Anyone actually own an Avanti?

Search didn't produce much. I'm particularly interested in the Avanti with the Freightliner chassis. Are they all still on the dealers lot? Anyone own one? Thanks!

i have not seen an Avanti on a FCCC MC-L Chassis however it has a Cummins 6.7L ISB Engine according to Press Materials at the last RVIA Show.

I assume I'm the only owner of a Damon Avanti on this forum? I purchased the 2806 last week and am getting familiar with it (that means I'm fixing things). Have to say that the fit and finish is surprisingly good. I hate to pioneer, but here I am.

Are you looking at the Workhorse Avanti or the Freightliner Avanti?

The Cummins would be on the Freightliner MC-L Chassis.

I might have some stuff for you to read here:

I saw the heading and though that you were talking about a REAL Avanti.

I always loved those cars.

1963 Studebaker Avanti

Me too. A friend of mine (only child, wealthy family) had one when we were in high school.
