Not mine, was mentioned on Barnfinds.com
Poor thing. R1 auto. $4,999 starting bid. Isn't the a/c panel from a newer II?
Has extra chassis available.

Love Avanti's and have since day one. Always sad to see one that has been allowed to deteriorate so far. It will cost far more to restore this than to buy an already restored or nicely preserved one.
The time, labor, and expense involved would scare me off even if the asking price was $49.99

The a/c panel is from an Avanti II and the console and heater controls are from either a '64 or an Avanti II.

There is another '63 Avanti on eBay in the Salvage Cars section. It has the woodgrain interior package, A/C, and power windows. It is being sold without the engine, but it is available for an extra $500. It is in Florida.

Didn't someone here once say that there is nothing more expensive than a cheap Avanti?
Well said in this case.
