  1. The GT wheels look like a custom made Weld Wheel and the convert looks like it is sporting Ronal wheels. Bob Caser
  2. Thank you for posting this information. I love the knock off wheels on your car . Bob Caser

    Meek Avanti!

    They were the first from my knowledge to install a 425 cu in Oldsmobile engine into a Avanti. They removed a R4 engine from that Avanti and the installation was featured in a engine swap magazine published by Hot Rod / Peterson magazine. Bob Caser

    Avanti Bags!

    Wow, I attended this, showed a car at the show and do not remember receiving anything. I do recall Tom Kellogg, Gary Johnson, Ed Murray and John Cafaro attending. Bob Caser
  5. Thank you, Jolly- John and DRN1965 for your acknowledgement. Bob Caser
  6. From the photos, great job . Not removing the dash to achieve this is quire a accomplishment. How they choose to promote themselves is their business. Bob Caser
  7. I will stand corrected if I am wrong , but I have a Avanti with factory air that has the cooling kit with the two hoses. Perhaps mine is just odd. ball (R5487) Bob Caser
  8. Newman - Altman did not like the rake in the Avanti. A small block Chevy fits under the hood of a 63-64 Avanti and many engine swaps have been done over the years. Here's mine in a 1964 using a stock intake manifold and quadrajet carb and R1 air cleaner lid. Bob Caser

  10. Not a problem , Paul. Remember we go way back together, with these Studebakers. Bob
  11. The attached might answer your question. The plastic insert goes between the escutcheon and the door panel. Bob Caser
  12. I spent many, many hours attempting to fit a aftermarket into the original console or in to the dash with no success. I modified a dashboard to direct air thru the radio opening and other brainstorms as well. What I finally wound up with is what is in my photos. The plus side is that there are four air outlets which right and left outlet are enough for the driver and passenger and the two center outlets will cool the back seat. The rear window produces a lot of heat and cooling the rear seat helps keep the car comfortable. This Avanti is not for the purist, it was built to be used as a everyday car so it has 4 wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, electric power steering, blue tooth radio , etc, etc. It had a engine transplant back in the 1960s and has been modified over the years . I have a purist Avanti as well and appreciate it for what it is. A beautiful piece of design. Bob Caser
  13. I have a work in progress "restmod" 1964 Avanti, that had factory air and I removed it for a aftermarket unit. Less expensive,and it blows more air to keep the car cool in Southern California summers. I did have to modify the console, but I have been happy with the results. These are old photos and I did make a 3D parts to replicate the original console plate which needed to be shorter in height. Bob Caser
  14. That would be this car the "Due Cento " . This photo was taken behind the Paxton building with the car sitting minus engine and transmission. Bob Caser.
