  1. It seems that Window Motor World must have changed, but another source for very good work for power window motors is New Relic. They only list new avanti front door power window motors and regulators, but if you call them, they might be able to either replace or repair your rear quarter window motors and regulators. https://www.nu-relics.com/category-s/545.htm
  2. A very good source for collector car valuation is Hagerty.com. https://www.hagerty.com/apps/valuationtools/1981-Avanti-Avanti_II Looking up a 1981 Avanti II on the site, we see: Current Values #1 Concours$25,200 Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The
  3. All three AVX's were together for the first time at the Avanti meet in Jacksonville, Florida in 2016, the only three made. AvantiFest pages.pdf Jacksonville 56.pdf
  4. Thanks... I added a "Maybe" to the questions.
  5. Avanti Magazine Issue 192 featured several futuristic designs, and there is talk about the possible build of an electric Avanti. For a future Avanti Magazine feature, we would like to get your opinion which of these designs for the future would be best. Please let us know and click to participate is this short, four question survey: Avanti Marketing Research Questionnaire
  6. Would you post the pictures here on the forum and send details to me for the spring/summer Avanti Magazine? The winter/spring issue goes in the mail the week, so too late for that issue.
  7. Keep track of the build and progress in pictures and when you finish this spring, send me some photos and a few paragraphs of what you did and how you did it, and maybe I can use it in Avanti Magazine.
  8. You might consider donating your newsletter and magazine collection to our AOAI memorabilia committee. I am one of 5 on the committee and we keep complete sets for the use of anyone in AOAI.
  9. What Brad says.... we have rebuilt several original R-series Carter fuel pumps using the kits from the link in the above post. It makes our original fuel pumps better than new, as this company uses pump diaphragms that are resistant to the alcohol in our modern day fuels.
  10. nice work on the Dodge!! Looking forward to your progress on your Avanti! From the few pictures you posted here, it looks like you have a good solid car to work with, especially if the frame and underbody torque boxes are solid. Are you a member / subscriber to Avanti Magazine? We have a number of Avanti parts vendors advertising in each issue, as well as many technical and. how-to articles that may be of assistance to you. If you don't currently received our 100-plus page full color quarterly magazine, private message me your mailing address and I will mail a copy of the lat
  11. Thanks!! and that December Avanti has a checkered past... it's second owner, in 1964, was nationally known musician and comedian Herb Shriner. Both Herb and his wife were killed when the brakes failed. It was said that he worked on the brakes himself, and could have been the cause of the failure.
  12. contact Dale Sexton for the hubcaps. He advertises them in Avanti Magazine.
  13. I downloaded your image from the links you provided and added them to your first post. You posted the image source URL, which will NOT show photos. We do this to prevent sites from posting unrelated images to our forum. In the future, when you want to add images to a post, after writing your posting, just choose and upload. your photos, or drag them to the bottom of your message window, as explained in the screenshot below.
  14. The original post was by Craig (forum member 8E45E) and referred to an item in AutoRetro at the end of the Avanti article that the magazine will next feature the Mercedes SLC in a future issue, similar to the treatment they gave to the Avanti.
  15. What a thrill!! I want your job, Bob! 🙄
