      Alice Cooper and his car were written up in the Spring/Summer 2004 edition of Avanti magazine.

            Those just might be THE ugliest wheels I have EVER seen on an Avanti.
            YUCK!

              Chevy motor aside...not a bad looking car. Chrome & black wheels look okay on a black car, but I'm not a fan of low-profile tires.

              Two interesting things...
              Note aftermarket air. They put an air vent where the stock radio should be and an aftermarket radio on top of the console where the factory air should be. Weird. If Alica had the car custom built (as the ad implies) why not start with a factory AC car? There are lots out there.

              Look at the spare "Allstate" tire. Factory Original? Narrow (1-1 1/2") white wall, but see how the WW is right up against the wheel kind of like 50s style wide whites..is that correct?
              (I always thought that early 60s narrow whites had black between the white and the wheel?

                Regarding the AC system - note in the picture of the interior right side under the dash that the heater has been replaced by an after market AC/heater unit. Nice fit.

                  I couldn't wait for all the pictures to download on dial-up.

                  1963 Lark and Cruiser whitewalls were a narrow white stripe at the rim. 1963 Avanti whitewalls were a narrow white stripe about an inch from the rim. By 1964, like this Avanti, all of the whitewalls were a narrow white stripe about an inch from the rim.

                        That Avanti has very nice body work and paint! Probably has a KILLER Stereo!

                        Funny what unknowing sellers will say to sell something they know nothing about! [:0]

                        It supposedly has 6750 original miles! Like that new digital speedo is going to show the ORIGINAL miles! LOL!

                        And then there's those UGLY 19 in. Konig wheels and Low Profile Pirellis...UGH!

                          I don't usually like low-profile tires and huge wheels on anything, but they do seem to work on the Avanti. It looks like a very tastefully-done job.

                          I'd say the Corvette motor is the reason the front sits higher. I seem to recall that the early Avanti IIs had "patch" panels installed to minimize the size of the wheel opening which was made more awkward-looking because of the raised front.

                          I wonder if anyone has pictures of the Avanti that was fitted with Sears parts (Allstate battery, tires, etc.). Did it have whitewalls or blackwalls? That would be helpful in figuring out if that spare would be original.

                            My opinion is, that the spare IS correct! If you look really close you can see that it is a narrow white wall in the traditional sense of the word, that is it has the correct black between the rim and whitewall, be it only 1/4 in. wide but it's there!

                            Of course we all know that on that car, originality means NOTHING, since it is already destroyed with the C***y engine, trans and after market air cond. !

                            The U.S. Royals that early '63 Larks had, did have the whitewall all the way to the wheel, but not the '64 Avanti Allstates! [^]

                              I agree. I'll give him $1 for it.
