  1. I've seen this a few years ago and now it's for sale https://www.autotrader.ca/a/avanti%20ii/r/winnipeg/manitoba/19_11731306_/?showcpo=ShowCpo&ncse=no&orup=36_95_95&pc=N5V%200A2&sprx=-1

  3. That appears to have a fuel return/vapor release ("this side up") outlet. No Avanti I ever heard of used one. You have to have a higher fuel pressure pump to offset the bleed off. If you have a fuel tank return line on your chassis, this could be a nice asset.
  4. /// I bypassed the ballast resistor since the Mallory Coil (I installed a Unilite distributor) has an internal resistor. /// You should also install the Mallory Surge Protector..
  5. Yes, thank all. I'm still looking at this...
  6. Yes, I've verified the contact, thanks.
  7. Hello all, I am in negotiations to sell one of my cars and the respondent is a fellow named Jean Claude Legros. We have had extensive email back and forth and he says he recently purchased an Avanti on the west coast, using a Schumacher Logistics to transport the vehicle. The last conversation was one that tripped some flags, as he indicated this transport company will be the payer and pickup entity. The company is real, as is the person I was told to contact just gave me their details. I'm just doing some diligence. Does anyone here know this individual? thanks
  8. I believe the rear one was the return to spray the cooled oil on the innards as it dropped to the pan...
  9. Used to be owned by Cafaro

  11. Outside paint is a plus, but if you're going the POR15 route, consider opening up the door sills with a hole saw every foot or so and do the inside of the troughs too. That would be much more beneficial to the longevity.
  12. Have you tried this reference? https://studebaker-info.org/Avanti/Tech/Electrical/AEC/aec.html I carried this page for years before realizing who authored them. The 81 can't be too different
  13. Check with Dave Kinney https://endurancebuiltproducts.com
  14. You can try a heat gun to soften it, a putty knife to scrape it, but there's a risk of gouging the glass
  15. You can access the torque box bolts from the top by removing the sill plate and rubber mat and drilling a few 1.5-2.0" holes in the fiberglass. Use Kroil or PB Blaster on them from the top. Worth a try and beats hell out of drilling them out from underneath. Returning the sill plates and rubber conceals everything you've done.
