You know what they say about "cheap" Avantis...

Don't think that one is cheap enough :)

I bought an R2 in the Fall in better condition for $1000 less than that.

It does have a rarely seen color combination. Must have been a looker!

Interior indicates it has indeed set outside a great deal of time in Texas...

Doesn't look "cheap" to me. Another $20K and you may have a $12K car.

The production order does not indicate that it was a "factory A/C" car.

What do you guys think a restored R1 is worth? Just curious.

When I said add $20K, I didn't mean to imply that would get y0u a restored car, just one that was a driver.

To answer your question directly, $30K (less than the cost to restore one).

I know where you can buy a nice R-2 for way less than this on will cost to get even close.

It is a "transition 1964", one of about 50 or so, and worth saving for that reason. I particularly like the transition '64s. Let's hope the seller is sane enough to sell it for much less and there is a buyer out there who is insane enough to take on that rough a car.

Price seems a bit on the high side, but any non rusted Avanti should be worth 5000 if it is complete, and not wrecked. Running it should be worth the asking price. One I painted, but not a frame off, sold for 59K. R1 with air. Ebay is just one venue for sales. Higher end auctions, and private consignment houses are a better venue, even if you end up paying 20% commision if you get 50% more than an Ebay price.

I am a fan of the color as well - car below was in Macungie, PA. some years back.

I agree!
I never could figure out why or how people could let their cars get in such a condition, especially one that is rare and so special.

I have a very nice dash from a 76 with nice after marker gauges, car is getting cut up and frame is going for scrap, most every thing else is gone.

If that Avanti were here in Canada at that price in Canadian dollars I would be a buyer. IF the hog troughs were solid.

I thought of them (their car) right off, but I don't remember it having those two "badges" on the front.

When the photos were taken, I am pretty sure the car had New Jersey historic plates on it.

Wish my dad would have had the drive to keep his Avanti in better working condition...

That reinforces my opinion that it is not Rodhouses' excellent Avanti.
