    Avanti Talk!

    Nate Altman and the President of the local bank...I can't remember the bank President's name but I think it was the First Source Bank. I'm outta town right now and can't look it up for sure. if I'm wrong on that then it may have between Nate and Bob Morrison of Molded Fiberglass.
  7. Hi Ron, I am interested in the rotors if you still have them. Thanks! Chris
  8. Oscar, send me a PM and an offer if you haven't found what you are looking for either needing restoration or restored.

    Avanti Date!

    In 1965, Studebaker sent a letter to its dealers notifying them of the new Avanti II. I am thinking that may have happened on July 22, 1965 (also my father's 63rd birthday). The first price list for the Avanti II was dated August 1, 1965. On August 2, 1965, Avanti issued three press releases.

    Avanti Date!

    Why is July 22, 1965 an important date in the history of the Avanti automobile?

    During a conversation between these two 'Avanti associated' personalities, one said to the other....." If you got the guts to try it, we'll do it".......Who were these two gents?

    Reworked VS-57!

    As an aside, the last versions of the ball-drive superchargers (sn-93 and up), used a larger volume oil pump. The plunger is a larger diameter, (as well as the pump body). And is a good upgrade for the SN-60 blowers. Also, the bronze ball driver is much better than the aluminum ones.

  15. Not only would a six not have fit the performance image of the Avanti, the length of the engine would probably been an issue. They might have had to mount the radiator on the front bumper! Mike

    And 320 lbs./ft. is CORRECT!

    Reworked VS-57!

    Yes, the main problem was/is the internal oiling system.... A problem that really never was completely solved!.......per Andy Granatelli!

    Reworked VS-57!

    Well I thought it was the drive element set too. So, I'll hazard a guess and say the oiling system. I base this on the fact that they brought out the direct oiling version, dipstick oil coolers, etc to try to improve the oiling system.

    Reworked VS-57!

    Although it's true the 'German Drive Element Set', with closer tolerances than the American set, was introduced about the time the Granatelli's took over, I disagree that Andy felt uneven tolerances were THE MAJOR FLAW in the VS-57.....................Anyone else have an opinion here?
  22. Besides the reasons that I and others have previously stated, none of these engines fit the image of the Avanti - you have to think in early 1960s terms. I am not saying anything negative about your examples, I have owned two of the three.
