  1. This is from the SDC Forum. On the 1990 sedans the ignition needs to be ON to make the switch in the centre console work.
  2. Just want to save before you edit this post.
  3. Spoke with the owner of Power Brake X-Change in Pittsburgh and he said the Mopar boosters available are not a direct fit for Avantis.
  4. You still didn't answer my question. I have to laugh when you threaten to block me. If it makes you happy block me. Yet another post you edited after crying about the SDC Forum & Studebaker Drivers Club.
  5. Why did you edit your post? You told me to stop pestering you and go back to the SDC Forum which is a better 'fit' for me. How was I pestering you? You made a statement and I replied.
  6. They are not exactly the same. The Dodge is 8 inches in diameter, The Avanti is 8 3/4 inches in diameter.
  7. Number 4 is the vacuum line to the throttle kicker used on the original Carter AFB.
  8. This may help in your search. GM / General Motors Colonial Yellow / #eed69a Hex Color Code The hexadecimal color code #eed69a is a light shade of yellow. In the RGB color model #eed69a is comprised of 93.33% red, 83.92% green and 60.39% blue. In the HSL color space #eed69a has a hue of 43° (degrees), 71% saturation and 77% lightness.
  9. Studebaker purchased Paxton Products.
  10. This problem was corrected in mid 1961 production for V8 engines. Studebaker used a smaller oil passage in the rocker arm shafts to restrict oil to the top end and a larger drain hole in the heads to get the oil back to the pan more quickly.
  11. To clarify, the grommets were only used on 3 speed column shift transmissions.
  12. The well nuts use a 10-32 x 1.25 inch Phillips oval head screw.
  13. The 66-67 Roster does not show Edward Albert as a member and the cars are not listed by serial number, only by year, model and color. The 1970 Roster does not show him as a member. Also 63R-1204 and 63R-1889 are not listed.
  14. Edward Albert is listed in the 1986 Roster as owning 63R-1889.
  15. R 5642 sold for $104,500 at Sotheby's Auction in September, 2019.

    The change was made at a body number and not a serial number. My Avanti is R4137 and body number RQ-2998. Built April, 1963 R4341 has body number RQ-3011. Built May, 1963 R4130 has a South Bend body, RQ-5190. Built April, 1963

    The hood brace was eliminated during the 1963 model year.
  19. Without some documentation there is no way to know for sure when it was placed in service as a demonstrator or when it was sold. It could have been placed in service in October or a later date. Studebaker paid some incentives to dealers at the end of the model year and this may one of them.
  20. The $200.00 would be a credit to the dealer when the Avanti was put into service as a demonstrator. The Avanti could have been in stock for several months, however it would not qualify for the credit until the dealer registered it with Studebaker's Demonstrator Program. From Studebaker: " The retail purchaser of any vehicles previously used as a demonstrator is entitled to any mileage or time period remaining in the warranty, calculated from the date the vehicle was first placed in service as a demonstrator"
