  • Long Island Avanti Craigs List

    I happened to be trolling Craigs list and came across this nice looking Avanti..........not terribly expensive considering the condition and recent work.

    Anyone forum members know this car?

        I wonder what the explanation is for photos of an R2 (check what appears to be '63 style Supercharged emblems) described as an R1 with factory a/c? I'm not saying this isn't a real car for sale, but there are questions the seller would have to address for a serious and knowledgeable buyer.

            Heard from the owner.........the first owner put those on himself and he (the second owner) did not want to remove them and have to deal with paint/blend issues.

            Sorta like 'full race hub caps' :-)

                The selling price for Avantis is too low for some reason. The price for the disassembled Avanti parts that JDP sold proves it. Can we be contributing to the low price if we sell too cheap? We have talk on this forum about "Saving" and not parting out Studebakers, but as low as the price is for an Avanti, if I decide to sell my R2 I will be better off parting it out. And JDP, in all humbleness, if you buy Studebakers cheap and sell cheap, some might like to see you switch over to Ford, Chev., or other makes. Of course this applies to others that find a real low price for a Studebaker and flip it for a small profit. I hope this does not make any enemies.

                  Allen, I did the parting out on JDPs Avanti. The only reason he parted out this car was due to the fact that so many parts were missing. The car was stripped down to the very last nut, bolt and clip. It would have been a monumental task for anyone to put this car back together. Also, it would have cost double the cars worth just to put it back together. JDP buying cars cheap and reselling them cheap does not keep Avanti prices down. The total number of Avantis he has sold over the last several years is minimal compared to the total number of sales across the country. I don't believe it has had any impact on the NADA values. Avanti values have been creeping up through the years. The primary reason for the low Avanti prices is the fact the cars are connected to the Studebaker name. Studebakers in general are now beginning to gain respect in the collector car circles. As they are more desired, their value will grow. By the way, you have not made an enemy here. Its good to hear others opinions.

                    That reminds me of an Avanti in the CT & NY area that the owner kept switching back and forth between supercharger and A/C. The last owner that I know of retired to TN. I don't know what happened to the car.

                      I think elements of what you say are true, but it's a problem everywhere.
                      Everytime there's a low priced Avanti for sale we get the "nothing more expensive than a cheap Avanti " quoted by someone(sorry JDP I think it will be on your tombstone). No wonder people are a little wary of them and don't want to pay a fair price or any price. I would have thought that quote would have applied to almost every vehicle made especially my Gt Hawk.
                      I think we all know that car restoration is an expensive business, but we are into it for different reasons so I believe the Avanti gets harshly treated in that regard.
                      Personally I think the prices of Avanti's are low (not because of the Studebaker name as the Avanti 2's is cheaper ) but because hardly anyone knows they exist. How may times do we read on this forum about people being stopped and asked about their cars or people all around their cars at a show(this also applies to Studes in general).
                      It's hard to build a market when know one knows the product exists.
                      The other reason is Stude people themselves. We don't have the confidence to ask a high price for our cars.

                      Sometimes I think we are our own worsed enemies.

                      My opinion, no malice intended or directed at anyone.

                              It's a dilemma, you say we sell too cheap and when I offered the project Avanti for 5-6K under what we'll get in parts, others said I was asking too much. I don't set the market value for Avanti's, but I think the main factor in low resale is that they don't look like "old cars" and were in production in one form or another up until a few years ago.
                              I don't have any control over what the ebay bidders pay, the market does that. BTW, I'm usually blamed for pushing values up not down, that's a new twist. Your not making enemies by just sharing a opinion, BTW, but I can't switch hobby car brands after 50 years, even if I thought I effected values.
