  1. To complete the installation of power steering on my '63 Avanti, I need to install the power steering pulley onto the vibration damper. I have removed the fan shroud, drained the coolant, and removed the radiator. I am stumped on how to remove the front air intake grille. I have removed the three phillips screws that secure the top, but the bottom three fasteners are posts that appear to be threaded into the plate along the bottom of the opening. Before I tear something up, anyone removed this grill before that can tell me how to do it?



  2. Revisit "everything has been restored." How completely was the engine "restored"? Did that include removing the freeze plugs and cleaning out the block? If not, there may be 50 years worth of sediment and rust in the engine block restricting cooling system capacity (and ready to plug up your clean new radiator).

  3. The original bill of sale for my 1963 GT Hawk along with the original warranty card for the spare tire indicates the spare is the one delivered with the car. The original tires were 710-15 Firestone 500's. The white sidewall is approx. 1" wide. The tires are itemized on the original bill of sale; the car sold new for $4,175.
