and penned by Brook Stevens, there is a somewhat hilarious story behind it how these came to be built by the obsure little italian company.

yeah they had something like $50000 for all three cars, Studebaker was really down the drain at the time, meanwhile Egbert and Stevens also built the Excalibur, but the plug was pulled, so they turned it into a private venture. they knew by then they were pretty soon gonna be out of work anyhow.
