There was a 1965 Avanti II sold at the Mecum auction in Kansas City, MO last month. It was listed as condition 4 and sold for $6500.

1965 Avanti IIs are rarely seen. Is anyone famliar with this car or its previous or present owner?

No idea if it could be the same car or not but there was one that came from Louisiana? a year or so back that went that direction. It was junk when Dad went to Florida after it in about 1989. Dad said at the time it was the only car he had ever seen you could pick a place and put your hand through the frame (He was HOT because the seller assured before Dad left NC with the trailer that the frame "looked like a new car"). Apparantly it was put inside afterwards because it looked about the same when it was advertised a year or so ago. The hood had a small hole in it where the air cleaner bolt had rubbed through. Steve
