    Avanti Call!

    Thanks guys....we'll keep going.
  2. Hello Leo, i recently replaced the clutch release bearing in my '55 Studebaker Speedster, and it looked like the National bearing you received from Sl..... the difference being it was pressed onto a new sliding collar (with wire clip which retains the bearing to the release fork. I'd say the best way to replace this bearing is with another complete assembly, but perhaps a machine shop could remove your old bearing from the sliding collar and then press on the new Sl bearing?

    Avanti Call!

    I'd say one way would be for more folks to post trivia questions! I started this trivia thing back in 2014 for the enjoyment of any Avanti fan who might be interested.....I've always tried to keep it 'light'. However, to have my questions constantly picked apart by a certain person is really getting tiresome. (It's probably time to throw in the towel)......Ed
  4. Looks to me like a custom installation...I wonder why?

    Cadvanti!

    When Joe Granatelli shoehorned a 429CI Cadillac engine into his red '64 Studebaker Avanti, he re-located the battery to a concealed trunk compartment.......True?

    Avanti Call!

    Your question certainly didn't involve the phone call....it involves where the pre- production Avanti originated from...which has NOTHING to do with my original trivia question..... If you want to know where that Avanti was sent from, why not post YOUR OWN trivia question?

    Avanti Call!

    Desert Driver..the answer you gave is exactly correct..The call was made to avoid a confrontation at the Proving Ground entrance...... Pay no attention to regnalbob....he goes out of his way to pick my trivia questions apart...... A very sad character!
  13. Speaking with Dave a few years ago, he mentioned the cost of new Hurst Competition Plus shifters, customized for Avanti installations, was getting pretty high.....but he also thought that the Stude factory shifter, restored to good working condition, did a good job

    Avanti Call!

    So as not to spread inaccurate information...the correct name for that place was Studebaker Proving GROUND.
