Congratulations Lew! This ’63 Avanti, owned by Lew Schucart (body work and paint by Brad) won one of two highly desirable red ribbons in the Class C judging. It's a Design of Distinction award, given at the invitation only 2011 Eyes on Design show in Grosse Ponte Shores, Michigan, held at the historic Edsel and Eleanor Ford home.
The judges select two vehicles, in each class, to receive these awards, recognizing stylish appearance and uniqueness of design. Lew's hard work in bringing this car back to her 60's style appearance has definitely been noticed. The award is well deserved. It makes us proud to see an Avanti, Studebaker win this honor at such a prestigious auto show. Great job!!
