  • Description
The Avanti, introduced in 1962, was far ahead of its time in terms of its design. Penned by famed designer Raymond Lowey, it managed to retain all of the design features of the initial concept of the car. A very moden, sporty car that truly encapsulates the meaning of "Mid Century" design. 
 
 Its most immediately apparent feature is the unique nose, created completely without a conventional grille and taking its cooling air in through a wide, almost hidden, gap under the bumper. The front fenders, too, are sharp blades extending well forward of the nose. The fenders have a pronounced Coke bottle sweep and the wheel wells are shaped with unique curves.
 

Under the hood Studebaker put its powerful and well-proven 289 cubic inch V-8 engine in its R1 cars; with a 4-barrel carburetor, high lift cam, dual point distributor, clutched cooling fan, high compression heads and revised intake and exhaust system including dual exhausts with low restriction mufflers making about 240 horsepower! 

This car, a 1964 Studebaker R1 Avanti is in wonderful condition and just out of a very long time ownership. A very late production Avanti with the distinctive square shaped headlights making this particular car that much more desirable. Retaining its original interior which is in immaculate condition, the exterior is just as nice with paint and brightwork very well executed to just like new or even better condition. The high performance R1 289 V-8 engine runs very well and the automatic transmission shifts as it should. Overall this is an exceptional late production R1 Avanti that is ready for show or for driving!
