Beautiful car. Very stylish. I would buy this over most other cars made in 1965 any day of the week. 

There was one at a local show a few years ago. Cant remember the int. colour but was white ext. The car I saw was also a low mile original condition. I talked to the owner for awhile, had no idea these cars existed before that. I seem to recall his may have been super charged though? Maybe not!

That would be possible (though extremely rare) on a 64. The 64 models look almost identical to this.

As I recall, the Daytona had options very similar to the Avanti

1.     V-8 

2.     V-8 with supercharger but no A/C

3.     V-8 with A/c but no supercharger

 

These options in an Avanti may have been called R-1, R-2, and R-3,

but I'm not sure which was which as far as the blower and the A/C.

My friend Stevce had a blown Avanti and it was a blast to drive !

It may have been. I recall the owner telling me that his car was indeed very rare.

The last two years 1965-66 when production was moved to the Hamilton, Ontario, Canada plant, as noted in The Standard Catalog of American Cars, 1946-1975, Edited by John Gunnell states "Twin-Traction, disk brakes and transistor ignition were standard on Daytona Sport Sedan"   Prior Daytona engine options shared with the Avanti ended with the 1964 model year when the South Bend, Indiana factory and engine production shut down.

I sold my 1966 Commander to a retired Studebaker employee who is  in his early 80's now. He specifically wanted a late production car with the GM 194 C.I. 6 cylinder "Skybolt" and asked several times if it was originally equipped with said engine. I reassured him it was and sent pic's of the VIN and engine #'s to verify.

 Turns out in 1966  he worked on the 6 cylinder line until the last day of production, so he was on the assembly line when my car was built! He had spent many years looking for one of those very cars. Sent a restoration shop guy with an enclosed trailer on a 5 hour drive to pick it up and restore it.
