          The seller really got my attention when he said "carbs" in the description. But not to be, it's an R1 not a R4 by looking at the engine pictures. But in any case, it is a very nice example and it will be interesting to see if it sells and at what price. Bob

            I saw this also, a very nice car with an over the top description. Is the wood grain steering wheel correct for that serial number?

                1963 Avantis with the all black interior (813 BKV) will have the wood grain accents including the wood grain steering wheel.

                  Agreed with the 813 BKV option. Not sure when it became available, but 63R4551 is a round headlight with the BKV option. It also has the round console knobs. I particularly like the typo on the order date 5/27/73!

                    I own R-4466, with the same mistake (order written 5/27/73) as to the date, and the same destination (99 Tag Las Vegas Driveaway). Destination of my car was Salt Lake City, Utah. I've always wondered if mine was one of the Avanti's taken to the Corporate/Dealer Meeting in Las Vegas in 1963, meant to be driven home by a dealer after the meeting. Looks like this car could have been it's stablemate if that 99 code is what it seems it could be?
