  1. On my 1991 conv I do not think there would be any way to reach up from the bottom to open the hood. Is the lever under the dash stuck and not moveable or has the cable that un locks the latches pulled out? On the door can you get the window down? You may be able to push a rod down along side the glass to press the lock/un lock lever?
  2. The workmanship looks fantastic, and what I can see of your garage it looks like you have a booth in there too. Can't wait to see the next batch of photos. Great Job.
  3. I do like the car, as I said it is a nice cruiser and is Quiet & Smooth driving, my wife likes that fact. I'm pretty sure it would not spin the tires on gravel and for sure you need to plan any accleration into traffic. It is a dog.,but looks good. I've kicked around selling it and buying something else already repowered and made quicker. Will attempt this week to investigate with the local hot rod shops to the cost and effort needed to swap in more power. As it is it runs as well as it can and has not given me a lick of problems power train wise. Have upgraded the radiator and now it run
  4. Have a 48,000 mile 1991 Avanti Conv that is in really nice looking shape. Has a few minor issues like the a/c doesn't work, but overall is really nice. It has the 305 slug of a motor, that runs perfectly just not really powerful and lacks the get up and go. I've toyed with the idea of pulling that 305 and dropping in a 350/or 383 chevy with some real power, changing the rear axle ratio and making it a fun hot rod. Need some opinions on if this will kill any resale value or ?? make it more desireable. As it is it gets a lot of thumbs up and is fun to drive, as it is quiet and comfortable and

    Avanti Paint!

    I thought they used enamel paints? So I say false
  8. I used this company to rebuild my rear window regualtors and motors for my 91 convertible. http://windowmotorworld.net/
  9. With the chevy 305 capable of mid 20's per gallon useage and a tank size of about 20 gallons I guess 425 miles.
  10. "Your car is number 12 of the 17 built." I was told 17 total for 1991, but only 7 convertibles and the others were 4 doors. He said mine/his was the last one built as a conv off the line. I have not been able to confirm any of that information. Makes for a good story to say the last of these styles was this as the last conv. But until I can find the real info and know it is the truth, I don't repeat it. I do say it was in the last small run of converibles for 1991.
  11. I own that one listed above out of California. The fellow I bought it from was 84 and the second owner and he had it about 24 years. I bought it and use it as much as possible here in Arizona. I was under the impression that it was not fiberglass but kevlar impregnated fiberglass. It is heavy and drives very well. Only changed the tires and wheels and some minor repairs for the 2.5 years I've had it. Always get thumbs up from other drivers when we have it out.
  12. I'm only guessing but the 1/4 glass would be something that could easily fail I would think.

    Avanti Sales!

    I recall seeing that name associated with Delorean if I remmber correctly/
  14. I purchased my used Model X in Raligh, NC and drove it to Prescott, Az, about 2300 miles. I think I stopped either 12 or 13 times to charge and spent 3 nights in motels. The farthest I went, I have 325 range, but that is from 100% full to zero charge and nobody should or would run that way, was 210 miles. The system would show me where to stop and for how long to get to the next charger system. Most stops were for 15 to 20 minutes, some 35-45 minutes and two for sure were 50 minutes. All depending on the range I needed, based on my speed or always running the speed limit and a touch over. In s
  15. I own a 2019 Tesla Model X and I have just as much fun as driving the Avanti, only the Tesla is so much quicker!! Both put huge smiles on my face😀
  16. Yes looks very much like my convertible body work only missing the gas fill location cut out.
  17. Just spotted this and if anyone is looking for a project, pretty reasonable, look here on Ebay Look Here
