1990 Avanti 4-Door Sedan Only 96808 Actual Miles! Automatic Transmission 302 V8 Engine! Only 89 Ever Produced! A wonderful opportunity!

Here is a very rare chance to get one of the rarest sedans ever produced! Up for auction is a 1990 Avanti 4-Door Sedan! Here's a bit on the Avanti Sedan pulled off Google: While Studebaker president Sherwood Egbert had envisioned a four-door sedan based on the Avanti way back in 1963 this 1990 Avanti four-door sedan currently on offer is not the result of Egbert's dream. Instead it's the product of John J. Cafaro's brief tenure as the head of Avanti in the late 1980s. The Avanti four-door based on a Chevrolet Caprice chassis is the only vehicle Avanti Automotive Corp. built in 1990. This version of the car was unveiled at the Greater New York International Automobile Show in March 1989. How many cars can you truly say are rare? This is one of the rarest cars on the planet to own! The car runs and drives nicely. I wouldn't call it a show winner at this point as it has a few quirks pointed out in the photos below. It would need some light cosmetic and mechanical work to be a legitimate show winner. However with its pure rarity and unique looks it still commands all the attention at any car show it goes to! The car's previous owner lived here in Texas Houston to be exact. The car belonged in a collector's private collection until the car was damaged in Hurricane Ike in 2008 (eight years ago) when the collector's garage flooded from the rain (fresh water not salt water!). We acquired it from the insurance company. The damage was relatively light but we did give it a mini-restoration and went through the entire car and made sure there were no lasting effects from the water exposure. The car has been in my personal collection ever since. The car was always kept in a rust free environment as the body has no rust at all on it! Due to the insurance history the car does come with a rebult-salvage Texas title which is the same as a normal clean Texas title except for the notation on the front of the title "rebuilt salvage" "flood damage". If you haven't noticed by now on classic cars like this it's not so much the title history as it is the condition of the car itself. There are plenty of rusted out cars sitting on blocks in fields that have perfectly clean titles but what are those going to get you besides a headache? Come see this car and you'll be impressed!

This may be your last chance to get a car like this. With only 80-90 ever produced you may never see another one on the market! Don't miss your opportunity to own this beautiful car! This car is truly a beautiful Avanti. You will be the envy of other owners at car shows! You will not be disappointed! Don't settle for second best! Get the car you have always dreamed of owning! Don't let this wonderful opportunity pass you by! If you have any questions don't hesitate to give us a call at 210-901-8864

What a rare car! These four door models are few and far between. Some say 80 some say 90 made but in either number it's still incredibly rare! The passenger corner of the front bumper is chipped as you can see. What a unique car! The entire body is made out of fiberglass. The original paint is 25 years old now and does show some light cracks in some places under close inspection. Here on the driver side as you can see. On the bumper. Just look at this beauty! What a find! This car will capture the curiosity of anyone who is nearby! This car has no fenders. It's all one big piece of fiber glass! The body is still very straight! The 25 year old clear coat is failing in a few small places. You can see it here. Even from the rear the car still looks incredible with these unique looks you won't find anywhere else! This car had another logo back here at some point. You can see the holes that were drilled to attach them. This is the real deal! An Avanti! The body is still incredibly straight! The car has held up real nicely for being all original! Just look at these unique lines! Clear coat beginning to fail behind the rear wheel as shown here. The paint still looks great up here! It's 25 years old and isn't perfect but all in all its still nice! A small spot up here as you can see. The hood looks great! Another spot on the passenger side behind the rear door. The rubber trim on all four windows needs to be replaced. It's 25 years old and has dried and broken off in most cases. Not a hard fix. See what i mean? You can see half the rubber then the other half you can look straight into there. Wheels and tires still look great. Tires have plenty of tread but are starting to show some time related age wear. Above one wheel is some light spider webbing of the fiberglass. Clear coat cracking on and next to the mirror. If it wasn't for the clear coat and a few fiberglass cracks the exterior would be near perfect. Trunk still looks great! The carpeting is a little discolored but all in all it's still nice! Driver's door and trim still look great! Here's your first glimpse into this original 1990 Avanti 4-Door! All original in here. Driver's seat is showing some wear expected for an original car of this age and mileage. Not too bad for 25 years old. This car hasn't been restored in any way! Power seat controls still work great! Passenger side door also looks great! You'll be pleased with all the luxury this car has to offer! They really made something special with this car! Passenger's seat is in even better condition. The leather looks great! Just look at how nice it is! Original Avanti interior! This power seat is also working great! Rear doors still look great! No scuff or kick marks to be found! Rear seat passengers have plenty of room and even have tray tables! What a luxury sedan! The tray tables retract easily! This door is also looking great! You'll be pleased with this car's all original condition! The rear seats were very seldomly sat in! They really have held up well! This car has got it all! Very unique! Rear seat passengers will really enjoy all the comfort! Only 80 of these cars exist. You won't find a rarer car out there! The driver will enjoy all the looks they get while driving! This car is a sight to behold! So will the passenger! A very comfortable ride being surrounded with leather and woodgrain! The interior still looks good. It's held up nicely for being 25 years old! The a/c and radio still work nicely! Transmission shifts great! The woodgrain still looks good. The window motors are showing their age leading to us refraining from operating them. We'd hate to send the window down only to see it not come back up when commanded. All the motors could use a good lubricating/service. Vanity mirrors. I couldn't get the lights on the mirrors to work though. The car did have an auto dimming mirror but it's permanently dimmed now due to its age. The car has had a radar detector installed in a very discreet place here. The headliner still looks great but has come down slightly on the passenger's side a the seam as you can see. Back here still looking nice! We found some promotional material for this car. It's very hard to come by. This car was really rare! Copy of a window sticker! This car had a sticker price of $48000 in 1990. This isn't from this car but for illustration purposes. All the gauges are still working! Original mileage! The engine still shows nicely and runs very well! What's nice about this rare car is that the parts that made it are anything but rare. This car is on a Chevrolet Caprice chassis! This car can be serviced at Pep Boys or Goodyear! You don't need a special mechanic! This is the real deal! The 302 v8! Plenty of power for this Avanti! Engine is still in great shape! It fires right up! It appears the heater has been bypassed. This is a car you would be proud to call your own!
