Avanti brakes...


Recommended Posts

At RQ-B2263, Avanti Motors changed from the original under-dash parking brake pull-handle to one mounted in the former console.  From where did Avanti Motors initially source the new handle from?

Not sure, but always figured it was sourced from Corvette:huh: (Generous Motors)

I'll say Willy's but you know I'll dispute 2263 is the first. Switched to, is probably a better term if none after were built with the under dash handle.

Was the Willys lever used on a few Avanti ll's before Avanti Motors changed to the Corvette lever??:huh: (Interesting!)

That's it!  Avanti Motors first used a handle from Willy's before switching to a C3 Corvette handle after several dozen Avantis were equipped with the Willy's brake handle.
