'Bonneville' #9!

Recommended Posts

On Studebaker Avanti 63R1007 (Bonneville #9) the fiberglass reinforcing cross brace (on the underside of the hood) was removed by the Granatellis to clear the R3 engine assembly.......True?

This sounds familiar, so I will say that this is True.  Later R3s were lowered with thinner engine mounts.

Your response makes good sense Gary, however no, the hood on #9 wasn't cut!:(

Bodies were lifted  in the front for clearance on all factory R3 Avantis built for production.

Not sure about the mules or bonneville cars.
