.....this one could tell quite a story!

A red '63 Avanti has just been listed for sale on e-bay that I go back a LONG way with!

Some info on this car can be found in a short story on the AOAI FORUM under....'If '63 Avantis Could Talk'

It really is a small Studebaker world!! :)

By the way, although I like the changes made to 63R-3623, (R3 parts, four speed, manual windows) ORIGINALLY from Studebaker this car was an R2 Avanti, with a Powershift trans, tinted glass all the way around, power steering, power windows, red & fawn 'regal' interior, and was painted 'Avanti White'.....just in case anyone is interested in buying her and wanted to know! :)

Most likely they would say lets live in Miami Florida where its nice-n-warm-n-toasty........as opposed to freezing and rusting away in New England:-(
