  1. I live in Massachusetts and above ground home heating oil tanks are 12 gauge steel by code. If the answer is not 18 gauge I've got to go with 20. Can't be 25 or 30, just can't be!
  2. Thanks for responding to my question about the frame manufacturer. I thought I came across something about "Armor Guard" and the frames. I have Avanti 63R1400 and was wondering if that was early enough to have been assembled by Midland. If so, how would I identify it?

      Hi Mark, my own '63 is #1379...built very near your #1400....In my humble opinion, both these Studebaker Avantis were assembled on Budd built frames...Be well,  Ed

      I'm hoping 2022 is the year my Avanti is back from the shop. After that, I'll be cruising around Natick.

  3. I was wondering if someone knew off the top of the head who supplied Studebaker with their Avanti frames?
  4. I have an aftermarket Stewart Warner speedo and I suppose I would have been happy with it but it has no hi-beam indicator light! I believe I have sourced a 140 mph can but really want the original script on the Studebaker speedo. I didn't notice until recently that for both the 140 & 160 speedo, all the numbers follow each other around the dial except for the last numbers (140 or 160) which are turned in the opposite direction for easier reading, one would guess. The Studebaker International faceplate I see listed in the catalog looks nothing like the original which is ideally what I want.
  5. I'm looking for a 160 speedometer for my '63 Avanti. If that's not possible I was wondering if an AUTHENTIC looking faceplate re-pop has been made?
  6. It's like Christmas in May!
