The Studebaker Avanti was a very special car in the 1960s. The design of the Avanti comes from none other than Raymond Loewy, the man who also designed the Coca-Cola bottle.

Designed by Raymond Loewy's team of Tom Kellogg, Bob Andrews and John Ebstein on a 40-day crash program, the Avanti featured a radical fiberglass body design mounted on a modified Studebaker Lark Daytona 109-inch convertible chassis. Only 4,643 Avanti's (not including prototypes, some of which were assigned serial numbers at the end of the run) were produced.

The Studebaker Avanti was built by the Studebaker Corporation at the direction of its president Sherwood Egbert between June 1962 and December 1963. It has been described as "one of the more significant milestones of the postwar industry", gaining iconic status with enthusiasts and collectors.

This Avanti it must be one of the finest of its kind anywhere! It is complete with a huge history and restoration file.
