1963 Studebaker Avanti (3 'n 1) Stock, Custom, Drag (1/25) Original

Released in 1965 and made in the USA.

We received this kit from a high-end collection. The plastic is crisp and the chrome remains bright. We have sealed a few loose parts inside, as well as the glass and tires. The box has been resealed for protection and care. please note the box has sustained slightly weathering from over fifty years in storage.

The Avanti was publicly introduced on April 26, 1962, simultaneously at the New York International Automobile Show and at the Annual Studebaker Shareholders' Meeting. Rodger Ward, winner of the 1962 Indianapolis 500, received a Studebaker Avanti as part of his prize package, thus becoming the first private owner of an Avanti. A Studebaker Lark convertible was the Indianapolis pace car that year and the Avanti was named the honorary pace car. Production problems and supplier delays plagued the early Avanti's. Sadly, in December of 1963, Studebaker closed its production facilities in Southbend, Indiana, sounding the apparent death knell to the new Avanti. However, in 1964, the Avanti name, tooling and plant space were sold to two South Bend, Indiana, Studebaker dealers, Nate Altman and Leo Newman, the first of a succession of entrepreneurs to manufacture small numbers of Avanti replicas and new design cars through 2006. The original Studebaker Avanti has been described as one of the more significant milestones of the postwar industry. Similarly, with opening doors and hood, and tons of optional parts the AMT Avanti kit from the original Trophy series has been described as one of the milestones of plastic automotive kit engineering. Don't miss your chance to own it!
