Mecum Montery Avantis


Recommended Posts

Two R2's sold today at Mecum's Monterey auction.  A white R2, 4 speed hammered at $90,000.00 and a Turquoises R2 4 speed hammered at $115,000.  Both are nice cars but hardly perfect.

WOW!  Those should be new records for R2 cars.  It is to be hoped a rising auction price lifts all Avanti.

If you're selling one yes.....If you're an average guy trying to purchase an Avanti ....no.

One thing I've liked about Avantis (and Studebakers in general), is that they've always been affordable to buy!

I know what you mean. I'm casually looking for an R2 but won't be ready to buy until I make some space. However, I can always find a place to stash something if I have to.

The fellow who bought an Avanti for $100 really did get a bargain then.
