    Avanti R3848!

    Isn't this the Avanti that got R3 B-92 (the R3 engine that used to be owned by Paul Johnson)?
  2. X2...........................
  3. Milt Antonick was the guest speaker at one of our NC Chapter TriState Meets (probably 20-25 years ago) and presented a very interesting and informative talk about his time at Studebaker. Milt later worked for Chrysler Corp on thier Design staff. By the way, the correct spelling is "Antonick".
  4. #2, steering wheel. If I remember correctly, it was a 'sample' wheel provided by the supplier for Studebaker to evaluate.
  5. Was it the last 1974 Avanti II?

    Avanti R4505!

    Ed, Ed, Ed................a "vocalizing Equus caballus" is a talking horse! Equus caballus is the scientific name for a horse.

    Bully Avanti!

    Build sheet indicated it was for Senator Vance Hartke. From Wikipedia: "Rupert Vance Hartke (May 31, 1919 – July 27, 2003) was an American politician who served as a Democratic United States Senator from Indiana from 1959 until 1977. Hartke won election to the Senate after serving as the mayor of Evansville, Indiana. In the Senate, he supported the Great Society and became a prominent opponent of the Vietnam War. Hartke ran for president in the 1972 Democratic primaries but withdrew after the first set of primaries. He left the Senate after being defeated in his 1976 re-election campaign by Richard Lugar."
  9. 545, that includes R1, R2, the one R3 Lark, and the one R4 Lark.

    R3 Change!

    Only one with a final assembly date listed.
  11. Dust caps? 😆

    STP.. Avanti!

    I'll say 'German'.

    Avanti End!

    IIRC, the note was written after Christmas. I believe it said 'Happy New Year's, so I'll say false.
  14. Sorry Ed, that's not the answer. According to Paxton Service Bulletins posted on Bob Johnstone's site www.studebaker-info.org, the R3/R4 lifters "........are .25 oz. lighter than the stock lifter."
  15. Right you are Ed!
  16. R3 & R4 lifters were ____?_____ lighter than a stock R1/R2 lifter? 1) 0 oz.........2) 0.25 oz..........3) 1.2 oz...........4) 2.0 oz
  17. True, by a little over 3 oz.

    R3 Heads!

    False, 1543971 is the earlier head, but supposedly 1555479 is the more common head.
  19. I couldn't find any of the part numbers that matched the Avanti pitman arm.

    Avanti R5642!

    Power steering, and a set of high output pulleys.
  21. They were $11.20 in 1987, so I'll guess $7.00 in 1978.
  22. Ok, how many of these five were 16:1 ratio boxes? (Someone else than Ed, because I think he knows the answer.)
