  1. It is my understanding that the floor pan was changed in order to accomplish this. I have owned both types, but do not have the details of the changes. It could probably be accomplished, but certainly not easily.
  2. I note that your 1987 Avanti coupe was delivered new in New Jersey in 1988. I took delivery of my new 1987 Avanti coupe in New Jersey also (different dealer).
  3. Were the heads and block trued the last time it was apart? If not do it this time. Be sure to follow the correct sequence on torquing the heads when you install new gaskets.
  4. There were 158 1989 Avantis built. What makes you think that only 17 of those were convertibles? I do believe that there were 17 1991 convertibles. Perhaps that is what you were thinking of.
  5. Service Letter J-1063-3a says for one step cold to use J-10Y (formally J-9Y), so I will choose your answer 3.
  6. I do not remember if a repair kit was available, but it was so easy to change the pump that is what I did. I will answer the question as True, since that seems to be in the back of my memory.
  7. I only have a small picture/computer screen, but it appears to me that the radiator hose can be moved further onto the radiator nipple. This will alleviate or eliminate the problem. I think that the tank should be fastened to the bracket.
  8. I purchased a 1987 new from a dealer and did not receive that manual. Mine was the fourth 1987 sold to the public(--006). Perhaps they did not have the manual yet.
  9. Without digging mine out, I will go with 4) August, because that is when the Avanti Workshop Manual was issued.
  10. RQA in '69 and early '70 were 327s. RQB in '70 were 350s. Avanti purchased small lots of engines from GM and just used them, not necessarily in order.
  11. My guess is 1) not once.
