The basics to look for are the same for a Studebaker Avanti as with any older

vehicle, so a good inspection will give you the same results as say a 55 Chevy.

With the Avanti, since its fiberglass, someone who is familar with older Corvettes

could be helpful in finding the signs there has been an accident, or a repair.

One area that many are concerned with, are the sub-floor boxes, these run down

the sides of the car and stiffen the frame up. They have a tendoncy to rust

away and even though replacements are available, they are not cheap to do.

Just keep in mind you are buying a OLD car, so its going to need work, unless

you have some documentation that things have been done, in that case have

the person inspecting it CONFIRM that those things are done, usually the price

you pay will reflect whats been "repaired", be careful not to get scammed!
