  1. Sold on eBay for the asking price. New owner in Georgia.
  2. Thanks for the encouragement. That may have helped a bidder make the reserve after only two days. Now we have to wait a few more days for the auction end to see if someone tops that.
  3. My fine Avanti is now at eBay. Item number 293181704081. Low miles. Auction with a reserve. Paid transport. If interested call to discuss and I might whisper the reserve.
  4. Which engine? Don't be discouraged by lack of attention at eBay. Four door Avantis there have not done well. One has to be an Avanti "collector".
  5. More interesting than the car (to me) is Sherwood Egbert who is credited with Avanti development. Unfortunately he did not survive to see its popularity.
  6. Gunny, You really didn't have to explain. Not buying from a Cowboy was a meant as prevarication. All Avanti-dom knows how much you care about the mark. You have often advised me.
  7. Then why oh why is he GUNSLINGER and his eBay moniker is "double-b-ranch?
  8. I have listed other cars on both. I am familiar. Sale is determined by price you want for the car. Little else.
  9. Who would buy a used car from a Cowboy?
  10. I am familiar with BaT. Their "sponsorship" does get higher prices. They require extensive pictures and they write the copy based on what the seller tells them. recorded information, and their knowledge of the market and prices. They also charge quite a bit for this service. Most BaT listings have a reserve. About 20% don't make the reserve and don't sell even after BaT tooling.
  11. Please suggest a starting bid. Should it be a reserve or "no reserve" listing? (It is insured for $20K.) Is the World market for Avanti improving or declining?
  12. I agree. Very inconsistent. You see if I am too high I will not have any prospects. If at market I will loose money. Hence the dilemma. For those who are serious call me for the details. 713 703 1207
  13. I should have done that first. Sorry.
  14. I don't have a price yet. If you call me we can discuss and I will tell you what I paid. Dave Pyle 713 203 1207.
  15. I'm about to list my 1982 which is a low miles 305 which needs nothing. Interested?

    Oil Pressure

    So it wasn't your gauge. Since my engine is the 305 with only 35K miles with good compression I do not want to have it rebuilt. Replaced maybe with a rebuilt 350. What is the continuing risk?

    Oil Pressure

    What would be a "gauge of known accuracy"? I'm not mechanical.

    Oil Pressure

    At idle when hot the oil pressure in my 1982/305 drops close to "0". Engine accelerates well and runs smoothly in all regimes. Makes no unusual noises. Has 30K miles. Does not overheat or use oil. Should I worry? Use thicker oil?
  19. I believe that Mr. Dame's R2 just sold at Bring A Trailer amid frenzied last minute bidding. Perhaps he could give us a report. And since the price was published let us know that.
  20. Not in my experience. My last auction/sale was "no reserve" and all the action came in the last three minutes.
  21. I've been following your car at BaT. There I am oldone2. You just lowered the reserve which I would not have done. BaT often gets reserve and beyond. You have been getting reasonable attention. Avanti's are not hot at BaT, but are one of the best auctions to get what you want. There are reasons.
  22. Perhaps a little off the subject, but I have repeatedly tried to find Avanti owners in the Houston area. I know there are some because I tried to start an AOAI chapter here some years ago. Just bought another Avanti and look for nearby advice. Can't get answers from management. A chapter is listed at the AOAI Web site, but not in the magazine. Enlighten me if you know anything about this. Alone in Houston...
  23. Would a purchase inspection have uncovered these flaws?
