From Ralph – The Avanti had been stored in my garage for about 30 years and I knew it was time to find it a new home. I put the car on craiglist and on a Studebaker web site and received some calls but no serious interest. I came across the Barn Finds web site and would check it out every morning. One day there was another Avanti similar to mine featured as a BF Exclusive. The next day I saw that the car had already been sold!
So, I checked out the”Sell Your Car” section of your site and it sounded like a good deal. I put the car info and pictures together and sent them in. The day the ad went up I got about 10 responses in a couple of hours! The car was too far for some and not exactly what others were looking for.
In the end, I had one person very interested in the Avanti. We e-mailed questions and answers back and forth and agreed on a deal. The pictures I enclosed are from the day of the pick up. I’m in New Jersey and the gentleman who purchased the car is in California so it was shipped across the country. My experience with Barn Finds was great and your write up for the ad was very nice. Thanks for all your help!
Thanks for listing the Avanti with us Ralph! We are glad the car found a good home and that the experience was a good one. If any of you have an old car parked in the garage that’s just collecting duct, please consider letting us help you find a buyer. When priced right, most Exclusives find a buyer within a couple of days. The process is easy and the risk is low. Take a look at the Submission page for more information about how it all works.
