1976 Avanti II equipped with all the original drivetrain and equipment as originally ordered, except the stereo head unit. This is a "PROJECT". The running/driving aspect of the car does not mean it's able to be driven down the road for miles but onto a trailer and around the block or yard. The brakes barely function even with very hard pedal pressure, likely due to collapsed rubber lines and a questionable master cylinder. The original Chevy 400 starts and runs well and keeps cool when idling for a long period.
This car has recently come from long-term at-home storage, but for years it also was subject to the northern climates and roads. With that said, this is a fiberglass car on a heavy steel frame with the frame being in excellent condition. The common areas prone to rust on the Avanti's from all years are the "hog troughs" and torque boxes which can be replaced without removing the body from the frame. The only other rust area is the rear round tube cross member at the back of the frame. For anyone new to the Avanti's, these are the most common areas to need repair. In my opinion, such replacement of the above parts can be done when ready while the mechanicals are tended to and the vehicle can be driven after necessary repairs and restored or kept as a "survivor" as some people may wish.
The option list on this car when new was pretty awesome, which included the driving lights and the Borrani spoke wheels!!. There are receipts from the previous owner showing the wheels to have been repaired in the early 90's by Dayton Wire Wheel with new steel rims.
The round tube from the front bumper is present, but bent and is in the trunk as it was removed after someone used it as a tow point and it would need to be replaced if someone felt like reinstalling it. The fiberglass body is in good shape, minus the obvious paint defects.
