Cool Wheels Dude: 1963 Studebaker Avanti

What is an Avanti? It’s complicated. The Avanti name was first used by Studebaker to build cars on the Lark platform using mostly Studebaker parts and people from 1962 through 1963. But the fiberglass Raymond Loewy designed bodies appeared again in 1965 and the Avanti 2 assembly went through five different ownership arrangements before it ended in 2006. Those later cars were built on the Studebaker chassis with a Corvette engines, but today’s Avanti is an actual Studebaker with supercharged V8. Find this 1963 Studebaker Avanti bidding for $19,600 with a few hours to go, located in Langhorne, PA via ebay.

We have a lot of documentation including Studebaker documents and invoices for the past 50 years.

Trunk latch is stuck and won’t open. This was my customer’s car and was in the garage the past 20 years and was started only a few times a year. When I got it it ran and drove but the carburetor was acting up so I had the original one rebuilt. Drives very well. Has a nice patina in some areas on the paint. It’s a good project for restoration or keeping it original if desired. Solid Driver!!!
