This car was for sale and the deal fell through.....too good to scrap for parts
First off, I am not an Avanti fan, I saved this from the crusher to
pass on to you. I Do not know all the details of these cars and will
not try to act like I do. It is and old car. I am not connected to
studebaker or avanti clubs, I am just a car guy selling this gem.
For those of you that are avanti fans you will probably be
disappointed about the condition of this car and shake your head
wondering how this car got in this condition, Pretty simple, It has sat
outside for years, at least 20 out in the country in the weeds, before
that it looks like it was part of a college experiment on how cars hold
up to salt.
Saying that this car has been sitting since the early 90's out at a
friends ranch here in San Diego county where it is real dry and hot.
But....it appears that this car has had some midwest salt road exposure
or lived near the beach.
CAR IS RUSTY, RUSTED, HAS RUST !!!!
No Paperwork, no title, no registration....You will get a california bill of sale.
Highlights: Interior is all there, although old and fairly
complete, it needs help. Looks like someone fiddled with the ignition
switch, it is hanging down, other that that it looks old, it smells old
and needs your love.
This car is rough. Has no engine, repeat I do not have the engine.
I do have the transmission, Rockers rusty and rusted through, frame in
my mind is excessively rusted.
Body, it appears that this was a gold car, painted very horribly
black, with some equally horrible bondo work here and there. Body is
Chrome and trim , rough and rusty
Glass, windshield is cracked, all other glass seems okay and not cracked, but does have a crappy tint job.
Wheels, The aluminum Minilite wheels I put on just for rollers, the
two front wheels are not in this auction....I keep those, you will get
some standard steel rollarounds on all four corners
Brakes: untested and untried, the car has no front calipers and I do not have them
Hood is off for pictures, I have the hood.
Car is located in Imperial Beach California, 91932 I would invite
all studebaker guys to come and look at it....or if you are long
distance ..get in touch with a stude club member and send him down for
appraisal and a looky loo.
Shipping or transport is up to you ...But I will deliver to the
following counties: San Diego County, Orange County, Riverside County,
Any more than that you would have to compensate me well and talk me in
to it. Car rolls fine but has no brakes
Please inquire here if you want to talk to me, Also if you need a close up or any more details let me know.
