This Supercharged, Standard Production, all Fiberglass, 289 cu in. 8 Cylinder Car, is basically the same car in which Andy Granatelli, set 29 New National Stock Car Records in 12 hours on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

The Speed attained was 178.5 MPH. At that time it was the worlds Fastest Production Car. The Avanti was designed in six weeks by Raymond Loewry at the request of Sherwood Egbert, who had been President of the Studebaker-Packard Corp. for only 2 months, before asking Loewry to design the Avanti.

The first car came off the  asssembly line  approximaetly 18 months after first inception.

This vehicle has all matched serial numbers from its production work order and was restored using almost all the original parts to a 100% factory correct condition.

All Disassembly and Reassembly was accomplished by the owners over a period of 10 years at their home.

1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner

Mark Moskowitz

Gastonia, NC

American Antique 1949-1969 or American Muscle


I am the third owner of this 1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner. The car sports a Borg Warner T-10 and a 390 c.i. powerplant with the original three deuces, factory competition headers and factory dual point ignition. ts first owner campaigned it on the dragstrips of New Jersey and claimed a brief stint as an NHRA record holder. He and wife Peggy were reunited with the convertible at the Pinehurst Concours and shared the inscription in the glovebox placed during their honeymoon in 1961. The car can be seen at shows, on rallies and on Carolina roads.

1965 Pontiac GTO owned by Darwin & Patricia Ludi of Chula Vista, CA

Class: American Muscle Car

We have owned this Montero Red 65 GTO since December of 1989. The car is a matching numbers 389 that came with a a tri power 2 speed automatic.

Options include power steering, power brakes, power antenna, AM/FM radio, and 3:55 gears with positraction. Car was restored 5 years ago and still retains its beauty. Only event it has been entered in was a Goodguys event 15 years ago. In 2005 (Super Bowl 40) our GTO was selected to be filmed racing down the quarter mile against a 70 Chevelle SS with a 396. Our GTO represented the Seattle Seahawks. The race was shown on the turbotron after the coin flip at the Silver Dome in Detroit. 

I believe we are the 4th owners of the car which was originally sold new in at Clohecy Pontiac in Detroit, Michigan.

Out 65 was displayed at the 40th Anniversary of the GTO in Detroit. That was the year when the 2004 GTO was introduced.
