Stylish and fast, the 1963 Avanti was the last ditch effort of one of America's greatest carmakers. But despite a host of technological innovations and a design from the legendary Raymond Loewy, the Avanti's $5,000 price tag proved too much for most buyers, and Studebaker went the way of Hudson, Packard and many other famous marques. But the Avanti, miraculously, survived. Over the next three decades, Avanti lovers would keep the dream alive, buying the rights to the groundbreaking auto and producing them on a limited basis for the collector's market. AVANTI tells the remarkable story of this classic car. Meet the devoted buffs who kept the it in production, and get an up-close look at concours-quality examples, from an original 1963 Studebaker model to one of the last Avantis ever built. Discover how Loewy whose other designs include Sky Lab, the Lucky Strike logo and the interior and exterior of Air Force One created the classic design in just a few weeks, and climb behind the wheel for a test drive.
