I'll eventually get around to doing a more complete commentary, but for now I'd like to indulge myself. Below are scans from photographic slides I took of an Avanti in Baltimore sometime around April of 1963. The setting was North Charles Street.
The camera I was using was essentially a 35 mm. snapshot camera by Voigtländer. One fixed lens, perhaps a built-in exposure meter (I forget, but probably not). At any rate, the quality of its images was mixed. On bright, sunny days it did a pretty good job. But under marginal lighting conditions -- not so good. The Avanti photos were taken in a shady setting, so if you click for a full enlargement, the result isn't totally sharp.
Regardless, I hope you enjoy viewing an Avanti when it was new.
