    Prototype R2!

    God assessment of what happened Gary...which makes the answer, however, FALSE!
  2. mfg

    Avanti Knock!

    Could be loose caliper bolts...however...there is a more common reason! Any other thoughts here?
  3. The original owner of the Avanti R2 powered 'Studebaker SS' was Studebaker Corporation.......True?
  4. mfg

    Avanti Axle!

    Avanti 'model 44' rear axle shafts are interchangeable left/right.........True?
  5. Original Studebaker Avanti metric Speedometers read up to .......?...... kph. 1) 240......2) 260......3) 280.....or.....4) 300
  6. If a 'knocking' sound is heard from the front of your Dunlop disc braked Avanti, (when the brakes are applied), it could very well mean that the ........?....... have worked loose.
  7. Not sure about that.....but thought I'd mention we took a side trip to Indy during the 2007 SDC International meet, and had the opportunity to take the van ride around the Indy track....I recall that it seemed like a long distance between leaving the fourth turn and crossing the three feet of brick at the start finish line.

    Avanti SS!

    The Avanti R2 engine used in the 'Studebaker SS' (later known as the Excalibur SS) was moved rearward in the Super Lark Daytona frame ......?...... inches. 1) 12.......2) 22.......3) 28.....or 4) 31

    Avanti Vent!

    Gary & Paul are both CORRECT here!
  10. If the original frame WERE to be repaired, this sure would be the way to do it....with the body completely out of the way!

    Avanti Vent!

    The top cover on the t-86 3 spd standard transmission used in a few 1963-'64 Studebaker Avantis should be installed with its vent hole facing rearward......True?
  12. UPDATE.....After listening to and enjoying my 'Custom Autosound' AM-FM radio virtually every day for the last seven months, I'll just say that I'm very satisfied with this item! Custom Autosound Company actually e-mailed me about three months after I purchased their radio to ask how I liked the unit, and if I had any issues or comments....I was impressed with that personal touch!......Ed
  13. WOW!....your going to have ONE HELL of an Avanti when you're through!!!....Love the subtle body mods.....AND THAT FRAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  14. This is an old post I just happened to notice.....Just adding my two cents that there was an overdrive unit which bolted to the back of the Avanti Powershift. (or any other Borg Warner cast iron case 'model 8' three speed automatic transmission) I believe it was called the 'Cone Overdrive' (an aftermarket unit) and it apparently worked quite well...I have no idea how many were sold, and probably would not work in an Avanti, as it was a bit bulky and would no doubt clash with the frame 'X' member!
  15. Pictures reveal these Avantis actually look to be in pretty good shape....although there were no pics of underneath.

    Avanti Request!

    And you are CORRECT!
  17. I believe Gunslinger is correct here....Although it's not written in stone, I do believe that it was the same car repainted for Daytona.
  18. No, more noticeable here!.....Seen the pics...the '84 has the earmarks of a Touring Coupe.
  19. TWO AVANTIS AVAILABLE IN MASSACHUSETTS.......Former owner passed away.........Present owner has stored them five years and wants them gone.........Haven't seen the cars, but they sound like they're in poor condition...........A '74 and an '84............NO TITLES..............Owner wants $2,000 for pair. If seriously interested, contact Charlie at northeastavanti@aol.com (He has pics) Ed C (mfg)
  20. Which purchaser of a (then new) 1963 Avanti requested Studebaker to do the following?....."Please give it an extra polish with your feather duster" !) Johnny Carson......2) Thomas McCahill.....3) Ian Fleming.....or....4) Dick Van Dyke
  21. Avanti motors built .....?...... supercharged Avanti ll's in '68-'69. 1) One........2) Two.......3) Three....or....4) Five
  22. Yes, channel around glass is a low luster stainless steel.....vent window frame itself is chrome plated die -cast (pot) metal.
