Another look at 'America's Most Advanced Car'

The Studebaker Avanti, shown at the Indianapolis 500, was billed as “America’s Most Advanced Automobile.” For its 60th anniversary, the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend will explore the Avanti’s improbable origin and its place in the 1963 automotive landscape. The exhibit will look at contemporary reviews and road tests, as well as promotional materials and ads. It will also discuss the Avanti’s early production difficulties and life beyond Studebaker. The exhibition will be on display through Oct. 30. The museum is at 201 Chapin St., just west of downtown South Bend. It is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET), and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8.50 for seniors over 60, and $6 for youth 6 to 18.
