    Avanti Ignition!

    Well, it may just be a matter of semantics, however, I'd like you two Stude fans to ponder the following hypothetical situation.... Someone buys a brand new 1964 Studebaker Challenger '6' from his/her local Studebaker dealer...The vehicle comes equipped with the 'standard' ignition system, but the customer learns of the 'new' transistor ignition and, exercising his/her OPTION, asks the dealer to install it before taking delivery of said vehicle. And, I did not use the wording 'factory installed' in this trivia question! (You have to get up pretty early...................!!)

    Avanti Ignition!

    True is not correct here! Studebaker offered a Transistor ignition Kit (AC-3548) encompassing ALL of its 1964 passenger car models.
  3. When installing a Studebaker factory transistor ignition 'kit' on a 1963 Avanti, the original distributor condenser need not be changed......True?
  4. Studebaker's 1964 transistor ignition system was optional on the Avanti and other V8 models, but not on 6 cylinder models.......true?
  5. A broken hood release cable on an '89-'91 Avanti can be a nightmare.....A friend of mine who owns a gorgeous '89 coupe added a second hood release cable attached to the central latch anticipating a possible future problem....He secured the short secondary release cable out of the way under the dashboard.

    Stamped Avanti!

    The Gift House stamp redemption catalog was similar to S&H....and the Avanti and other 1963 Studebakers featured prominently as background for that catalog.
  7. I've heard that the one and only 1964 Studebaker Daytona hardtop built at the factory with an Avanti R4 engine and four speed transmission still exists!.....The Daytona was built for an article eventually published in a period 'CAR LIFE' magazine. Does anyone know the present status of this very interesting Studebaker?

    Speedy Sherwood!

    Good guess, but that wasn't the speed!
  10. It wasn't New York, however, you're second thought (Chicago) is CORRECT!
  11. At rain soaked Bonneville In 1963, Sherwood Egbert was timed driving a supercharged Avanti at a speed of approx ......?..... mph! 1) 149.........2) 155.......3) 158......or......4) 168

    Avanti Headers!

    And you're absolutely CORRECT!......A Porsche running just ahead of #28 Avanti lost a wheel, and the Avanti ran right over it wiping out its exhaust!
  13. And there's a Blaupunkt radio going "Back Home To Indiana".....(well, at least it once left there inside an '83 Avanti!)

    Avanti Sales!

    Sounds a bit unreal but yes, $5,000,000 is CORRECT!

    Avanti Sales!

    Sorry, 500K is not correct.

    Blake's Avanti!

    Close, but no cigar!
  18. Exactly!...Metal tubing was installed to duct air from the lower grill area to the supercharger as the fabric tube was collapsing....At that point the right side hood prop was in the way, so it was moved over to the left apron.
  19. In the fiscal year ending 9/30/82, sales of new Avanti ll's totaled approx $.........?........ 1) $250,000.....2) $500,000......3) $1,000,000....or......4) 5,000,000
