Re: Rare car! 1 day left on BAT.

the 1989 avanti was not built by studebaker, as the URL suggests. the last studebaker-built avanti was in 1963. by 1989, the production had been moved to youngstown, OH, where less than 500 were made.

if i myself wanted a car with a 305 and a TH350, i'd scour craigslist and get one of any number of decent '80's GM cars for sub-$2k, and leave this car for some other sucker.

the studebaker and post-studebaker avantis may be rare, but rare does not equate to being good.

i find this to be a bit of an odd-looking car. it is kinda cool, but it's not $8.5k cool, IMHO

also IMHO, as opposed to spending my hard-earned jack on this car, i'd get something truly awesome, like this (though this one has already been sold to a very lucky new owner).Edited 3 time(s). Last edit at 05/20/19 04:26PM by zeds_dead_baby.

One of these things is not like the others,

One of these things just doesn't belong,

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

Re: Rare car! 1 day left on BAT.

the car actually is pretty cool, and at the price its offered at, is not too bad a deal. hagerty values it at $9,500 for a condition of fair.

the part i don't get is why anyone would have paid $45,000 (almost $94,000 by today's standards) on this car. all they offered it in was a 305 auto. a 350 4-speed would have been so nice. there were definitely nicer, less antiquated cars available for much less money.

Re: Rare car! 1 day left on BAT.

$11k...no, thanks.

you can ask whatever you want for a vehicle. whether you get it or not is another thing.

hagerty values these at less than $30k in concours condition. seems like these sellers are a bit high.

that, and it's a question of supply and demand. if no one wants to pay over $11k for the one from BAT, these sellers may not have much luck getting what they want for theirs, considering they're asking more than they're worth.Edited 1 time(s). Last edit at 05/21/19 07:17PM by zeds_dead_baby.

Re: Rare car! 1 day left on BAT.

We'll track it and see what he gets for it. Being a convertible it will fetch a pretty good price.
