.

        I wonder if tennis players are required to wear "Wimbledon White" at Wimbledon, or perhaps just any shade of white?

        Oh, am I getting off-topic?

        Anyway, yes, I had some Wimbledon White mixed up for me that I'll be using on my truck's wheels and grille (going for the look that was used on some of the European export truck grilles in '55).

          Bob,
          I was going to tell you yesterday that I did see a '63 Avanti that came from the factory with flat black rims. It was ordered with the optional Dunlops and apparently the factory pulled unpainted rims and put the Dunlops on them. The car had 11,000 miles when I saw it and the Studebaker part nnumbers were on the inside of the rims.
