  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 latest magazine to you. Lew
  5. 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.
  6. contact Dale Sexton for the hubcaps. He advertises them in Avanti Magazine.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. What a thrill!! I want your job, Bob! 🙄
  10. I received copies of the December 2020 French automobile magazine, AutoRetro, and it includes a very well photographed and written 12 page full color feature on Avantis from 1963 to 1982. Copies are for sale from the AutoRetro website at https://www.auto-retro.fr A number of AOAI members and their cars are featured in the article, including members in France and Switzerland, and one from the U.S.
  11. The number for his daughter who is selling the car is in Avanti Magazine. It Is well worth the asking price. It is the first official 1964 Avanti, was the car shown at the New York Auto Show for the '64 models, and was restored using all NOS original parts that Dick got when he still worked for Studebaker. It is worth every penny of the asking price.
