I imagine that the only way an unmodified 1963 Studebaker Avanti can go 120mph is straight down after falling off a cliff. Blowing out the rear window wouldn't be the first thing to worry about.

(Yes, the Avanti is a "sporty" model, but 120mph is pretty fast for a car from the early 60's - big engines tend not to have the high revs needed for a high top speed. But there's a reason why they don't make Studebakers anymore. They weren't very good or popular, and there wasn't much money for investing in good quality manufacturing or design.)
