AutoHunter Spotlight: 1963 Studebaker Avanti

Second year model repainted in factory gold shade


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a preserved 1963 Studebaker Avanti that’s finished in Gold over a reupholstered red and ivory vinyl interior.

“The Avanti model launched into production in 1962 in Studebaker’s South Bend, Indiana assembly plant as a personal luxury car,” the auction house notes on the car’s listing. “A total production run of fewer than 6,000 units rolled off the assembly line over the subsequent years.”

This second-year example is reported to have a straight body with good gloss throughout with chrome front and rear bumpers, bright window molding and door handles and a large greenhouse.

The interior houses bucket seats with Avanti embroidery split by a center console, an ivory dash and wrapped steering wheel and air conditioning.

Under the forward-hinged hood sits a 289cid Jet-Thrust V8 topped with a chrome-finished air cleaner and mated to a rebuilt Borg Warner Power-Shift 3-speed automatic transmission.

The odometer shows 6,000 miles but the seller believes the true mileage to be around 106,000 miles.

This Avanti’s auction ends September 18 at 1:27 p.m. PDT.
