dcj64 Posted June 12, 2015 Report Share Posted June 12, 2015 I have a 1964 Avanti R4959 that has engine number RH36. This is the original engine, and the number matches the build sheet. Some of the references I am finding say that this engine number format was first used on August 20, 1963 for Avanti’s built on or after that date. My build sheet is stamped August 20 1963, so is that the official “built date”? The factory inspection sheets are dated 8/12/1963 body and 8/14/1963 chassis. The car was invoiced 8/23/1963 showing R Q 4370 Avanti in P 6431 Avanti White. Body number is RQ 3873 which also matches the build sheet. Would inspections have normally started before the engine number was stamped? This is a round headlight car. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
