Description:

1980 Studebaker II --

Iconic styling meets reliable components – that's why you want an Avanti II. Of course when that also comes with a well-coordinated presentation, A/C interior, and a terrific price – well then, this one is absolutely irresistible. The Avanti was the boldest Studebaker to hit the streets, but it was also one of their costliest cars. But there were a select few who understood the significance of the car penned by the legendary Raymond Loewy, and they kept it going... with small batch, handcrafted examples like this 1983 Avanti II. This history gives the coupe an instant appeal, and it's also why someone has taken the time to keep this one looking so nice. A newer application of medium blue metallic paint offers a nice shine. When you get this into the sunlight, it really highlights the artistic blend of crisp lines and gentle curves on this well-preserved body. The original form-fitting bumpers follow this same design philosophy to create a look that's distinctly American and always futuristic. Inside the blue and gray bucket seat interior continues this stylish American-style appearance. Everywhere you look, there's the look of originality. The tuck and roll appearance of the dash, aircraft-inspired toggle switches, wraparound gauge panel with full Stewart Warner readouts, and the three-spoke steering wheel with Avanti center cap – it's all part of a very classic and cool presentation. And speaking of cool, one upgrade you'll absolutely appreciate is the modern R134a air conditioning. While this car was built in South Bend – just like the best Studebakers – the Avinti II motor is a Chevy 350 cubic-inch V8. So while you'll always have a connection to the iconic styling, the mechanical side of this classic is robust and easy to maintain. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it makes the kind of good power and great torque you want in a cruiser like this. In fact, with power steering, front disc brakes, a three-speed automatic transmission, sway bars front & rear, and modern Michelin tires on classic keystone wheels, this one really does have all the right ingredients to be a great anytime classic. Complete with build receipts and maintenance records, it's amazing you can get this much distinction for such an affordable price. So don't miss out, call today!
