1963 Studebaker Avanti R2
Engine; 289 Super Charged V-8, producing 289 Horsepower at 9:1 compression. Fueled by a 4 barrel Carter AFB carburetor, assisted by a Paxton SN-60 Supercharger. A.C. was not available with the supercharged models.
Drivetrain is by way of a Borg Warner Automatic Transmission and posi rear end, including front and rear sway bars, rear traction bar and front disc brakes.
Completed March 13, 1963, this car was a special order build and purchase was through Carmichael Cars, the local Studebaker dealership in Northern Ca. It has been in the Sacramento area ever since and was stored in a carport for twenty plus years when I found it. I am the third owner of this car and it has been completely restored to its original factory condition, save the original wheels, tires and hubcaps which are in my possession. The car as you see it is the same as when the Reynolds drove it home from the dealership including the original license plates and frames.
Although this car was completed March 13, 1963, it was sold as a 1964 model. Fewer than one hundred cars with round headlight covers were sold as 1964s. Most know the 1964 models to have square headlight covers. Studebaker made what they call “running changes”, random modifications to the cars on the assembly line rather than within a model year designation change. Thus making no clear separation between the 1963s and the 1964s. This car is unique in that there were fewer than fifty, white, automatic, R2s with the custom orange upholstery ever produced.
