    Paxton 'GSS'!

    Since it was applied to a Dodge Demon sold by Chicago's Grand Spaulding Dodge (the famous MoPar high performance dealership), GSS meant either 'Grand Spaulding Special' or 'Grand Spaulding Supercharged'. Here is an article on the car (sorry for the 'scan' written over it):

    Avanti R5361!

    And if someone really wants this acrylic lacquer, I can probably be talked out of it........

    Avanti Glove!

    False.......there were changes to the outer upholstery panel on the glovebox door, to the lock/housing assembly, to the key, and to the glove compartment light switch. Maybe more, but a few for examples.

    R4309 Change!

    The carpet on the seat back (ie, on the trunk side of the seat back) was eliminated.

    Avanti R4330!

    Three speed manual transmission?

    Avanti 56!

    Rare? Could it be the Firestone 500 tire option number?

  8. 49%.......................

    Wood grained instrument panel?

    Avanti R5183!

    Change in the manifold pressure gauge?
  12. Well, since you say this person was connected to the early development of the Avanti, I'll go with Bob Andrews.

    Golden Award!

    According to this ad, it was the '55 Speedster:

    I'm thinking it's a license plate frame..................
  15. Willard......................
  16. Windshield wiper linkage had a star-toothed washer added under the crank arm retaining nut, to stop it from loosening. (By the way, this is a repeat question.)
  17. #1, 105 square inches, comes closest to my calculations.
  18. I believe it was GM officials......................#1.
  19. Looking at the choices, I'm thinking the only one that would have 'built a plant' would be Robert Morrison........so I'll say the second #2.
  20. That's what I was thinking Gary, thanks for verifying.
  21. Ed, the parts book calls it a 'WEATHERSTRIP, front door vent division channel". It's riveted to the chrome door vent frame, and it's what the rear edge of the vent glass seals against when it's closed.
  22. These two new (NOS) vent window division channels were in a Studebaker parts cache that I obtained (pics below). They are made just like the division channels on my '64 Daytona, but they are curved. The overall length is 16". The only Studebaker that I could find that had curved division channels was the Avanti p/n 1350577 (at least, in the parts manual they look to be curved). What do you think, are these p/n 1350577 for an Avanti? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Avanti R5516!

    Is that the wrecked Avanti that Paul Johnson purchased from overseas (somewhere in the UK?), along with a crated R3 engine and other NOS parts?
