  1. When I pulled the radiator out of my 1991 Conv I took it to the radiator shop and had them recore it. Never even asked what they thought it was? He said no problem and I picked it up the next day all done. He did use a bit bigger tubes inside the core for more flow he said.
  2. I think #2 would day something like that in his writing style.
  3. On my 1991 conv I do not think there would be any way to reach up from the bottom to open the hood. Is the lever under the dash stuck and not moveable or has the cable that un locks the latches pulled out? On the door can you get the window down? You may be able to push a rod down along side the glass to press the lock/un lock lever?
  4. The workmanship looks fantastic, and what I can see of your garage it looks like you have a booth in there too. Can't wait to see the next batch of photos. Great Job.
  5. I do like the car, as I said it is a nice cruiser and is Quiet & Smooth driving, my wife likes that fact. I'm pretty sure it would not spin the tires on gravel and for sure you need to plan any accleration into traffic. It is a dog.,but looks good. I've kicked around selling it and buying something else already repowered and made quicker. Will attempt this week to investigate with the local hot rod shops to the cost and effort needed to swap in more power. As it is it runs as well as it can and has not given me a lick of problems power train wise. Have upgraded the radiator and now it run
  6. Have a 48,000 mile 1991 Avanti Conv that is in really nice looking shape. Has a few minor issues like the a/c doesn't work, but overall is really nice. It has the 305 slug of a motor, that runs perfectly just not really powerful and lacks the get up and go. I've toyed with the idea of pulling that 305 and dropping in a 350/or 383 chevy with some real power, changing the rear axle ratio and making it a fun hot rod. Need some opinions on if this will kill any resale value or ?? make it more desireable. As it is it gets a lot of thumbs up and is fun to drive, as it is quiet and comfortable and
  7. Should be drain not drane??? I typed too fast and didn't re-read what I wrote.

    Avanti Paint!

    I thought they used enamel paints? So I say false
  9. I used this company to rebuild my rear window regualtors and motors for my 91 convertible. http://windowmotorworld.net/
  10. With the chevy 305 capable of mid 20's per gallon useage and a tank size of about 20 gallons I guess 425 miles.
  11. "Your car is number 12 of the 17 built." I was told 17 total for 1991, but only 7 convertibles and the others were 4 doors. He said mine/his was the last one built as a conv off the line. I have not been able to confirm any of that information. Makes for a good story to say the last of these styles was this as the last conv. But until I can find the real info and know it is the truth, I don't repeat it. I do say it was in the last small run of converibles for 1991.
  12. I own that one listed above out of California. The fellow I bought it from was 84 and the second owner and he had it about 24 years. I bought it and use it as much as possible here in Arizona. I was under the impression that it was not fiberglass but kevlar impregnated fiberglass. It is heavy and drives very well. Only changed the tires and wheels and some minor repairs for the 2.5 years I've had it. Always get thumbs up from other drivers when we have it out.
