"Talk about unloved and misunderstood.
When Raymond Loewy
and his team huddled in the designer’s Palm Springs
enclave to pencil out the Avanti, Studebaker
was already writing its final chapter and even the Jetsons’ wildest automotive dream could not save the company. But the space-age Avanti, about 4,650 of which were built from 1963 to 1964, remains the poster car for midcentury modernism. With a fiberglass body and futuristic interior, the Avanti was not all about looks; Studebaker’s 289 cu in V-8 engine made 240 hp and, with optional supercharger, delivered serious performance. The Avanti II, a near-identical successor built by Nathan Altman from 1965 until 1982, kept the flame alive. If only an original will do, pay $30,000 to $60,000 for a slice of historic heaven." – The Robb Report Studebaker Avanti R2 on The Robb Report
