"This is such a special car for our collection. James Bell answered my call for a Studebaker expert to advise and co-project manage which was essential because of the project scope. James, who has a significant private Studebaker collection in Bellingham, Washington, volunteered to assist us. Now are ready to get the ball rolling! A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to plan for this project’s success. I cannot tell you how happy I am to see the response we have been getting in such a short time. I look foward to seeing the car back to its former beautiful glory and telling the story of Studebaker Avanti in our museum. Its significance in automotive design and American car manufacturing is a perfect match to the museum's theme America's Love Affair with the Automobile. More than that, Avantis have gone on to become loved by car collectors all over the world. Completed, the car will be one of top exhibit cars in the collection".~ Renee Crist, Collection Manager for ACM.
