Studebaker had been nurturing a sporting image for a few years when the Avanti sport coupe burst upon the scene in 1963. Its radical design by a team led by Raymond Loewy featured a wedge-shaped profile and a grille-less nose that drew radiator cooling air from under the bumper. Studebaker successfully applied its experience with centrifugal superchargers to boost the power of its 289 cubic inch V-8 and these few, unusual cars have become highly prized by collectors. This 1963 Studebaker Avanti is finished in Riviera Blue with matching blue vinyl upholstery. The R2 289hp supercharger package has been added and it has an automatic transmission, radio, power steering, power brakes, tissue dispenser, power windows, engine compartment dress-up, factory wheel covers, and whitewall bias ply tires. It is a largely original car with a repaint, good chrome and interior. It has been painted and detailed to showroom condition under the hood. The odometer shows 55,000 miles which may well be all it has covered from new, a very good Avanti that has been lightly touched to keep it in good cosmetic condition and functioning well, an Avanti that discerning collectors will be proud to own and drive.
