  1. I just looked in John Hull's book and, like me, he considers it to be a 1965. Of course, built in late 1965, some consider it to be a 1966 and it may not have been titled until 1967.
  2. IMO, that is a 1965 model Avanti II.
  3. Resale Red. Out of curiosity, what is the Serial Number? The "S" on the hood has been added. I would be more concerned with the frame rust than the torque box rust.
  4. You do not say what year, but it is posted in the '65 - '83 section. I would advise you to run, not walk, away from this Avanti II. I see the repairs as costing more to have someone fix than the car will be worth.
  5. It looks like a replacement block that was not stamped at installation, as it should have been.
  6. A "hog trough" is a term commonly used for the sheet metal torque boxes that run down each side of the car, next to the frame, to add rigidity. They often rust out, especially in the rust belt part of the country. It costs several thousand dollars to have them properly replaced. If there is severe rust in the torque boxes, there is often rust in other places, like the a-pillars.
  7. The one in your picture would just cause more wind resistance.
  8. Did the new starter include a new drive? Have you checked all of the grounds. like where the starter mounts? Especially on a fiberglass bodied car, you need to verify grounds everywhere.
  9. I do not know why it is referred to as a "surge tank". It is an expansion tank. I suggest repairing what you have. EDIT: That is not a stock hood liner on your Avanti.
  10. Yes, you are correct. I was too fast with my answer.
  11. My $1188 is from 1963 pricing, so assuming the price went up for 1964, I will now say; 4) $1402.70. Remember that for a Hawk, the bump for an R3 has to be added to the bump for an R1.
  12. Control of Electromatic Radiation. They were on car radios in the early 1950s.
  13. Depends on the year and model of car. For Avantis, I believe that it was 4) On top of glove box.
  14. Not just logical. I vaguely remembered reading this sometime in the dim dark past.
  15. I think that it was to help to keep the cabin cooler, so I will say, 3) reflect heat.
  16. The confusion is in the results for the 1964 race vs. the 1965 race.
  17. I referred to it that way, but it is probably just listed as a supercharger or Golden Hawk or Packard Hawk supercharger. I just wanted to let you know that it is the earlier style. IIRC, there were two for sale there currently/recently. They may only be in the discussion section and not the for sale section. I really did not pay much attention because I am not interested in one.
  18. I will say; 3) $1147, but I believe it to be $1188 (157 + 1031).
  19. At least one person on the SDC Forum is selling a VS-57 style supercharger.
  20. What is the Avanti's Serial Number? That will clear it up. The Avanti that was nearly complete in South Bend and then shipped to Youngstown for the opening there was a 1987 red convertible.
  21. Are you sure about your question? ISTR that Avanti production moved from South Bend to Youngstown during the 1987 model year.
  22. Thanks for asking - not great. I just got home from the hospital yesterday after surgery. That is why I was not at the Zone Meet.
  23. It is nice that Fel-Pro lists it, but it would be better, and easier to search for, if they spelled Studebaker correctly.
  24. I don't want to bother to look it up, so I will guess 2) 59.
