This 1963 Studebaker Avanti is an incredibly rare example of Studebaker's first entry into the luxury sports car market. What makes this Avanti, which is 1 of 91 produced, so rare is that it was equipped with a sporty 4 Speed Manual Transmission along with Factory Air Conditioning. The Avanti is known to be a Raymond Loewy masterpiece, with its uniquely styled fiberglass body. There is no mistaking an Avanti! This particular Studebaker Avanti is well-documented, coming with an original owners manual and a copy of the original build sheet. According to the build sheet, this Avanti was ordered on July 11, 1962 and the final assembly date was September 26, 1962. The build sheet also reveals that a very lucky buyer in Amarillo, Texas purchased this car new. A Studebaker Avanti R1 289 Cubic Inch V8 motor with a Single 4 Barrel carburetor powers this luxury automobile. With the R1 powerplant and a 4 Speed Manual transmission, this Avanti is a really sporty car to drive. Dual exhaust gives this Studebaker a nice throaty sound. This Avanti is also well-optioned with Factory Front Disc Power Brakes and Factory Power Steering, which make for a much more enjoyable car to drive. Both the brakes and power steering were rebuilt a few years back, along with the carburetor and a number of other elements of this car. This classic Studebaker was also ordered with a Twin Traction Rear Differential. The fiberglass body was freshly repainted in its original color, Avanti White, and looks outstanding, just as it did when it rolled off the factory floor back in 1962. The interior on this beautiful Avanti has also been freshened up over the past few years. The Red Vinyl Front Bucket Seats and the Red Vinyl Rear Bench give this early sports car a very elevated, almost European, look. The center console looks great as well and is equipped with the shifter and a number of the controls for the car. The fawn colored dash and steering wheel are in excellent shape and appear to have been recently restored as well. Factory Air Conditioning is perhaps the most significant option that this Avanti is equipped with and provides for more enjoyable cruising on hot summer days. Even the radio is the higher-end All Transistor Manual Tuning Radio. The factory dash is equipped with 8 different gauges, which give this Avanti the futuristic look of a cockpit. If you're looking for an ultra-rare, fun-to-drive, classic luxury sports car, this 1963 Studebaker Avanti is the car for you! Give us a call today!
