    Correct. The small holes around the bottom of the breathers were silver soldered shut. Sort of odd when it could still vent around the clearance between the breather tube and the breather.
  2. Looks like a nice car. I think your first photo of the driver’s side should be replaced. It makes it appear that the side crease line has been repaired and spot painted. I’m pretty certain it’s just a reflection? I imagine it will sell.

    That’s true, Dwight. What I was referring to was the valve cover breathers.

    What modification was made to the R3 breather system in order to pass New York pollution standards?

    What state had similar emission requirements to California’s in 1964.
  7. A friend has a 63 R2 4 speed Avanti. It’s an aggressive project but thought I’d run it by you. Missing engine and transmission. California car so solid frame. Poor interior. Needs about everything. Has clean title. If you have an interest I can get you a price or put you in touch with the owner. It is a rough car but is/ was an R2 4 speed.
  8. If you still have one left I’d appreciate getting it. Let me know the mailing cost etc.

      Sure thing - I have two left and one of them is now yours.  Just got back from sending some out this evening so it'll be tomorrow before I can get it in the mail. Sorry about the delay.  No charge to ship one out; I got sent a box full of them by mistake so I don't feel right accepting money.

      I'll drop you a PM with the tracking number once it's sent!

  9. Dwight. I used to wonder why there were round light Avantis after 4892 but I’m pretty certain I figured it out. I believe body shells or partially fitted or partially completed Avantis were pulled from the assembly line and put into repair bays due to assembly issued or lack of certain optional parts etc. These cars languished in a repair bay until the required repair was done or part arrived. Some round light 64’s are almost all 64 ie post 4892 and some are practically all pre 4892. This tells me there was no pool of round light bodies they needed to get rid of.
  10. I like the idea, sounds easy but how does it hold up? Does it come in black? Is it good and tight against the window to keep rattles down?. Does it stay in place?
  11. Will be starting restoration of two Avantis soon. Will need upholstery and vinyl, dash pad, roll bar cover, chrome details, weatherstrip, nice bumpers, window runs etc, etc.Let me know what you have. 51threetwo zero 7 238 one. Leave a message and I’ll get back with you. Or PM me.

  13. Kind of neat looking at the real early cars. I didn’t take the cover off the selector as I did t want to disturb or break it. I couldn’t see the letters underneath so I assumed they may have been originally painted on the back of the plastic and have faded off. The heat sounds like good reasoning to have it and the fact it’s in a parts book and one had been advertised is interesting. I thought the two tone steering wheel is also cool. This one is broken loose at the weld joints so needs to be fixed. I’ll probably do that just to keep the originality.
  14. Yes, it was repaired before.. I will have to pull the dash assembly to get to the spot for repair. Maybe later this summer or fall or winter?
  15. And here’s another. A two tone steering wheel. Yes it’s original.
