  1. ....regarding the rationale about appending either an "A" or a "B" to new car (Avanti) registrations in California, in 1962. Does anyone recall this discussion? Thx
  2. R3 mounts were shorter / check the part #
  3. Did you notice the chassis number of the car?
  4. The Master Power Brake Combo valve balances Disk and drum application to prevent nose-dive and has a brake light switch built in.
  5. Look up a Master Power Brake Combo Valve
  6. All I could find on Massagli was that they were an International Harvester dealer in 1962
  7. Take lots of pictures for the return trip
  8. Make one out of a Sprite or Mountain Dew bottle
  9. The article you saw likely said the calipers were the same, which is true, the rotors....no
  10. I used the entire console and mated it with the lower 70 original. All the gauges are Autometer. After I bought two of the 89 heat/cool system controls (Chrysler), I did not like the design and went with original A/C knobs on the lower part of the light switch panel. The panel has indicators for all the lights and 700R4 Trans lockup / The heat/fresh air controls are above the left knee / the A/C unit has an integral hot water pass-thru so you really get "defrost". / The shifter is from a mid 90s Camaro and required a floor be installed underneath, which also prevents a lot of heat transfer The shifter also has the neutral safety switch and backup light controls. The A-Pillar guage pod is for the SN-60. / Tilt Column is from a 90s Chevy Panel truck, Wheel is Momo. E-brake handle is on the floor..... and the Mel inspiration Dash inlay was created by making a mold from the 89 dash cavity and using high quality furniture grade plywood in 3 pieces veneered in Carpathian Burl Elm and sealed in clear epoxy.
  11. Museum of Modern Art show Car? Scratch that, but I was close R1Lark had some of it.... https://www.studebaker-info.org/AVDB1/R3000/63R3848/63R3848cabella.html
  12. Mel was my inspiration, when I installed an 89 Dash in my 70.
  13. Daniel Stern has just released an expanded article on the change from white to amber turn signal lenses. A great read at https://www.curbsideclassic.com/automotive-histories/automotive-history-when-front-turn-signals-changed-colour-amber-waves-of-pain/ He mentioned that "In the comments you'll find some meaty, Auto Pact-related discussion of why Studebakers might have been singled out for harassment at inspection time while other '63-'64 cars with clear lenses skated through."
  14. Front hubs? for the disk brake rotors?
