Avanti lovers out there. What do you make of the yellow avanti that Kelly once owned. I didn't think Avanti came in yellow. also there is something not right about the center console. It doesn't have air but it sure looks like it. I know the R2 did not have air. It has the 63 heater controls.

Those are not stude wheels

I asked the seller about the vents. Following is the reply,

"To the best of my knowledge Most Avantis where built as R1's with A/C and most where pre sold, at the time of build if a car was to be an R2 for a few more dollars the A/C was removed and a Paxton Supercharger would go in place of the A/C compressor, you will find that most R2s have A/C vents and controls..ive seen round vents and square vents..i also owned and just sold one of the more rare cars automatic,A/C,Supercharged, Black on Black."

...interesting!

What's that guy smoking? A dealer removing a/c and adding a blower on a 10.25:1 compression R1? If that was the case there would be a lot more blown up Stude engines than we're aware of.

I guess some people can't be educated...or they simply don't want to be. It makes one wonder how many unhappy customers he's sold cars to with his line of BS.

I had extensive phone visits with Juan the seller of both Kelly cars. He didn't drive them and imported them from Cancun for resale. The yellow one sold for $16,664. There was confusion over registration in FL and title transfer. Juan made up most of what he told people about the cars. He really didn't know or care.
