    Avanti View!

    Yes, it' s a bit confusing, however, the answer to this trivia question is TRUE! (Ask me how I know!)

    Avanti View!

    I will say false, even though it is a confusing subject. Two 1968 factory photos show the mirror up high and a 1970 factory photo shows the mirror down low.

    Avanti View!

    As late as 1972, Avanti ll's were being sold with the rear view mirror installed near the bottom of the windshield.......True?
  6. So what's so special about 1976 Avanti ll RQB2257?
  7. I do not like that one off with large rectangle lights. Now that I see the difference I think I prefer the rectangular production headlights as in Bob Caser's picture.
  8. This is a photo of my 1964 Avanti R 5487 at the La Palma Studebaker show in 1985 sporting the then new Blake head light buckets.
  9. Strangest "candy apple red" I've ever seen.
  10. is the column still available Thanks Norm
  11. Was that one the custom Avanti JJ Caffaro had made for his wife?
  12. Normal rectangle lights are the sealed beam units that were used on many production cars of the time. The one Avanti with large rectangular lights had lights that were about twice a wide.
  13. I guess I'm simply not versed in Avanti minutia, What's the difference between large and normal rectangular lights?
  14. The 1988 Avanti on eBay is NOT an LSC model. They show an LSC brochure, but the car is not an LSC.
  15. Like other changes made during the 1983 model year, like dropping the "II", the 1983 20th Anniversary Coupes had rectangular lights. There was also one 1989 with large rectangular lights. Yes, the rectangular lights carried through the 1991 model year. All 1984 - 1991 model year Avantis, with the one example cited, had normal rectangular headlights.
  16. When Steve Blake purchased the company there were some styling changes that included the body color impact absorbing bumpers and the rectangular headlights. They began in the '84 body year I believe. The rectangular headlights stayed through the end of production for the 1991 model year.
  17. Just found it. It's an 88 and it's listed on Ebay
  18. Just curious. All 63's and a few early 64's had round headlights and covers. After that they we were replaced with rectangular housings, although still with round headlight lenses. Today i saw a picture of an 86 or 87 LSC (the longer wheelbase luxury Avanti) with rectangular headlight lenses set in rectangular housings. In all the years I've observed Avanti's I've never noticed this before. Is this a one off, or did they change the lights at some point?
  19. As said before, the next easiest thing to check is the u-joints on the driveshaft. Issues on deceleration are one sign of that.
  20. I took the car to an Autobody shop who fixed the fiberglass cracks on both sides of the hood where the hinges were. and repainted. Came out really nice. Not cheap, but came out nice. Cost about 1500. Thank you to everyone. A83

    Avant shudder.

    I found some loose lug nuts and tightened them up. Took for a test drive and the railroad tie feeling diminished but not gone. When I came back from the test drive, one lug on rear driver side wheel was loose and retightened. Now it seems to vibrate at around 20 miles an hour when I accelerate but shudders noticeably when the car starts to decelerate at around 20 miles an hour. Did not highway test it yet. Any more thoughts? Appreciate any help. A83
  22. Thank you Jim, this is really a help. I am going to give these a try. I appreciate the offer, I do have the original maintenance manual but appreciate your offer.
