  1. I have absolutely no involvement in this car which I stumbled across while looking for parts for my project, but I have spoken to the individual selling and the PO who did the work and think this car deserves consideration for anyone who is looking for an original Studebaker chassis update with a Chevrolet drivetrain plus more. Here is the link to the Craigslist ad https://akroncanton.craigslist.org/cto/d/wadsworth-1964-studebaker-avanti/6801197062.html And here is most of the ad 1964 Studebaker Avanti Restomod - $12500 (Wadsworth) OH 1964 Studebaker Avanti VIN: R-4692 condition: excellent cylinders: 8 cylinders drive: rwd fuel: gas odometer: 98968 title status: clean transmission: automatic Restomod 1964 Studebaker Avanti. Very clean inside and out!! Vin: R-4692. 1969 Corvette 350 motor, carburetion and electronics by Automotive Electronic, Jaguar XKE brakes built by J&H Jaguar Service, Ferrari headlights by Marchal, body work by Jeff Scott & Jim Remick, paint by Remick Custom Paint, framework by Mike Martin of A&M Scheffer Fabrication, upholstery by Benny's. Owners manuals included.
  2. Thank you. I will PM you with what I know I need for sure (there may be more) but we will start with the list I know. Thanks.
  3. I do not see any ads on that CL except for a cool restomod, but I do need a few parts to make my car functional, hood latch, wiper assembly, etc. my email is michaelstroz@gmail.com and I’d appreciate hearing from you. Thanks
  4. Well, it's gone and I say good riddance. I hope that if someone got it, they got a smoking deal well below the asking $11500. Here's part of an email I got from someone who had knowledge of the car via a report from an Avanti club member. "... He just called to tell me the car is beyond rough. The paint looks like a $300. job. The interior would need either replaced or re-dyed. There are cracks in both front and rear bumpers. The rear windows have not worked for 20 years. The top works but is patched. The owner is selling it to buy another either '87 or '88 Avanti conv. In other words, he would rather sell it and buy another one, than fix this one." Also in a subsequent conversation, there was significant interior water damage noted and a non-standard gauge... I had three knowledgable Avanti Club members telling me to walk away. I never was that serious with the mileage discrepancy noted in the CarFax, so it was easy to accept their recommendations. Just too much to try and bring back.
  5. it’s been looked at and it’s very rough. Maybe at best a parts car. More to follow.
  6. I agree that there are red flags with the buyer and a 0 feedback and really no discription and not a lot of pictures either. Carfax shows the car in NY for most of its life and a mileage discrepancy which might just be clerical. And it shows a FL transfer in about 2004 and very few miles since then... Inspection is a must for sure. And it didn’t sell with a different seller last year when it was offered for about $15000. Still tempting.
  7. All, I'm going to look at "My new 81 Avanti II" on Wednesday. It has 80,000 miles and is represented by the owner who is an Avanti Club member to be in excellent shape. But what should I be looking for/at? I expect to get to my mechanic to look at the mechanicals. There may be an issue with the sunroof but outside of that what to evaluate? Thanks in advance for any input.
  8. I'm in Chicago and have come across a 64 R2 4 speed that I'd like an expert to check out for me. It appears to be decent but it has sat in a dry garaged area in Detroit for several decades. However the seller, the heir, represents it is now roadworthy and registered. But I am concerned about the overall mechanicals and possible rust. I need boots and eyes on a car to make a decision. I would gladly pay to have an Avanti knowledgeable individual check it out. And if I am posting in the wrong area for these kinds of requests, I'd really appreciate knowing that too. Thanks in advance. Rgds, Mike
