I'm normally a Buick Reatta guy, but my grandfather recently sold a building he owns, and I've been put in change of marketing a few of the cars in there.
One he needs to get rid of is a '63 R-2 Supercharged Avanti.
I'm going to try to get some pictures up tomorrow or Tuesday, but here's what I've got on the car:
R-2 supercharged 4-speed, but currently, the Paxton supercharger is not on the car (but will come with the car).
almost brand new, high quality, bight red paint put on before it was parked. Under the dust accumulated from the 6 or 7 years in storage, it shines like new.
This car come with ALL the documentation from the day the original owner wrote a letter to the Studebaker company requesting more info on Avantis. It will all come in a thick file folder with build sheets, letters, maintenance receipts, etc.
The car has been sitting for 6 or 7 years, and thus has become very dirty. A weekend of soap and water would do wonders to the car.
It was running when parked, and probably with some fresh gas, and a hot battery would start again.
We're asking $15,000
This car is ideal for full restoration, or just to fix up and use as a weekend driver. Just needs a little TLC, and a new owner!
Again, I will try to get some pictures up before mid-week, but until then, you can contact me by email (Marck@EastCoastReattaParts.com), or call me at 919.233.1973.
Or you can call my grandfather Bob at 919.614.4018.
My grandfather has been into Avantis for 40+ years, and has owned dozens upon dozens. He's down to 4 now, a '69 Chevy powered 4-speed, an '87 convertible, and then two '62 R-2s. This is one of them. He recently sold a '63 with an R-4 in it to a guy that was going to make an E-vanti (electric Avanti), so he removed the R-4, and has it sitting in his garage.
If you'd just like to talk Avantis, I'm sure he'd love to talk to you about that too.
Thanks! and if you have any questions, feel free to ask them here too. I will do my best to answer them.

P.S. for anyone who might be interested, I'm trying to sell a 1969 Samco Cord. A fiberglass reproduction of the Cords out of the 30s. This one is blue and powered by a 440 Chrysler.
