1964 Studebaker Avanti
ID# 111018
The Avanti was the last push by Studebaker to make America's only 4-Passenger High-performance personal car. It was made with a 109-inch chassis which was borrowed from the Lark, with front disc brakes and ran by versions of the "Jet Thrust 289" cid overhead valve V-8 engine.

Designed by Raymond Loewy, arguably the greatest industrial designers in American history. When he wasn't designing Studebakers, he was penning the Lucky Strike box, reworking the Coca-Cola logo and designing streamlined steam locomotives.

With only 4,643 leaving the factory makes this Avanti in particular a very rare find. This Avanti has been kept in the family and has gone from Father who bought the car new to son who currently owns the vehicle.

This is a true Studebaker Avanti, it still wears its original paint, has all original parts (nothing is aftermarket that I am aware of). It does fire up after some coaxing, it has a power steering fluid leak and the drivers seat needs to be re-done. A lot of the work has been done which was done a couple of year ago. No rust creeping underneath or in the body panels. it has been garage kept for most its life.

All West Coast vehicles that do not have wood as part of their manufacture (eg pickup truck with wooden bed or old vehicle with wood interior) and qualify for our pre-cleaning certification are guaranteed to pass Australia Quarantine upon entry. If they do not pass there will be NO additional cleaning costs charged to you.

The above price includes NATA Approved Asbestos Testing on all West Coast vehicles. If they test positive for asbestos only in the brakes, there will be an A$400 fee for the removal, installation of new brake pads and reinspection. The A$400 fee does not include the cost for the new brake pads. If asbestos is found elsewhere we will consult with you what options you have to move forward.

We are working on a similar solution for the East Coast vehicles.
