1980 Avanti II - $10000 (Newport News)

This car is 100% original with matching numbers. We are the third owners and had the car since 1986. It has been garage kept for most of that time. It sits in our garage now and rarely sees daylight. The car is a beautiful example, but needs more than I can give it now. While you could drive it home, it will need a lot of TLC to bring it back to showroom condition.

Powered by a Chevy L-82 hooked to a 350 Turbo transmission, this car will get up and go! Avanti is American made and the chassis is based on Studebaker design and uses their parts. Thankfully you can still get everything you need to do any repairs and restorations. The car has never been wrecked and any damage to the body is from being stored in the corner of a garage for too long. The leather interior and gasketing have gotten very dry over the years and will need to be replaced. It is 30 years old now and only has 94,000 miles. The valve cover gaskets have started to leak from sitting as does the rear main seal of the transmission. I can't stand to see the baby going downhill like this.

I would really like to see this unique car go to someone who appreciates it and will do it justice. Please call only if you are serious. If I want tire kickers, I'll just take it to the car shows ;-)

I listed this car yesterday and am very disappointed there are so many spammers out there. To be very clear, I will not take trades, will not finance, will not check on insurance rates for you, will not check into shipping prices out of the country, and certainly will not click on your links to check out your latest "hot" photos.
