1983 Avanti for sale


Recommended Posts

"An early production-model Avanti was ready, despite a UAW strike, by April 1962, for the New York International Auto Show. It was a sensation. It was called startling, unconventional, sizzling, elegant, and a "knock-out." Avanti's looks got it noticed, but it was its early track record that set it apart from the competition. Andy Granatelli at Bonneville shattered 29 U.S. records in 12 hours. Studebakers (including Avantis) smashed 337 different USAC records in six classes. Its styling and performance were both exceptional. Canada Track & Traffic called it "A bold, fresh concept with an undeniable feeling of motion that makes Avanti's competitors seem decidedly old-fashioned." Sportscar World said "Studebaker's startling Avanti has caused raised eyebrows among diehards in the American motor industry, who have already nicknamed it America's 'Ferrari'."

The car we have for sale is a 1983 Avanti; maroon, 110k miles, sunroof, clean, beautiful collectible car! (But you guys probably know a lot more about this car that we do!)
