Robert F. Andrews' 1971 Avanti II started for the first time in 22 years


Recommended Posts

This is a 1971 Avanti II that was owned by my father, Robert F. Andrews, who was on the Raymond Loewy design team for the Studebaker Avanti project. Dad was one of the designers. This was his personal car. This car was kept in storage since Dad's passing in 1991. It has not run since. After a off-frame restoration that began February 2012, the rebuilt engine turned over on February 16, 2013, the first time in 22 years. The last time it ran, Dad was still alive.

Thats Mike Baker of Avanti Restorations and Service in the video. He and Rick Moon performed the off- frame restoration. Great job guys!
