    Paxton R4!

    I have four photos of a R4 installed in an Avanti at Paxton
  6. I never specified it was ordered without an engine or transmission and labeled it speculation as a possibility If Studebaker got wind a non studebaker engine was going into an Avanti with the work being done at a subsidiary for legal and liability issues it would make sure no paper trail would exist at Studebaker on that car Also it would be god awful advertising a GM engine in a Studebaker product again liability issues ie engine blows warranty etc Officially at Studebaker it would not exist Ray Cash worked for Paxton and drove their transport vehicle many many times from Santa Monica California to South Bend to pick up and deliver Avantis Transportation would not be an issue
