  • Avanti Bumper Bracket Color & Glass Source

    Hello All. I just got my 64 R1 (R5414) out of the paint shop and I'm begining the slow, patient task of re-assembly. Can someone tell me the correct color that the front and rear bumper brackets should be?
    Second question....Does anyone know of a guy in Irving, Texas that used to have a bunch of Studebaker parts for sale? I thought his name was Perry. He had the rear glass for an Avanti and I should have bought it but I thought I could buff out the scratches that mine had. No such luck. Does anyone know a source for Studebaker glass in the Dallas area?
    Thanks, Jeff

    I am far from an Avanti authenticity expert, but I believe that those bumper brackets should be semi-gloss black.
