In addition, the trade in on this car was a 1982 Avanti, (also John Seaton's personal vehicle that he had sold them in 1984). I also have the documentation for that transaction. Also, it's important to note that after John Seaton sold it to the current owners, it has remained in the same family until the present time.
'87 Avanti Coupe
56,000 Actual Miles.., Formerly Owned by Avanti CEO.., Special Paint..!
This car has a very interesting history. Here are some of the unique features and facts:
To begin with it was personally owned by the President and CEO, (John Seaton), of the Avanti Corporation of the late 80's. He sold it directly to the owners in April of 1990, and I have taken photos of that Bill of Sale and numerous other communication documents between him and the owners, (husband and wife), and have included them in the photo section accompanying this description. It currently has only 56,664 ACTUAL miles on the car..!
If you look closely at the steering wheel in the pictures, you will see it has been personally signed by M.E. Kelly who was the owner of the Avanti Corporation for a small time from between 1987 and 1988. (Who else has that on their car?)
A few years ago, the owners spent about $10,000 on a very professional complete color change to the White Pearl color it is now. When you look closely at the car, there is simply no evidence it was ever any other color. (It was originally a color similar to the interior color, but the color had lost some of its original luster, so the owners wanted to paint the car, loved White Pearl, and consequently had a complete color change done.) So.., you will never see another Avanti quite like this one.
The car also has all of the options available including the Moon Roof, the Wire Wheels and full power that came standard on the Avanti from that era. The tires are in excellent condition and were recently rotated.
This is an extremely nice car with interior, engine compartment and trunk all fully detailed and in excellent condition. It has been maintained very well and serviced regularly.
If you are an Avanti lover of this era, this would be an outstanding car for you to own..! All of the documentation goes with the car and if you were so inclined, you could assemble the various items into an organized display package and combined with the car itself, you could make this a great candidate for car shows. Or.., you could simply drive the car on nice days and just enjoy it and know you have a great investment parked in your garage for years to come.
