1988 AVANTI II CONVERTIBLE, WONDERFUL CAR, 29,800 MILES, LOVELY AND RARE CAR

The Avanti brand can trace their heritage back to Studebaker. The Avanti was one of the last model produced by Studebaker before the brand went out of business in 1966. When the Avanti was introduced it was touted as "one of the more significant milestones of the postwar industry." The car was a fresh design, offering good performance and unique styling that has been unmatched to this day. While Studebaker shut down business operations in 1966, the manufacturing plant and all tooling was sold to the Avanti Motor Co. Production of the cars continued, in various forms from 2 and 4 door models in convertible coupes and Sedans, for more than 40 years until 2006. These are rare, handmade cars that will always have a unique niche in the Automotive world. The car on offer here is this excellent 1988 Avanti II convertible. The car is a one-family owned since the early 1990’s. It is original and unmolested and up to date on all services. The car only has 29,800 miles. The original Cadillac Autumn Metallic paint is good with good shine and luster; the beige leather interior, likewise, is in good original condition with a nice patina (there is a small rip in the driver's seat). The beige soft top completes the package. Power comes from the venerable 305ci Chevrolet V8 paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. The interior is trimmed in tan and features woodgrain dash and console panels, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, air conditioning, and a SONY cassette stereo. The car wears its original gorgeous wire wheels and the tires are good. It has had a recent service, including Valve guide seals, fluid service and a new battery. It runs and drives well, and all systems work as they should. The power windows were just serviced and work as designed, and the convertible top is in good condition and the electric top mechanism works well. Buy with confidence as this very original 1988 Avanti II runs and drives well and needs nothing except an enthusiastic new owner/collector.
