  • Penned by the legendary designer Raymond Loewy and his team, the Studebaker Avanti was the first American car to feature disc brakes, adopting the 11.5 -inch Dunlop set up, from Jaguar E-type, MKII etc, which were produced under licence by Bendix . The model also had advanced safety features including a built-in roll bar and a padded interior. Just 2,418 Studebaker Avanti's were built during the1963 model year. The Loewy influences are clearly demonstrated by the aircraft style heater controls and overhead switches for lights etc (Loewy designed the interior of Air Force One for President Kennedy). The Studebaker Avanti offered here was built in January 1963 and was originally supplied to a customer in Glendale, Southern California. Where it remained until early 2023. It was was equipped with all available factory options, which included A/C, Disc brakes, Power steering, Twin Traction (LSD), Silent mufflers, Electric windows, Tinted side glass, Radio and Pop-Up vanity mirror in the glove box. Since arriving in the UK earlier this year the Avanti has benefited from upgraded electric window motors and regulators from Nu Relics, electrics overhaul, new disc pads and brake bleed. The car is also equipped with the correct Strato-Vue mirrors, remote trunk release mechanism and private AV registration number. Our Avanti drives and stops amazingly well for a 61 year-old classic. The bodywork is in superb condition with a just a few minor chips and imperfections. The interior is in incredible order, despite 60+ years of wear and remains a comfortable place to be. The underside and chassis are also in great condition, due in no small part to a life spent in Southern California. The owner has retro-fitted a modern radio in the glove box, which is equipped with telephone connectivity and aux input. Offered complete with original manuals, in original wallet, factory build card, parts manual and workshop manuals. Viewing is strictly by appointment only.
