  • Nice Avanti factory photo

    Here is a nice Avanti photo showing a black Avanti, and early black SN blower. It has the odd cut off McCulloch badge.

      Also note the black air filter housing........I guess the chrome had already rusted!

        Are the valve covers chrome plated ? Barely visible through the windshield there might be a inside rear view mirror mounted on the dash. This might be a prototype car.

          I do not believe that that picture represents a production Avanti.

            I agree this is not a production car. Notice the wide whitewall tires. I believe the hood mounting pad for the hood hinge is different from a production car. On the firewall barely visible a round canister, I believe this is the sending unit for the tachometer. Every other prototype photo I have ever seen before has been of a white car, cool to see a dark color one.

              Definitely a prototype Avanti not representing production colors, including supercharger.
