None of the above.  She set a new speed record for women by driving an R3 Avanti at 162.70 MPH.  Assuming that you are referring to bettering the new record that she set, I will say 3) 165.37 as the answer that you are looking for.

Have to disagree with you Gary....I'm looking at a period poster showing a front view of the record setting Avanti at Bonneville with Paula standing beside it, and the text mentions one of the above (1--4) figures as the record speed......and answer #3 is not it!:(

 

Anyone else want to take a shot?
