breakout, coupes vs converts

Recommended Posts

per john hull's book there were 158 1989 avantis built, starting with #400, thru #557. bob johnson has ken kidwell's blown '89 as #563!  we all know the avanti numbers aren't etched in stone; could there be a documented breakdown between the number of coupes built vs converts? educated guesses welcome also.

I think that there were more convertibles than coupes for 1989.  I do not know how "educated" that is.  I partly based it on an AOAI Roster.

Only if someone retained the original Youngstown production records for that period of time.

Stranger things have happened!:)

looking at the aoai roster and pictures it appears that the kidwell car was entered twice, once as #536 and then as #563, the last two numbers apparently transposed. a great looking car but probably shouldn't be there twice!

Thank you!  Until confirmed otherwise, I will assume that it is 536.  I have noticed other Avantis entered twice.

Thanks for the heads-up / Always nice to have a 2nd pair of eyes on things / With the amount of data hat goes thru here, it's not hard to make a typo / It's been changed to -0536 until I get a verification from Ken...
