The Studebaker Avanti was one of the industry’s most imaginative and sensational vehicles. For the Avanti’s 60th anniversary, the Museum will explore the Avanti’s improbable origin story and its place in the 1963 automotive landscape. The exhibit will look at contemporary reviews and road tests as well as promotional materials and advertisements. Additionally, the exhibition will discuss the Avanti’s early production difficulties and its life beyond Studebaker. This exhibition will open on April 4 and will be on display through Oct. 30, 2022.
