  • My Avanti
  1. Just wondering if Studebaker set any recommended shift points on the tachometer for the R2 4 speed cars. Then, I was wondering how much that differed with the R3 car.
  2. Here's a plug for the Studebaker Avanti Authenticity Manual, the addendum Number One to it, and the Service Letters. Very helpful to figure out exactly what you've got.
  3. For what it's worth, I'm looking at my dog eared copy of the parts catalog and it lists "part number" for a R1 & R2 short block as 1557834, R3 1563288, R4 1563289. Maybe these are sub assembly part numbers in the Studebaker system.
  4. Thanks for the input. This one does have the spin on oil filter. But again in 64studeavanti's picture, this one hast the casting number with the number 3 below it in addition to two slotted screw heads. Is there significance to these?
  5. I have a 1963 Avanti with a non-original Studebaker V-8 engine. There is no serial number stamped on the boss and I was told the engine was purchased as a short block. Embossed on the engine are the number 1554641 with the number 4 above it. Is this the Studebaker number for the V-8 block? What significance is the "4"?
