  1. Hi John C, Thanks!πŸ‘ I didnt think clearly. Im restorig my R2 and now it is without driveshaft. Ofcourse easy to check Axel Ratio. http://www.how-to-build-hotrods.com/gear-ratio.html
  2. Hi, I need to buy new Speedometer Pinion. I had 19 teeth but not sure is it correct. How to know what is my R2 Axel Ratio? I dont have plate which shows that. SI dont have 19 teeth, only 18 and 21. 19 teeth is for 3.73
  3. Hi again. Sorry... found from Parts Catalogue. 526830 3/16" (w/air cond.)
  4. Im curious... Are coil spring spacers only for -64 A/C version? I dont see those from -63 Parts Catalogue.
  5. Owner's guide says that Camber is set at factory 1/2 degrees greater on the drivers side than the other side. Reason? Driver + heavy battery + steering? Or...?
  6. πŸ‘Thank you Mox. I will check what I have now.
  7. Thank you. This is clear πŸ‘
  8. Firewall Liner 63-64. Did original have that? I dont find from Authenticity guide. I assume it is ment to be used in engine side.
  9. Thanks. I think you are right - not nice in a speed. Back roof is even higer than windshield. Vinyl suits fine if user likes luxury. Myself I like more aggressive and sporty style.
  10. One-off Targa Roof. Raymond Loewy designs that were never put into production. Was this from Loewy's pen? True or false? I dont have answer but maybe you have.
  11. Hi. I found Moog variable springs for 1963 from Avantiparts. I understand that "variable" is same as progressive spring and works soft > tight. I dont know the height. https://avantiparts.biz/coil-springs-h-d-front-avanti-63-to-85-526134/ Standard Avanti -63 springs are 526135 and the free height is 14 5/8 (by SI). My old ones are 526135*MC and maybe old which makes them about 1/2" shorter. Do you have experience how Moog ones work? Do they change stance/rake comparing standard ones?
  12. Hard to belive that these where working and looked nice... but inside.πŸ™„ Result after 58 years. Time to rebuilt these. Great thing is that Bob has relesed a help. https://studebaker-info.org/Tech/brakes/dunlop/dunlopreb/diskbrakes07.html
  13. Hi! If the Turquoise which you see in my previous first post is standard stance/rake, then the other which is in the Trade Unique Cars -article ( which has been lowered), my conclusion is the article ones front is 2" lowered I think. My choise will be standard back and 1" lower front. Images are edited by me. Not for commercial use.
  14. Race and speed vehicles drivers and riders dont look back. Everythig is ahead 🀣
  15. No, no. Not a silly. I prefer oginal vehicles as they where. If I want something better I buy new one. I think its very important to respect history and vehicle culture including all discomfort it had.πŸ‘ Nom de plume "save vehicle culture"
  16. Yes. Much better and looks same design as outside rear mirror.
  17. Hi, I just bought this magazine Motor Trend July 1962. Avanti 1963 Road Test. Was this inside rear view mirror prototype?
  18. Hi, Is this a help? Article is about the part which George Dimitsas sells.πŸ€” https://www.studebaker-info.org/Tech/Hogt/hogt.html
  19. Hi! Please help. If I know what kind of Coil Spring and Rear Leafs I have to order from Eaton, I will be happy. How much + or - comparing standard. I love this.πŸ‘ https://www.tradeuniquecars.com.au/readers-rides/1808/1963-studebaker-avanti-supercharged-r2-reader-ride Owner says "couple of inces" lower. Both Front and Rear 2 inces or...? Eaton / Avanti 1963 Choices: https://www.eatondetroitspring.com/db/es-partsinquiry2.php?syear=1963&smake=Studebaker&smodel=Avanti&sbody=2+DR+Coupe&seng=V8+4.7L+-+289cid How about this? Is this with standard Rear Leafs and Front Coil Spring? I need to ask because my leafs and spring are old. Maybe originals.
  20. Hi Ischuc. Sorry I thought you see serial number from my profile R4543. The car is in the list of Avanti Magazine Las Vegas Driveaway Cars. Carpet on the floor and bottom of door panels are red/black. Seems to me old and original. I will email to Dan Booth because I have an other question also: I dont have Windshield Washer. Nothing remains there has been washer. To me seems that washer has been option which has not been chosen. First owner lived in California, Santa Ana.
  21. OK. Thanks. Claret Red deleted. Photo updated. PS. I have R-4543 Gray + Metal Red + Red/Black carpet. 99% sure its original carpet. Article says; Red & black carpet switched to all black R-4275 Lot of exceptions. Maybe lot of plans and instructions which are written in marketing department and still used whats left in warehouse. πŸ€”
  22. Hi Ischuc, I have Production Record Copy and Drive-Away Shipper from Museum. I see that my Avanti interior is 953 RDV but nothing about Carpet. I dont find email to Nostalgic Motorcars. I like to buy Born Report Build Sheet. I tried from webshop but shop didnt accept to send to Finland. Strange that I dont find interior 953 RDV. Maybe just written wrong? Correct Metal Red which I think I have is 853 RDV. Dwight. Do you find 953 RDV?
  23. OK. Thanks. Do you mean for all Exterior color which had Velvet Black 813 interior? All 1963 had.
