First Avanti Owner
The 1963 World Series Most Valuable Player Award went to Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher, Sandy Koufax, who drove an Avanti. After Koufax tamed his blazing fastball, he enjoyed a five-year stretch as perhaps the most dominating pitcher in the game's history. He won 25 games three times, captured five straight ERA titles, and set a new standard with 382 strikeouts in 1965. His fastball and devastating curve enabled him to pitch no-hitters in four consecutive seasons, culminating with a perfect game in 1965. Primary Position: Pitcher Bats: R Throws: L Primary Uniform #: 32. Played For: Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers (1955-1966).
