  1. I've seen this car in person and know the owner. The car lives in Palm Springs. VtMike, it does not have both - only A/C. There was a story behind the Supercharged script on the fenders, but it doesn't come to mind. But the car is just as good as it looks in this video. Other than filling in the holes in the trunk that Sailingaventure mentioned, there were two other things I noticed - The armrest has carpet whereas mine has a chrome trim piece. Also, the spring broke on the vanity mirror in the glove box - on mine, when you pull out the drawer, the mirror pops up automatically.
  2. Thanks - this is most helpful. My Carter rotary fuel pump is on order
  3. When I bought my 1963 R1 it had an electric fuel pump underneath the battery on the inner driver's fender. i use these clear plastic universal fuel filters so I can see the filter's condition and gas flow. What I've noticed is that the filter between the pump and the carburetor trickles gas through it - that is, it doesn't full up with gas as I think it should. And I notice on acceleration the engine hesitates, as if it doesn't have enough gas. This is after I've taken out the gas tank (for hot tanking and sealing), replaced the entire metal gas line from the tank to the engine, and installe
  4. Hi there - I have a question for my 63 Avanti. The cable that releases the trunk deck has a lot of friction, and I'm concerned that one time in the near future the cable will break. Can someone out there recommend ways to lubricate the cable? I prefer not removing the cable housing. Thanks a lot.
  5. Hi there. I have a 1963 R1 (Serial R4581) and noticed that when I have the headlights on, the parking lights also remain on. Federal law required all car manufacturers to do this in 1969 and beyond, and I also have 2 other Mopar vehicles older than 1969 where the parking lights go off when the headlights are on. I'm wondering if my car's wiring was modified over the years or that's how they all were wired. Thanks.
  6. Following - would be nice to have an extra surge tank. If you have the part, please PM me with the price for the tank and shipping. I can do PayPal. Thanks
  7. Thank you all for your responses. This forum has helped me so much!
  8. I have a question. My 1963 (Serial Number R4581) is an R1 with automatic and A/C. Last weekend, I drove from L.A. to Palm Springs and back - both with the A/C on (which was working correctly, cycling on and off). Even so, the interior was just comfortable. I could not believe how much heat was coming from the automatic shift lever. Is this normal operation? Has anyone figured out how to make it so the heat transfer from the transmission does not transfer to the passenger compartment? Thanks.
