Introduced in 1962 by Studebaker, the Avanti was billed as “America's only four passenger high-performance personal car.” With a selection of GM V8 engines and a luxurious interior, the distinctive Avanti combined safety and high-speed performance. A year later, Studebaker closed the lines and the model was sold to the new Avanti Motor Company and the car was rechristened the Avanti II.

The nicest Avanti we've seen in a long time, this 1976 example has been through an exemplary restoration. With huge amounts of documents, booklets and paperwork, no bit of work has been left out with this example. The restoration was started in 1995 and finished a few years later. With receipts, photo documentation and manuscripts, the owner indicates around $19k was spent on the restoration. Originally painted Contessa Pewter Metallic, the color was changed during the restoration. It even has the original window sticker from 8/9/76. With a rebuilt engine and other fixes, the overall mechanical condition is excellent. With bright red show quality paint, excellent trim, nice black leather interior, updated weather seals and more, this car is a stunner. Everything works from the wipers, power locks and windows, climate control, interior lighting and turn signals. Also included are documents from the Avanti owners club as well as shop books, marketing literature and parts catalogues.

A rebuilt 400cid Chevy small block mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission means that parts are relatively easy to come by. A custom wood Nardi steering wheels ties the interior together nicely. Power steering, power locks, front disc brakes and climate control are all factory options. In addition to the binders of information the car also has two sets of keys. With tons of money and time poured into this car, you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer Avanti II. With extremely low production numbers estimated around 156 for 1976 and a distinct exclusive style, the Avanti II was a car that never received the distinction it deserved. Now is your chance to own a rare and eye catching piece of history.
