  • Another "cheap" Avanti!

    Picked up my Craigslist Avanti yesterday. 1963 R1/auto, good floors and hog-troughs, engine/transmission out of car, as is most everything else. Crankshaft looks great, block has no wear/ridge at all. Car had 108,000 miles when the previous owner started restoring it. Car has a lot of extra parts like an extra Prestolite dual point and a Delco window distributor. Also came with a bunch of model cars, literature,etc. Not a bad deal for $1500!

        Was that the Avanti that was for sale on Ebay several times from Maryland? If so, I wish I had known you were so close (maybe ten miles from me). Regardless, it looks you've done OK.
