Avanti Motors Avanti

After the closure of Studebaker's South Bend factory on December 20, 1963, cars bearing the name of its celebrated Avanti sports coupe continued to be produced by a series of entrepreneurs, initially from left-over Studebaker components and later from General Motors and Ford chassis and engines. These are not replica cars, for they were made by Avanti Motor Company. They have created a following by some enthusiasts and collectors.
