Heard through the grapevine that Studebaker Avanti 63R1025, the HOT ROD MAGAZINE R3 road test car has been sold.....Anyone out there happen to know who purchased that rare Avanti?:huh:

Maybe!🤣

Hey that's GREAT!!...you now own one of the "rare ones", right up there with #8 & #9!....I was thinking that Nels Bove might have ended up with it, as he has a taste for the rarest and the most desirable postwar Studes.

Hopefully you'll return its original 'Avanti Turquoise" exterior paint......and bring it back to HOT ROD MAGAZINE condition.......Best of luck, and KEEP US INFORMED!!....Ed:)

We would love to see this car at MCACN (Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals) in Chicago this November.

I doubt it will be ready by then.

Yes, there's a bit of work to be done there...but at least the interior (as I remember) is in decent shape, and all the rare Granatelli goodies were present and accounted for!:)

That sounds good!...and perhaps some Studebaker Avanti owner out there who can't afford new seat covers may be interested in those black ones!:)

Please keep us posted on your progress.

We are hoping to have a number of 'significant' Avantis at MCACN this year, including the last (Studebaker) Avanti made.

What are the two gauges under the dash? I don't remember seeing them before.

Prior owner said the Granatelli's installed them...One of the gauges measures fuel pressure....They were concerned that the fuel mixture may lean out under high boost conditions causing internal engine damage.:o

When the engine is opened, it sure would be nice to know (once and for all) the bore/stroke of that 'Granatelli' powerplant:o :)!
