1987 Avanti Coupe This Avanti coupe is one of about 200 that had been produced during 1987 by the New Avanti Motor Co. in South Bend, Indiana.  The Champagne Pink paint is original as is the burgundy interior.  It was first owned by the Avanti dealer of Buffalo, New York.  I am its third owner.  Its VIN number is 12AAV1220H1000102 and the title is free and clear of any liens or other encumbrances.  The actual current odometer reading at the time of this listing is 24,779 miles. Ten years ago, I put the car into storage with the hopes of one day completely restoring the Avanti.  I?m not getting any younger and the time to sell has arrived.  Prior to placing it into storage, I would drive the Avanti around town on a regular basis. The Avanti is being offered in ?as is? and ?where is? and is in need of some TLC. The 5 liter (305 CID) V8 / 3 speed automatic transmission drivetrain is in working condition but the engine could use a tune up.  The Avanti has 24,779 original miles and is accident free.  The exterior paint is in relatively good condition other than an area immediately below the gas fill.  It appears that someone in the past had overfilled the gas tank and the paint finish has become discolored.  Many of the weather seals appear to be in need of replacement. I have not checked every component of the Avanti for workability and would not be surprised if other issues may have developed during its time in storage?after all, it is a 33 year old car. Various maintenance and repair items recently have been completed including:Set of four new 215/60R15 tires w/balancingNew battery installed2 new headlights installedNew windshield wipers installedOil and filter changeNew front and rear shock absorbers installedNew rear brake lines installedBrake fluid flush and new DOT3 fluid This Avanti coupe was built by the New Avanti Motor Co. using a 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo frame and drivetrain.  General Motors parts are widely available at most auto supply stores and most repair shops are well versed in the maintenance and repair of such a vintage car. At some point (prior to my ownership) anew stainless steel exhaust system was installed.  This system included the set of chromed stainless steel exhaust tips.  The original steel wheels had been replaced with aluminum Weld Racing ?Rodlite? 15?wheels.  Additionally, an air dam scoop was added to assist with the radiator cooling. (This air dam can be easily removed from the underside of the frame.) The original Blaupunkt radio was shot and replaced with a newer Blaupunkt model RPD 552 about a year before the car went into storage.  At that time it was in working condition but now the radio doesn?t seem to power-up and I have not looked into the problem any further.  No modifications to the original dashboard were made during the replacement process. Any sales tax, inspection fees, title fees, license fees, registration fees, document fee, finance charges, shipping charges, or any other costs arising from the purchase of this Avanti are the sole responsibility of the buyer.  This car is being offered ?as is? and ?where Is? by the seller and any bids by interested buyers amount to acceptance of these terms, with no exceptions.  If the car is to be shipped, all selection of a shipper, arrangements, and payment to the shipper is the responsibility of the buyer.  The seller will try to accommodate buyer by making the car available for pickup at a reasonable time that has been agreed mutually between the buyer and the seller in advance. I will be happy to try and answer any questions you might have prior to bidding. Additionally, I welcome and encourage independent inspections and will make attempts to accommodate visits for that purpose. CONTACT: Note that you may hear from me after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder it is your responsibility to contact me within 24 hours. INSPECTION: This car is being offered ?as is? and ?where is? with no implied or expressed warranty.  If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen, the buyer accepts the vehicle ?as is? and ?where is? and understands I can cannot address concerns post sale.  For this reason, it is important that all concerns are addressed prior to purchase.  I have made every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness.  It is the sole responsibility of the potential buyer to verify the vehicle condition and completeness before placing any bids. PAYMENT: A non-refundable $500 deposit is required of the successful bidder within 48 hours of the close of the auction. Full payment is required within 7 days of the close of the auction unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing.  If the deposit and/or full payment are not provided within the stated time frame, the car will be relisted and transaction will be considered void.  For the balance of the payment I prefer a bank wire transfer of the funds.  I will also accept cash at the time of pickup, or a cashier's check, or personal check. If the buyer opts to pay with either a cashier?s check or personal check, possession for purposes of pickup or shipping will not occur until after the funds clear the banking system.  For peace of mind, please review the eBay Vehicle Protection Program for an understanding of the various protections afforded to buyers purchasing through eBay Motors. LEGAL OWNERSHIP AND THE FINANCIAL AND LIABILITY RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE VEHICLE TRANSFER FROM THE SELLER TO THE BUYER AT THE TIME THAT THE BALANCE DUE HAS CLEARED THE BANKING SYSTEM OR WHEN CASH IS TENDERED AT THE TIME OF PICKUP. SHIPPING: If the car is to be shipped, the choice of a carrier and the financial arrangements are the sole responsibility of the buyer.  It is recommended that any carrier selected provide the buyer with proof of bonding and insurance.  Buyers are welcome to trailer the vehicle with their own equipment. DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: The Avanti is currently titled in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The signed motor vehicle title and a bill of sale will be provided to the buyer.  The process and the expense of re-registering the vehicle and the payment of sales tax are the sole responsibility of the buyer. VIN VERIFICATION: The listing includes a photograph the primary VIN location of the Avanti superimposed on top of the current title to the car.  I have verified that the primary VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.*****   CLICK ON THE PICTURES BELOW TO VIEW VIDEOS   *****MVI 8065 - YouTubeVideo will open in a new window[isdntekvideo]MVI 8068 - YouTubeVideo will open in a new window[isdntekvideo]
