Vehicle Description

1970 Avanti II

Car History

The original Avanti was the first for Studebaker in size and concept with a distinctive hand-built car that came with routine add-ons like automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, air-conditioning, plus a few items that aren't listed for mass-production cars, such as genuine leather seats and shag carpets. This was a true competitor to the GM Corvette in that era.

This 1970 Avanti II we have here at Adventure Classics is based on the Studebaker Avanti chassis and is powered by a Chevy 350 cubic inch V8 paired to an automatic transmission.

Engine & Drivetrain

Our Avanti is powered by a 350 cubic inch small block Chevrolet Corvette engine and a 3-speed automatic transmission with power steering and brakes, aluminum intake, 4-barrel carb, performance spark plug wires, chrome valve covers and an open element air cleaner, performance hoses, and sits in a factory correct engine compartment. The R1 Studebaker set the speed record in 1963 with the Avanti achieving 160mph!


The second generation Avanti II has the original body design as the Studebaker Avanti. The interior design is original with the factory roll bar, tilt steering wheel, power window, with its caramel twin front leather bucket seats and matching rear seat. There are caramel premium carpets and door panels. The factory instrument panel has a tachometer, speedometer, oil pressure, water temperature, vacuum/pressure gauge, clock, switches, factory push-button radio, tilt factory brown steering wheel, and the headliner is upholstered in the same material as the seats and door panels.


This Avanti II will need a fresh paint over its body and the hood bulge. The glass is in wonderful shape with clear and no fogging. The frame is solid with no rust and will prove to be a superior build when completed. The factory craftsmanship on those cars were superb.


This driver quality 1970 Avanti II we have here at Adventure Classics is a rare American made performance car made by Studebaker with the Chevy 350 cubic inch V8 paired and an automatic transmission that will attract a lot of attention!
