Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to offer this rarely seen 1963 Studebaker Avanti. The Avanti was a personal luxury coupe produced by The Studebaker Corporation June 1962 and December 1963. It originated as a doodle on a napkin in a jet plane west of Chicago by Sherwood Egbert just 37 days after he took over as President of Studebaker in February 1961. It was marketed as "America's only 4 passenger high-performance personal car." The Avanti broke nearly 30 records at the Booneville Salt Flats in Utah. Unfortunately the Studebaker factory in South Bend, IN shut down in December of 1963, and only 5800 Avanti's were produced during the production run. The naming rights to "Avanti" were purchased, and the Avanti II was produced from some years. This fine example appears to have been cosmetically restored and shows very well. The body is painted a beautiful shade of Gold that has a very slight metallic flake, with a cream vinyl interior. This fine example is powered by a 289 V-8 mated to an automatic transmission. The engine bay is very well detailed, with some chrome accents. The same holds true for the interior which has been very well taken care of, and the console floor shift gives that sporty feel. Recent repairs include a full rebuild of the transmission, carb rebuild, air conditioning rebuild, new battery, and brake booster rebuild. Options for this 1964 Studebaker Avanti include: air conditioning, vinyl interior, power steering, power brakes, am radio, hub caps, radial tires. This is a great example of a Studebaker Avanti and will have Studebaker followers at all the local show or cruises - coming to take a look!
