    80 Avanti II

    Seal kits for these rams are also available for short money.....and using a few basic tools aren't difficult to install!

    'Boosted' Avanti!

    Hmmm.....false is correct here, however, not for the reason you stated. (shaft seal IS the above described dual washer & spring setup) Anyone else know what makes this trivia question false?
  4. Today

    Avanti Pan!

    And you are CORRECT for reason stated!
  6. I'll say FALSE, since I remember a shaft seal installed in the cover also.

    Avanti Pan!

    I'll guess false as you would need to drop the exhaust crossover from the 82. IIRC.
  8. Studebaker Avanti 'R2' carburetors rely exclusively on a dual washer & spring setup, which the accelerator pump shaft passes through, to keep fuel from spraying out top of pump shaft hole when the engine is running under supercharger boost pressure.......True?

    Avanti Pan!

    There's less mechanic's labor involved 'dropping' the oil pan on a 1982 Avanti ll than there is removing an oil pan from a 1964 Studebaker Avanti.......True?
  10. mfg

    Avanti Price!

    Nope, #4 is not correct!.....Remember, at that time there were also quite a number of new, unsold 1963 Avantis suddenly referred to as new, unsold 1964 Avantis! Would the list price actually go UP for an unsold 1963 vehicle now being called a 1964 vehicle?

    Avanti Price!

    I do not have 1964 prices handy, so I will say #4) $4575, assuming that there was a small price increase from 1963.
  12. Yesterday
  13. The Halibrands look really nice on this Avanti!
  14. mfg

    Avanti Price!

    Sorry, answer #3 is not correct!
  15. mfg

    Avanti Happening!

    Gary's answer is close enough...........The oddity is saying (for registration purposes) that unsold '63 Avantis are now '64 Avantis after that date!
  16. mfg

    R1 Powered!

    And you are CORRECT!
  17. mfg

    R1 Powered!

    You aren't bad...it's my 'dry' sense of humor that's sometimes bad!
  18. mfg

    Avanti R-4795!

    Yep, that's the answer! (a 429)
  19. mfg

    Avanti Change!

    And this ad is where the question came from!,,,,#4,'Tires' is the answer....WELL DONE!
  20. I remember your Avanti... and loved the paint at the show. Your picture doesn't do it justice, even better in the sun! You should send it to me to place in Avanti Magazine.

    Avanti Change!

    That is such a cool Goodyear ad! Don't think I have seen that before. The Avanti in the pic is just perfect in my opinion - color, wheels, tires, and especially the stance!
  22. There is one for sale right now and it looks beautiful. Check out the for sale section. pb
  23. Age and health force sale of 63R-1458, R2 4spd with upgrades from a wrecked 83 Avanti. First place at both AOAI and SDC national meets last fall in Ohio. Pictures and description at https://tinyurl.com/y7euf8vn
  24. While advertising is usually full of hyperbole, Goodyear, in this ad, claimed the first thing Steve Blake changed was the tires. The ad also shows the "II" already dropped from the Avanti name...so it begs the "chicken and the egg" type of question.

    Avanti R-4795!

    Isn't this the Avanti that Joe Granatelli swapped the big Caddy V8 into? Not sure on engine size, whether it was a 429 or 472 cubic inch.

    R1 Powered!

    I put the question marks there because I couldn't understand the question. But I now realize that the reason I couldn't understand the question is because I wasn't reading it closely enough. My bad.

    R1 Powered!

    The Hawk but only by a couple of hundred dollars (the RI did cost more in the Wagonaire than in the Hawk).
  28. i don't think that it was the first thing, but early on he dropped the II from Avanti. EDIT: answer 3
