4647 Avantis were built by the Studebaker Corporation from June 1962 - December 1963. 1389 models were manufactured in 1962. 3258 units were manufactured in 1963. Of these, 2418 were 1963 models, 30 were transitional, 54 were 1964 models with round headlights and 764 were 1964 models throughout....

45 cars in 1965, 59 cars in 1966, 66 cars in 1967, and 100 cars in 1968. Engine sizes include: 1965-68 - 327's /1969-70 - 350's     Ref.. The 1970 model year started with RQA-0315, the 1969 model year ended with RQA-0313. Ref...


Newman - Altman spent 1965 re-engineering the car for the GM engine, upgraded upholstery and other amenities. There were no official 1965 models. Any cars titles as a 1965 are rare, most are regarded as '66' models.
In '65, the R-series engine options under Studebaker also disappeared and the vehicle numbering system went from "R-xxxx' to 'RQA-xxxx'. They adapted the GM 327 Cubic inch/300 HP through a custom bellhousing and coupled it to the existing Powershift (FMX type) transmission. The remainder of the car stayed, as Studebaker had produced it, with the exception of the emblems.

The installation of the new engine required the body to be pivoted upward in front, in order to accomodate its dimensions. This was accomplished by using varying thicknesses of steel shims along the frame mounting points. The resulting, additional, three inch gap between the fender and top of the wheel was remedied by installing filler pieces at the top of the wheel opening.
The 327 engine remained until 1969, when the 350/300 was installed, again coupled with the original Powershift (FMX) transmission. The first 350 equipped Avanti II was RQA0315...a very late RQA model. Ref..
The first 400 cubic inch engined Avanti was the first 1972 Avanti...RQB1801. That was with a 2-barrel carburetor. The first 400 cubic engine Avanti with a 4-barrel carb was RQB2050 (1974 model year). Ref..
For those that need a trivia point, the "II" in the Avanti II emblem was made from the Lark's V-8 emblem, by cutting off the first 2 characters of the "VIII"

    In 2003 it was crushed in a building collapse after a heavy snow storm.
    The damage was severe enough that it was declared "totaled" though the
    roof and glass were not damaged. The roof rafters came down on the fenders
    and the hog trough on the driver's side buckled. I sold it to Wyman's
    Auto Body in Gorham ME. The car was (later) sold to a person in North
    Conway, NH who rebuilt it...... That was sometime in 2004.
