This might be a good buy. Provided the underside is not rusted away. R2 and power steering.

My fravorite color scheme, white with orange seats.
Looks like a freshly rechromed rear bumper inside. I wonder how the vinyl seats and dashpad are....not to mention the rust of the valve covers.
If the cosmetics are okay, you could do an engine rebuild and still be in good shape.

I'd want lots of chassis pictures since it's in the heart of the rust belt.

As a prophet once said "there is nothing more expensive, than a cheap Avanti".......

I am much too young to have ever known a prophet.

My favorite color in the whole world is Orange, so whit with Orange seats...love it. That would be a great price is there was alot of "good" chassis pics.

JDP, I love that "rust belt"...too funny. I would be worried about the under carriage with a rusty motor and badges, what are the odds that the least attended to parts are clean and shiney with no rust?

Love the car though.

I'm not surprised. With 52K miles, the interior looks like it will clean up great with no typical tears on the drivers seat. Also with the original white paint you know whats underneath. That car has a lot of potential.
