  • Mecum Auction Results

    In addition to the 55 pickup sold at Mecum's Kissimmee Auction for $4,000 with comments on this previously noted on the Forum, does anyone know what the 56 Golden Hawk sold for last Friday? There were also 2 Avantis there and it would be nice to know what they sold for as well. Any knowledge out there?

      Without knowing these two Avantis, the auction prices garnered seem high or at least reasonable for Avantis of those years.

        When I saw the $11,500 for the coupe, I thought it was at the lower end of what you would expect an Avanti II to go for. The Mecum site did not have a picture or any info about the car, so we are in the dark about the condition of the car, but I've never seen a car in poor shape run through any Mecum auctions. From prices I've seen around on different sites, the '87 convertible sounded like a really good buy @ $15,000. I'm used to seeing convertibles being listed for sale in the $25 - $28 K range.

          Try searching eBay completed sales and other real sale numbers, such as other auctions. I think that you will discover 1987 Avantis selling for much less than what some have asked for their cars. You can ask anything for a car. Value is established at the price that a seller and a buyer agree to.

                A 87 Convert, for $15,000.00 that is a steal unless a junker, other II's less yes but not a convert.

                  To: 60ragtop,-------- 32K for a nice Golden of any year is beginning to sound kind of cheap! No what I mean?

                    Not a junker. This was a nice car.

                      The car was certainly worth $32k IMHO. There were a few things needing attention such as missing mylar on the interior door panels. But generally it was a nice example.

                        I am the new lucky owner of the auctioned Golden Hawk. I have been looking for a good 56 GH for some time and am very pleased with this purchase.
                        Planning on getting its FIVA papers then entering it into the Italian Mille Miglia in 2013.

                            Great Purchase, welcome to the forum and good luck at the Mille Miglia. Along with the welcome I will offer the standard recommendation to join the Studebaker Drivers Club if you haven't already. Great resources and good fellowship too. A significant membership exists in the UK and Europe.

                            Enjoy your Golden Hawk!
