West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this mostly all original and stock 1963 Studebaker Avanti R2 Supercharged 289/289HP 4BBL V8 2 door Coupe with 9:1 compression ratio in its original ’Avanti Gold’ factory color paint and boasting it’s extraordinarily rare and desirable factory 4 speed manual transmission and original matching #’s engine and factory options including power steering, power front disc brakes, AM Pushbutton radio, electric clock, heater and defroster and original 289 V8 Supercharged R2 Super Jet Thrust engine! Reportedly one of less than 500 in total factory 4 spd Supercharged R2’s ever built between the 1963-64 production years! The R2 would set several land speed records for factory stock vehicles, eventually breaking 29 speed records between 1963-64, to become the 'World’s fastest production car.' These records remained on the books for many years. Top speed was almost 169 miles per hour.

This particular example was purchased from only it’s second owner, a retired airline pilot who lived in Newport Beach, California in 2005 (who had previously purchased the car from it’s original owner in 2001), in all original condition including the paint and interior and with 82,951 original miles on it’s original matching #’s engine and with no history of any accidents or damage, by only its third owner who also lived in southern California and who since has restored the car mechanically as required over the years with no expense spared and only using original restored or NOS parts and including an engine rebuild and one professional repaint in it’s original ’Avanti Gold’ color.

The most often overlooked true performance car of the 1960s is the original 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti. This is an odd phenomenon, seeing as the Avanti was more expensive than a Corvette when new, built in limited numbers and was one of the fastest and most innovative cars of the time. Andy Granatelli helped break 29 speed records at Bonneville with factory Paxton-supercharged Avantis, which he proved could run 170 MPH in 'stock' form, and 200 MPH when more heavily modified.

Rodger Ward, winner of the 1962 Indianapolis 500, received a Studebaker Avanti as part of his prize package 'thus becoming the first private owner of an Avanti.' A Studebaker Lark convertible was the Indianapolis pace car that year and the Avanti was named the honorary pace car.

This particular example came factory equipped and remains to this day as follows:

Original matching $’s 289/289HP R2 engine rebored to 302 c.i.
Original Paxton centrifugal supercharger
Original Borg Warner T10 4-speed manual transmission
Original 3.73:1 Twin-Traction rear end
Power steering
Power disc brakes
AM radio
Excellent original body with perfect ’hog troughs’
One repaint in its correct Avanti Gold color
Fawn interior
Fitted with four custom made replica Bonneville Salt Flat High Speed spinner wheels with ’Firestone Firehawk Indy 500’ tires as were on the original Indy 500 Avanti R2 Pace car for the 1962 race. The Gold color and wheels are correct for this period when the Avanti R2 broke and held the speed record for stock cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1962-63 and also for the 1962 Indy Honorary Pace Car.
The original steel wheels and hubcaps are included

1 of 1,883 total supercharged R2 models produced in 1963 and 1964
1 of fewer than 500 total factory 4-Speed R2 Avantis
The 1963 Avanti was the first American production car to have factory disc brakes
The Avanti was promoted as America’s Most Advanced Car and was more expensive than a Corvette when new
Supercharged Avantis set 29 speed records at Bonneville when new

This R2 is all that was promised from South Bend in 1963 and more, beyond it having all of the right bits, its life in bone-dry climates proved very forgiving so those famous 'hog troughs' which today look as good as the day they were installed in South Bend. The car has been completely gone through from end to end over the years to make it mechanically sound, rebuilding the original matching #’s engine and reboring it to 302 c.i. as a result of an .060 overbore (13 c.i.) @ 83,012 miles (mileage currently reads 83,349), replaced exhaust manifolds with NOS, install new stainless steel exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers, installed new fuel and water pumps, oil pressure hoses with fittings, clean & overhaul carb, R&R supercharger & install new pulley belts & new bearings, idler arm adjustor, steering box & system replaced, bell housing stripped & cleaned, braking and fuel systems, service rear differential, new clutch coupler, pivot arm & linkage, rod out & repair radiator, new vibrations dampers, new valve cover gaskets, all new window, door & trunk seals, new battery and more to make it perform to this level of perfection.

As a result, this R2s matching-numbers supercharged 289/290 HP R2 engine runs like a bear, and that rare T-10 4-speed competently sends all that boosted power to its Twin-Traction rear end with 3.73:1 gears. Combined with power steering and the aforementioned power disc brakes, it is really a fantastic car to enjoy with the added bonus of that Paxton blower soundtrack.

The 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti was amongst the most daring of 1960’s American cars, a modern masterpiece which still seems contemporary today! Built with modern safety features such as a built in roll bar, padded interior and door latches that became structural body members when closed! A supercharged 289 V8 made the car the fastest cars built in its day with a top speed of over 168mph - a staggeringly fast speed for a production street car! Some 29 Bonneville speed records were set by a supercharged Avanti. This was also the first major fiberglass body four passenger car and also the first such car to use caliper style disc brakes and anti-sway bars front and rear. With only 3,834 Avanti models built in 1963 and even less, 809 in 1964, of which only 1,883 in total were the Supercharged R2 models, most of which were ordered with the automatic transmission with reportedly less than 500 of which were R2 Supercharged models factory ordered with the 4 speed manual transmission!

This car was to prove an instant collectible and has since reached certified ’Milestone Status’. Distinctive features abound such as a grille-less front end, asymmetrically placed hood bulge, shaped windows with large glass areas, a short rounded tail end, aircraft-like cockpit instrumentation and controls, slim sectio

Any and all differences must be addressed prior to time of sale. No expressed or implied warranties, including the availability or condition of the equipment listed is made. EPA mileage estimates for comparison purposes only. Actual mileage may vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, and vehicle maintenance.

The seller makes every effort to describe in detail any known flaws in the vehicle and includes many detailed and recent photos of the vehicle. The mileage on the vehicle is correct at the time of listing but obviously subject to minor changes necessary to complete delivery of the vehicle to the buyer and test drives etc. Please note that all used vehicles, especially classic and older vehicles, are by definition unique and complex and their condition, for better or worse, must always be considered a subjective opinion to each individual. Therefore the seller shall not be responsible for the absolute correct description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein, and makes no guaranties or warranty in connection therewith. Vehicles are sold with one master key unless otherwise stated. Vehicles are sold with handbooks and manuals only if stated in the advertisement. Buyer hereby acknowledges that any definition or terms relating to a "matching numbers" description of any car has been met and the buyer has inspected the car and is satisfied with the description prior to bidding or purchase. No allowance will be made on account of any incorrectness, imperfection, defect or damage. Any descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have thoroughly inspected the vehicle, and to have satisfied himself or herself as to the condition and value of the vehicle before bidding and to bid based upon that judgment solely. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs whatsoever regardless of any oral or written statements about the vehicle.

Mechanical inspections welcomed; if you wish to inspect the vehicle you must do so before bidding; upon request seller will be happy to deliver the vehicle to a local Torrance or Santa Monica mechanic of your choice for your prepaid inspection before the reserve price is met. Once the reserve price is met this vehicle is to be considered sold in ‘as is, where is’ condition to the highest bidder with no guaranties or warranties implied or given. Once again, please note that there are no inspections to be made after the auction ends - please be sure to complete any inspection before bidding.

Good luck and thanks for your interest.
