1963 Studebaker AvantiCheck out this nice 1963 Studebaker Avanti that has been partially restored.
It was bought about 1975 from a wrecking yard without an engine, transmission and many other parts. There is a folder available with resources and receipts for the work that has been done over the decades since the acquisition.
- Mileage: 85358 miles. Most of the miles occurred prior to the consignment to the wrecking yard. Maybe 200 miles since in all.
- Engine: Chevy 4-bolt 350. Casting number 6268751 on the intake indicates a 350 engine that came out of a 1972 Camaro or 1972 Corvette. The engine was installed with new pistons and new rings.
- Transmission: GM Turbo 375
- Licensing: It has been registered as non-operative in California at least since 2007.
- Storage: It has been in the driveway with a car cover that has been replaced every few years.
- There is an electrical short to right rear tail light so the battery has been disconnected.
- Needs power steering, power brakes and windshield wiper blades and heads.
- Needs air conditioning (we know of a place that will do this)
- Tires were once new, but need inflation and/or replacement.
- Wheels don't match, but wheels and hubcaps are a personal preference. There are a set of Avanti wheel caps in excellent condition, stored separately from the car.
- Rear positraction-limited slip differential ratio = 3.08. Has new factory parts.
- Front suspension was completely changed to Chevy Camaro
- Valve covers should be replaced as current ones are rusted
- Uses premium fuel
- Dash has aftermarket cassette/radio player installed
- Has new leather seats, bucket in front.
- New carpet (gray)
- New black headliner
- Some assorted trim and replacement parts available.
- Entire car body was block sanded and the silver paint color used was originally formulated for Mercedes-McLaren.
Some of the photos were taken in the last month. Other photos were taken years ago.
