Accidently won the car on a lowball eBay bid? Gee, that's too bad! I should be so unfortunate! I don't see the paint problem from here, but cars can be refinished...

Another beautiful car in your garage! trophy image

Some of the design team on the avanti project went on to design the second generation barracuda, so we're kind of related...sweet

1971 Avanti II Sport Coupe (RQB)

Photo of a 1971 Avanti II Sport Coupe (RQB)


I accidentially won this on ebay a few months back when I put in a very low bid and no one challanged me!? It is a 1971 Avanti II, what we call the RQB series. While still resembling the Studebaker version, a lot of the parts are now from different manufactures. It is equiped with a Chevy 350 V8. Sometime in the mid 1980's this car was re furbished by Blake at the factory and spouts a number of later options including a 700R4 auto. trans. One of its major problems is the paint problem which drove Avanti Motors into financial ruin.
