  1. Here's a hint: See page 5 of the latest Avanti Magazine, Issue #200.
  2. The brass fittings in the transmission are 1/8 NPT to 3/8 inverted flair 90-degree brass fittings.
  3. We had several tech articles on adapting the Tremec or T5 transmissions to an Avanti. Issue 99, page 28; Issue 94, page 25; Issue 180, page 38; and issue 146, page 25.

    Leno Avanti?

    Yes, when he was on a tour of the Studebaker National Museum he said that he would like to own a Super Lark/Daytona one day, but so far, has no Studebaker in his collection. (By the way, he was driven to the museum from his downtown South Bend hotel with me and Don Lindner, in Don's 2007 Avanti).

  6. A 1987 Avanti convertible with original mileage of 922 miles is being offered for sale on Hemmings Make Offer website. It is currently receiving an offer within $9,500 of the asking price. Very unusual, because of the low miles and like-new condition. there is no wear on any surface, body, soft top, interior, chassis or engine compartment. Wire wheels are pristine too. The tires even have their original South Bend air inside ! 😎 Here is the link: https://www.hemmings.com/auction/1987-avanti-ii-396173
  7. It should work now. I don't know what the original link didn't work. but I fixed it above. https://www.hemmings.com/auction/1983-avanti-ii-788071
  8. Not mine: This was just posted on Hemming Auctions, this belonged to a longtime St. Louis area Avanti Owners Assoc. member who spared no expense into making this 1983 Avanti II both look and drive excellent. It is the last year of the chrome bumper Avanti and drives as well as it looks.

  9. Here are a couple of pictures from Friday photoshoot at the Inn at Saint Marys
  10. During the AOAI's June 2022 national meet in Milwaukee, Wisconsin celebrating the Avanti's 60th anniversary meet participants got a chance to listen to Jim Bunting about what transpired in the creation in 1997 of the AVanti eXperimental, otherwise known as the AVX automobile. Because of the three prototypes created, John Seaton and Mike Kelly were able to continue Avanti production in Villa Rica, Georgia beginning with models in 2001. Enjoy the 35 minute presentation from this year's meeting.
  11. Greenfield man restores classic sports cars he fell in love with as kid People from all over the country take their classic sports cars to Mike Baker in Greenfield at Avanti Restoration & Service. This story and video ran on Indianapolis television station WTHR on May 13, 2022. Link: Avanti Restoration and Service
  12. On the way home from last week's Milwaukee 60th anniversary meeting, we grabbed a a few photos after exiting I-55, and promptly had to wait for a the very long freight train of coal cars. We got off Interstate 55 and headed to historic route 66 into Carlinville, Illinois for the last leg of the trip to get some scenic photographs. This first two shots are while waiting for a train to pass heading into Carlinville, Illinois. The next two shots are in Staunton, Illinois by a old shop. There is an old 1962 Lark along the building. The final two shots in Staunton show the car along Illinois Route 4 in front of the Historic Route 66 signs at the corner of Pearl and Hackman streets. Last photo is getting gas for the last time in Glen Carbon, Illinois, off of Interstate 270, about 35 miles from home. Before leaving the gas station, a younger guy took a photo of the car with his phone and asked about it, and an older guy asked about the car and I handed him one of the informational cards about AVX 1!
  13. I don't think Dave Thibeault will be at the meet.
  14. DONT MISS OUT -- June 14-17, 2022
  15. 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.
