Seller's notes: There are a few minor nicks/flaws in the paint as it was a daily driver. It has a small rock chip in the windshield for which I have a replacement. The hood insulation needs to be glued back into place on one side.

INCREDIBLY RARE AVANTI CONVERTIBLE.   LESS THAN A HUNDRED MADE.   I COMPLETELY REBUILT THIS RIDE.   REPLACED THE ANEMIC 305 "HIPO" STOCK MOTOR WITH A GM CRATE 383 STROKER MOTOR WITH ALUMINUM HEADS AND A ROLLER CAM AND ROCKERS.   I PUT IN A MSD DISTRIBUTER. COIL AND MSD 6AL BOX WITH ADJUSTABLE REV LIMITER.   REPLACED THE WEAK 200 R4 TRANNY WITH A TCI 4L60 4 SPEED AUTO WITH OVERDRIVE AND A PROGRAMMABLE CONTROL BOX. CURRENTLY SET AT STREET PERFORMANCE LEVEL.   REAR END WAS REPLACED WITH A FORD 9 INCH WITH A STRONG CENTER SECTION AND 4:56 GEARS TO ACCOMODATE THE 20 INCH RIMS IN THE REAR.   THE TIRES AND CUSTOM RIMS HAVE ABOUT 500 MILES ON THEM.   THE TRANNY HAS ABOUT THE SAME MILES AND THE MOTOR HAS ABOUT 10. 00 AT MOST.   THE ODOMETER WAS RESET AWHILE BACK.  THE MOTOR SOUNDS GREAT AND HAS PROBABLY A LITTLE OVER 400 HP.   THE INTERIOR WAS COMPLETELY RE-DONE WITH THE FINEST BLACK LEATHER AND RED PIPING.   THE AVANTI LOGO WAS CUSTOM EMBROIDERED INTO THE HEADRESTS.   IT HAS A NEW CUSTOM SOUND SYSTEM WITH A LARGE AMP.   REAR SPEAKERS WERE CUSTOM MOLDED INTO THE REAR PANELS.   THE CAR WAS LOWERED WITH NEW PERFORMANCE COILS.   CUSTOM 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES WERE ADDED  AND THE REAR WHEELS WERE MADE 20 INCH TO PROPERLY FILL UP THE FACTORY WHEEL WELL OPENINGS THAT ALWAYS WERE TOO LARGE FOR THE STOCK SIZE WHEELS AND TIRES.   THERE WERE EVEN LEATHER INSERTS UNDER THE HOOD INSULATION AND LEATHER IN THE TRUNK.   THE WOODEN DASH INSERT WAS RE-MADE ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO.   IT HAS A CUSTOM EXHAUST WITH FLOWMASTERS THAT SOUND GREAT.   THIS CAR TURNS HEADS WHEREVER IT GOES.   I ALSO HAVE A BOOT FOR WHEN THE TOP IS DOWN THAT IS NOT SHOWN IN THE PICTURES.   THE CAR WAS RE-PAINTED WITH TOP SHELF STUFF AND LOOKS GREAT.   SIMILIARLY THE TOP WAS REPLACED AND LOOKS GREAT.   IT HAS A NEW BATTERY.    THIS IS VIRTUALLY A NEW CAR ONLY BUILT WITH WAY BETTER COMPONENTS THAN FACTORY.   I WILL TRY TO POST A YOU-TUBE VIDEO LINK OF A WALK AROUND SO YOU CAN HEAR IT RUN.   IT IS SWEET.   PLEASE COME AND TEST DRIVE IT OR SEND YOUR MECHANIC.   THE LEFT FRONT TIRE TOUCHES THE FRAME WHEN THE WHEEL IS TURNED HARD ONE DIRECTION SO YOU CAN EITHER LEAVE IT. PUT IN A SPACER. OR GO ONE SIZE SMALLER TIRES IN THE FRONT.   I FIRST NOTICED THIS JUST RECENTLY AFTER THE THE NEW WHEELS WERE MADE AND THE TIRES MOUNTED.   THERE IS OVER $70. 00. 00 INVESTED IN THIS RIDE.   I AM CLOSING MY SHOP AND SELLING OFF MY STREET CARS.   IT IS GOING TO HURT TO SEE THIS ONE GO.   THE TRANNY IS A TCI.

A COUPLE OTHER THINGS;  THE CAR HAS ALUM RADIATOR WITH SUPPLEMENTAL ELEC FAN. WILWOOD BRAKES WITH UPGRADED ROTORS. THEY ARE TORQUE THRUST II AMERICAN RACING RIMS WITH NEW GFORCE RADIAL TIRES. VERY STICKY. ADJUSTABLE GAS SHOCKS WITH INDIVIDUAL AIR BAGS IN THE REAR TO ADJUST THE RIDE HEIGHT. IT IS CARBURATED WITH AN ALUM INTAKE AND BARRY GRANT/DEMON CARB WITH FUEL PRESSURE GUAGE UNDER HOOD. K AND N AIR FILTER. TILT COLUMN AND I BELIEVE I HAVE ALL THE FACTORY MANUALS . A CHASSIS MANUAL AND MAYBE EVEN THE ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER SHOWING PURCHASE PRICE AROUND 56-58

I would offer $10,000 upon visual and drive inspection. I want to get for my wife's birthday so I need to hear back very soon, if you can.
You can call me at 903-941-0938. Do you have a sound recording of the car running?
