Dave Kinney 1963 R1 Avanti

Over the years, Dave Kinney has owned approximately 100 Avantis – he’s a fan! Read about his experience with the #2 production Avanti. Finding it – losing it, finding it again and then undertaking a full restoration back to it’s former glory. It was first shown in the public eye at the 2014 Amelia Island Concours, where it won Best of Show. Way to go, Dave……

The following gold 63 Avanti is receiving a cosmetic restoration by Bez Auto Alchemy. Complete body strip with new body paint, restored dash, refurbished gauges, heater console plates and repainted steering unit.

New battery hold down brackets, rebuilt starter, fabricated broken teeth on torque converter, rebuilt carburetor, replaced interior door panels and carpet with re-chrome on select parts.


Dave tells us this Avanti will be his driver.
