Gil's R2

'63 was "updated" by Avanti Motors in the early 1970's.

Studebaker always envisioned a series of running changes and retrofits of refinements rather than distinct model year changes. This one went further than most... There was front body damage in early 70's, early round headlight parts not available at the time.

Car originally sold in Chicago area. Second owner had car 45 years, the Avanti accompanied the family's move to California.

Updated battery tray location, early 70's style ventilation ports for engine compartment cooling in inner fenders.

Gradual progress on the details...
