  3. Close!...but no cigar
  4. Any thoughts on this one?

    Free Avanti!

    CORRECT!, it's likely Mrs. Ferrucci received her FREE 1963 Avanti for that reason..... (HOW UNFAIR!!!...A brand new Avanti in lieu of a few severance dollars!!!!!!) PS...Thanks Paul, the Golden Hawk which came home to roost is taking up most of my free time.....It's a BIG project to get into even reliable, safe driver condition.....LOVING IT THOUGH!!
  10. Yes, the original would be a SN-60 model...however, if you come across a later version such as an SN-93 or SN-2000 or VR-57, they can be adapted. Also, an older Golden Hawk style VS-57 model can be modified to work by using the SN front section & pulley. What "cover" is broken on your SN?
  11. NO WORRIES!!...'cause you are CORRECT!
  12. In 1963,the connecting rod let go in cylinder # .....?.... when the Avanti Due Cento R5 engine broke at Bonneville. 1) Two......2) Three.....3) Five.....or.....4) Six
  13. No thoughts here?

    Free Avanti!

    Although it's possible 63R-4803 was a prize in some giveaway contest, that is doubtful, and there is another more likely reason...Any other thoughts on this question?
  15. And you are CORRECT!

    Free Avanti!

    In 1963, Studebaker Corp. delivered a new 1963 Avanti (63R-4803) to a Mrs. Ferrucci of Herkimer, New York for a cost of NOTHING (Gratis)....Why did Studebaker do this?

    Avanti Bearing!

    Exactly!....Answer FALSE!
  18. Sorry, 100 isn't the answer here...........and the '44' rear end is resting comfortably!
  19. It probably is an '87 Avanti Convertible...or an '87 titled as an '88.
  20. You are CORRECT!
  21. A Studebaker mechanical change for their '63 cars was replacing the bronze bushings in the steering center bearing's housing with needle bearings.....True?
  22. Got the info/question from article by current owner of this convertible.....(possible misprint on year?)
  23. In 1963, Studebaker's vice president of marketing was .....?..... 1) Roy B. Bender.....2) L.E. Minkel.....3) D.F. Detzler....or....4) Alfred E. Newman
