  1. I don't think Dave Thibeault will be at the meet.

  3. You can also rebuild your original R2 (or R1) fuel pump with a rebuild kit from https://www.deadnutson.com/carter-high-performance-x-fuel-pump-rebuild-kit/ They are same kits that Ford and AMC use and work great. I've rebuilt several original Carter fuel pumps for Avanti, and the diaphragms and internal valves are good to use with modern fuel that contain ethanol.

    Avanti TT!

    And the very first production R3 came from the factory with a 4:55 TT rear axle ratio. Within a couple of months after it was sold, the first owner replaced the high numerical ratio with something less, I believe it was 3:73
  5. The were just mailed this past week, February 18 or 21, so you should be receiving your magazine soon, probably within the week.
  6. I must agree!! πŸ€— πŸ€— πŸ€— 😎
  7. #2: 1970 to 1973, He was also a longtime Avanti Magazine editor, responsible for stepping up the quality from a newsletter to a full fledged magazine.
  8. Hello

    How are rankings on this forum calculated. I seem to have more "badges" than a lot of others who have contributed a lot more than I ever will

      I think it just depends on how many posts you make. Β  Β The rankings were reset sometime last year when I updated the forum software, so some who have posted a lot, but not recently would show less than you.

  9. I say Nancy Egbert
  10. But also to compensate for the weight of the driver, and probably a heavy battery on the left-hand side of the vehicle.
  11. False. The last Avanti, R5643 was displayed on the National Mall, but is not on the National Historic VEHICLE Register. There are 30 cars listed on the National Historic Vehicle Register, administered by Hagerty, but not the Avanti. Hagerty National Historic Vehicle Register Historic Vehicle Association
  12. There is a very good, step-by-step 7 page article on Avanti dash pad replacement in Avanti Magazine Issue 189, winter/spring 2020, replacing the dash pad that is made by Nostalgic Motorcars using original molds and tooling. Here is the first page of the article:
  13. There were sketches by Sherwood Egbert and Raymond Loewy of a targa-type roof for the Avanti, but none such car was produced. The first owner of this car above, 63R-2833 in Pasadena, California had his Avanti modified with a targa style roof. It was auctioned in March 2019 at the RM/Southeby's Fort Lauderdale, Florida auction for $104,500, including buyer's fees. We had two articles on the car in Avanti Magazine Issue 186, spring/summer 2019.
