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. appears that this car has had some midwest salt road exposure or lived near the beach.


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 rough!

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.
