    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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"

  7. Remember that there is a right and a left.
  8. The round headlight was not listed as a regular production option. However, it may have been a special order. The build sheet might verify if it was factory installed. They are available from Dan Booth at Nostalgic Motor Cars, 248 349-4884 Most likely it was installed by a previous owner.
  9. Those holes are not factory. The floor carpet had a vinyl strip attached to the edge and was glued to the edge of the spare tire well. The rest of the carpet was not glued. The carpet on the tire cover also had a vinyl strip and was stapled to the cover.
  10. The carpet is glued down. The only fasteners were the two screws used at the top of the trunk latch to hold the carpet. The pictures are not clear enough to reference the location of the holes.
  11. He was last listed in the 2009 Avanti Roster. Merle W. Jacobson 36 Sunbrier Road Springfield, MA 1129 From Google search. Merle W Jacobson resided in Cocoa, Florida. Merle died at the age of 80 years old and was born in May 1937 and died in June 2017.

  12. 1529 is the correct Avanti fuel pump. All Avantis use the same repair kit. You will use all the parts shown except for one valve, gasket and spring. C 4024 has nothing to do with the fuel pump. If you look you will see a similar number on each plate page. As mentioned above that is not a diagram of an Avanti fuel pump, it is from earlier parts catalogs.
  13. This is from Bob Johnstone's website. studebaker-info.org/Avanti/AVparts/87mcold.txt
  14. goldhawk AOAI Forum Members 6 My Avanti:87 Avanti Posted June 16 Just need to know if there is a hidden nut up inside the trunk area where the antenna comes down. The top nut just keeps spinning and spinning, and only have about an 1/8" opening between the outer car body and the antenna base. Anybody know if there is a nut down under? regnalbob AOAI Forum Members 471 My Avanti:63R-2809 Posted June 16 There is no nut inside the trunk. A factory Avanti antenna has no nut inside the trunk. Place a mirror on the trunk floor under the antenna and you can see if you have a nut.

  17. There is no nut inside the trunk.
  18. Avanti and Jet-Thrust engines used two different starters. Early models used a 3-pole starter, model number MDU. Starting around May, 1963 a 4-pole starter, model number MDY was used.

  20. 3.07, 4.09 & 4.55 axle ratios were Special Order for 1964.
  21. The low compression heads were an option on the R1 for 1964. According to the parts catalog the included 4 speed was only used with a 3.07 axle.
