  1. 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
  2. Check with Dave Kinney https://endurancebuiltproducts.com
  3. You can try a heat gun to soften it, a putty knife to scrape it, but there's a risk of gouging the glass
  4. 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.
  5. R series engines used Carter AFB's not WCFBs The jetting info you want in in here https://www.studebaker-info.org/rjtechdec2017p2g.html#R1R2
  6. Read this for booster replacements https://www.studebaker-info.org/Tech/Brakes/Boosters/avantiboosters.html
  7. The entire Avanti article is on the front page of https://studebaker-info.org

  9. Yes, Toyota Crown used the exact same piston at 2.25". If you go that route, ask about the crossover pipes also as they may be Metric thread.
  10. If you have Turner Brakes maybe, but the 83 Avanti came from the factory with Studebaker Bendix/Dunlop Disk Brakes
  11. I haven't any interior photos that intimate, but it's entirely possible. I'm sure that since they were improving the engineering of the body, they had to think of that,
  12. I was trying to give him some idea of the way the latch worked. He sent me pics that clearly show the pivot spring, although they looked so rusty, one would think they would have broken with any exertion..
  13. I was looking at some of the many photos I have and must remark that up to early 89 (0420's) the latches were very similar to 63 and up, however on two 89's numbering in the 0458 and 0459, there's only ONE latch and it's right next to the wiper moor
