    Yes, WPC, I know that CDN is about par with U$D, but I do believe $42.5K is high for a driver, albiet an excellent R4 driver which is faster than most R2s.

    What is your estimate.
    1. There's no NADA or KBB on such a one-of-one Avanti. However, it's one I'd love to own.
    2. Dead of winter is the worst time to sell on eBay.
    3. No mention of rear axle ratio. Doesn't matter too much as it's an 8-10 MPG ride at best, but is it freeway-driveable or a short-trip-only?
    4. Also, I'd want to know the compression ration and/or cold cranking compression. I've had too many hot rod Studes ping like a poltergeist in hot weather. Probably built correctly, but it's a question I'd have to have answered.
    5.Minor points, but the "full History Report" link doesn't work and also, I didn't find it in Bob's registry under R3571.

    Awaiting further developments, but it hasn't had much action thus far.

      Two questions, just for my own curiosity:

      1. Would this car qualify for the Pure Stock Drags?

      2. Would the Halibrands only be suitable for show (too brittle and dangerous for everyday use)?

        1. Would this car qualify for the Pure Stock Drags?
        IIRC, the R4 was only available in 1964 models. In any case, this engine has non-stock pistons, which make it better for daily use, but not a Pure Stock engine.

        2. Would the Halibrands only be suitable for show (too brittle and dangerous for everyday use)?
        Yes, No, Maybe. This has been discussed here at length and no proof one way or the other has emerged.

            Congrats, You couldn't build it for that. I really liked this Avanti when it was first posted.

            Well bought, as they say.
