  1. Thanks! Was hoping to find another car that paired a GM sourced trans with the torque tube that was more common (still unusual) than a one only car! Ferrari 400 and 412 models used a turbo400 with a torque tube setup. Was thinking that if designed in the mid 80's the Avanti II might have used a 700R4. Thanks again for the reply!
  2. In a recent discussion on torque tube drivetrains, a Wikipedia search stated that for the Avanti II "A new convertible body style along with an all-new and lighter backbone chassis that was designed by Herb Adams, a former Pontiac engineer, using a torque tube with a 1985 Chevrolet Corvette aluminum rear end and independent suspension." Reference is an October 1984 Popular Mechanics magazine. I cannot find any other info. Would someone here please share some more info; was it actually built? With which transmission? Thanks.
  3. Hi, I know it has been a while since you posted your car. I'm looking for some information on your year of Avanti. I read that there was a new chassis designed and built using an '85 Corvette rear end and a torque tube. Do you know more about this or point me to where I can find more info? Please and thank you in advance for any help. Best, Wayne
