A client needs a serial plate from a Avanti just to ship a chassis out of country, any help ?


"Hello John,

You might remember I purchased R5410 from you earlier this year. The car arrived in Australia the day before I flew out of the country. I am in the USA at the moment traveling around doing car stuff and having fun!
I've come across a rolling Avanti body/frame with most parts gone from
from the car. It is also missing the VIN tag and has no title! If I
purchased the remains of this car I currently wouldn't be able to export it out of the USA. The title problem I could probably solve but to even start the process I would need a VIN tag on the car. I wondered if you have any VIN tags from cars you have completely parted out?

Cheers, Leon Martin.

How about the vin stamped in the rear crossmember? Is it visible? I have never checked my Avanti's for the stamped vin....(being they have the welded vin tag under the hood on the frame)...maybe I should!

I forgot the Avanti has a tubular rear cross member rather than the regular Stude "U" channel cross member. No vin visible there.

If I remember correctly there were a bunch of unused vin plates in the hardware bins at Newman & Altman a few years ago. Someone here probably has some.

I have the plate for 63R 1491 that you could have. It was involved in a fire and I parted out the remains. It was part of a 2 Avanti deal and I didn't get or ask for a title for the parts car.
