This superior die cast model of the 1963 Studebaker Avanti
was introduced on the Franklin Mint Website. The text from the page states: When Studebaker
introduced the Avanti in 1963, it was described as visionary, revolutionary, and ahead of its time. Now, you can own the legend that elevated automotive design to a fine art — in the form of this extraordinary re-creation. Open extra-wide doors and see the futuristic instrumentation mounted above the windshield. This superb die-cast model of the Avanti has been authenticated by the Studebaker National Museum
in South Bend, Indiana. The definitive, officially authorized die-cast model of the ultimate designer's car assembled by hand from more than 100 separate parts, precision-engineered in 1:24 scale, and authenticated by the Studebaker National Museum
. The Franklin Mint Photographs of the Franklin Mint 1963 Studebaker Avanti are by Joe Ledger.
