My 1972 Avanti II. One of 127 made that year. The body is all one piece fiberglass built on a Studebaker Lark frame. Power plant is a Chevy 400/TH400, Edelbrock intake and Holley 4 bbl carb. It has Dana 44 rear end, Magnum 500 wheels, original to the 1972 build. Studebaker made about 4500 in 1963-64 and went out of business, the Avanti name was bought and were hand made with leftover parts from Studebaker, after those parts were depleted they outsourced from other manufacturers. The Studebaker Avanti was the fastest production car in the world upon its introduction, a completely stock Avanti could reach over 178 mph with its supercharged 289-cubic-inch engine. It broke 29 world speed records at the Bonneville salt flats. From 1965 - 1990, there were around 4000 made. Later there were varients made in 4 door (Chevy Carpice frame) and convertable (Monte Carlo frame). There is even a newer body style made on a Firebird frame.
