WTB STUDEBAKER AVANTI

Recommended Posts

An R2 4 speed located in Canada would be preferable but I realize unlikely.Willing to consider anything, anywhere  but want a driver not a pristine high dollar car.

No time for a huge project but not afraid of something that needs  some work. Don't want an Avanti II ,no offense!

Thanks Mike.  First Avanti  I saw was at the Ottawa Exhibition in 1963. A gold one parked next to a black GT Hawk  , both brand new on display. That, combined with owning a few Studebaker trucks along the way and reading Andy Granatelli"s autobigraphy has made me think it's about time to own one of those amazing cars.

R-1, 4-speed, air.  Very nice car.  I’ve owned for 12 years. Time to let it go. $21,000. Car is located in northwest Louisiana. If interested, call Tom at  318-382-3337. Please be prepared to leave a message because I seldom hear the cell phone ring now that my wife has convinced me to give up the landline.

I have owned this Avanti for more than 10 years and it's time to find it a new home.  I recently consigned it with Gateway Classic Cars.  It's in Atlanta but can be shipped anywhere.

Barry. The one in Louisiana has three pedals. I’d think about that because they don’t come up often. Automatics are the norm.
