    Avanti R4505!

    No, quite sure the show was about a dancing turtle. That was one of my favorite shows...couldn't beat those commercials!!
  20. I PROBABLY SHOULDN'T SAY THIS..!! But you know 'Avanti Gray' was kind of a 'band aid' color Studebaker came up with when they ran into problems with 'Avanti Black'.... If obtaining 'Avanti Gray' becomes to much of a hassle, why not block out the body of your Avanti to perfection, and refinish it in 'Avanti Black'? You won't have any problem obtaining that color, and a black Avanti, when done up properly, looks outstanding!...Good luck...Ed

    Avanti R4182!

    I wonder what "sold with no options" really means? Could it actually mean..... RI, 3 speed standard trans, no p/s or p/w, Blackwall tires, deluxe interior, no tinted glass, and no other options? Is that what a list price of $4445.00 got you??

    R3 Advantage!

    Yes, for normal driving there's nothing wrong with the conventional rods..... But for high RPM use, I can see how those wrist pin lock bolts & nuts, plus the drilled hole itself, might be a real liability!
