  3. Regnalbob, Thanks for posting the bulletins about the mirror. Is there a source for copies of all of these Avanti related service letters?
  4. WTB. Looking for a correct Air Cleaner Cover ( part # 1563231 or maybe # 156234 ) for a 1963 R-2. This cover is 6 1/4 in. in diameter and is polished metal or "flashed chrome". It is held on by a stud and wing nut from the air cleaner ( part # 1557240 or maybe # 1559479 ). I have one from another Studebaker car that was not polished and did not have the correct indentations, so it is not correct for a R-2. Thanks!
  5. Can someone post copies of bulletins # F-1964-7 and # F-1963-18. Thanks! BTW, Sorry about your cold temperatures, but not as bad as my wifes feet!

    On the lower control arms pivot shaft ( part # 532188 ) of the front suspension both the left and right shafts have a "half moon" shaped tab with a hole in it. What are these tabs used for? I use them to hook up tie downs when trailering my Avanti ( no, this does not hurt the alignment ). Your thoughts? Thank you!
  7. I am pondering the purchase of the #7011 Replica Wheels for my 1963 Avanti. They are from Real Rodder Wheels as advertised in the AOAI magazine. These were a dealer option for Avanti. For those of you that have purchased these wheels; Your opinion of the vender? Opinion of the quality of the wheels? Opinion of the price? Opinion of the appearance on a original and stock 1963? Any other comments? Thank you! John
