  1. I don't think anyone has ever painted a '56 Golden in the Speedster Congo Ivory/Pimlico Grey colors...Personally, I think that paint combo would look superb!
  2. Hey, I didn't realize you owned a 56J! I like the colors...is that Ceramic Green/Snowcap White?....Auto or standard shift? Mine was originally Cambridge Grey/Snowcap White, however before I sold it in '79 I painted it the factory Sunglow Gold/Snowcap White paint combo. I'll keep in mind your parts offer!....Thanks, Ed
  3. Yes!...I remember!....When I was a kid I did a clutch job on this Hawk.....on my back....and that T-85 transmission certainly is a "bear"!! I remember taking the clutch assy. to a local jobber, thinking a Packard clutch may have to be special ordered...The guy behind the counter said....No problem! ... that's the same as an 11" Ford truck clutch...How many do you want??
  4. Well, I need another Stude like I need another hole in my head......BUT I BOUGHT BACK THE CAR TODAY!!!!!!!!!! Not quite the same car as it was when I entered it into the 1975 Autorama show at the Hynes Auditorium in Boston, however, it still has 'class'.......... It will be interesting awakening that big Packard engine.... (car hasn't been run in years!)
  5. 1956 Golden Hawk....3 spd O/D.....Power steering....It has been said this setup is most desirable for this model Stude....Haven't seen car in 42 years....Frank Ambrogio (56J Only website) connected me with owner....Really can't wait to see car....NOSTALGIA!!!!!!

    Over heating

    Good find!......Air bound!
  8. Very good idea...then you can thoroughly check it out....Looks to be a VERY nice Avanti ll....Best of luck! PS...Avanti ll's are great everyday drivers, I've been using my '83 in that capacity for 27 years.
  9. Type 'F' (Ford) auto trans fluid works fine...however, it may be a good idea to drain what's in there now and do a complete refill.
  10. WOW!....Tomorrow I'm going to look at (and possibly repurchase) a Studebaker which I sold in 1979.......Still owned by the same fellow I sold it to, his son is now helping his dad 'downsize' his vehicle collection....Haven't seen this car in 42 years.....EXCITED!!
  11. Hello Roy!....Good to have you on board!.....Nice to bring one back that's been off the road for many years! There's a fellow on this forum (I believe his name is Bob Kline) who is parting out 3 or 4 Avantis should you need used parts....and I strongly recommend speaking with Dave Thibeault, an Avanti/Studebaker parts dealer here in Mass, for new parts and technical info......Tel# 978-897-3158...............Good luck!

    Wheel Of Avanti!

    Aw Paul,.....You should've weighed the wheel!......#3 is not correct! HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!
  14. I remember a Richard Quinn historical photo (in black& white) of a row of '55 President engines on final assy at the factory....I'm pretty sure the timing covers were painted the block color....but I can't swear to it!
  15. I dare say the 'lesser' '63-'64 Studebaker V8's, (259 and standard 289), had timing gear covers painted black, same as the rest of the long block.
  16. On my present R2 Avanti, I always leave the blower belts installed...Also, I replaced that heavy cast iron water pump pulley with a lightweight aluminum one. However, I don't rack up anywhere near the mileage in this Avanti as I did in my first R2 job!
  17. The difference in diameter between Studebaker Avanti standard and high output supercharger pulleys is ......?...... inch. 1) 3/16.....2) 1/4.....3) 3/8.....or.....4) 5/8

    Avanti Name!

    In 1988, The Seattle, Washington area Avanti Club held a 'Name The Convertible" contest........to give a 'name' to the first 1988 Avanti Convertible delivered in that area....There were 100 entries,..............The winning name was......?...... 1) Sweetness.....2) Timeless.....3) Vanna....or.....4) Topless
  20. The answer is indeed FALSE.....However, I don't understand you're reasoning here!

    Vented Avanti!

    CORRECT!...answer false!
  22. Concerning a 1987 model Avanti, a power window motor originally made for the right side door of a similar year Chrysler will interchange with a right side '87 Avanti window motor.....True?
  23. Original Studebaker Avanti steel wheels weigh approx......?...... lbs. 1) 12......2) 16......3) 21.....or....4) 25
