Go Ahead: Collection of 1982-89 Avanti IIs
This next advertisement came with a surprising headline “5 Avanti II hard to find chevys”…which through me for a real loop, because I thought that Studebaker built the Avanti. So these aren’t Chevys nor Studebakers, because the Avanti name was used to build cars using the fiberglass Raymond Loewy designed bodies through five different ownership arrangements from 1965 through 2006. Confused? Wait, it gets more so. Because the Avanti was build on the Studebaker chassis with a Corvette engine from the late 1960s through 1985 and then it was put on a Chevy Monte Carlo chassis and finally a Caprice chassis. There was even a Mustang V8 based version that was built in Cancun, Mexico before the then current owner Michael Kelly was arrested on fraud charges related to a Ponzi scheme. I can tell you one that that isn’t a Ponzi scheme and that is investing your retirement income in cold hard Avantis. Go ahead, make your own day.
