1963 Studebaker Avanti - $14900 (Treasure Coast)

Date: 2012-10-23, 2:30PM EDT [Errors when replying to ads?]

Here is your chance to own a classic! This 1963 Avanti was purchased new in 1963, sold to the second owner in 1967, and was purchased by us in 2012. We have had the car repainted, but all of the rest of the car in in original condition. The car is a matching numbers 289, V8, with auto trans. with 56.983 miles.The top of the line Studebaker 289 made only 225 Horsepower. It was tuned up to deliver 240 horsepower. Studebaker had just acquired Paxton, and with it came an a belt-driven centrifugal supercharger good for 300 horsepower. Paxton President was Andy Granatelli, added a few ideas of his on how to promote the Avanti's performance image. The design and technology was way ahead of its time for this car. All chrome in good shape, interior has minimal wear for being original. "The car's design theme is the result of sketches Sherwood Egbert "doodled" on a jet-plane flight west from Chicago 37 days after becoming president of Studebaker in February, 1961. the Avanti featured a radical fiberglass body design mounted on a modified Studebaker Lark Daytona 109-inch convertible chassis with a modified 289 Hawk engine. The car was fitted with front disc-brakes which were British Dunlop designed units, made under license by Bendix, "the first American production model to offer them." Fewer than 4600 were produced in 1963, as the vin number shows this car to be in the early production , with the vin number showing in the 1200 range.
