Report Searching for a 63-64 avanti to purchase in Avanti Pub Posted March 13, 2012 Yes, i realized that $8500 won't get me close to anything nice.. I appreciate the input and advice. at this time i am going to take a step back and figure out everything that i am looking for and re-evaluate my funds and continue my search. My Avanti was delivered yesterday. Here is a reality check. Unlikely you will find a drivable 1963-64 for any thing close to $8500. If it is not drivable bringing it home is lots more expensive because it would require 'closed' transport. If it is operable it can go on 'open' transport. For, say, 2000 miles that would cost $1200 or more. Lots of choices of open and closed. You go through a 'broker' who lines it up and to whom you pay a commission. The best Avanti I know about (a 1964) is about to close on eBay (and will not make reserve). It is what I would have bought and will be ~$20K. All the good advice you are getting here is for today. Tomorrow the choices will change. But unless you are prepared to make a commitment and have the funds all this is old news.
