1964 Studebaker Avanti R3

Recommended Posts

There is a survivor racing Cruiser down here fitted with an R4, and it sounds awesome.  The motor was acquired and fitted to the cruiser.

I can post YT vid if anyone is interested.

Steve, I'd enjoy seeing that video.

Beautiful and clean build, Manuel. I'd like to offer one small tip if I may, a thin strip of black crepe tape (I use an old roll of Chartpac 3pt tape) across the top of the door and inside edge of the vent window frame to represent the window weatherstripping would be an extra little touch to an already superb job. Again excellent work, I really enjoy your posts.

Gee Mr Moto, sorry I missed your post from Feb last year.

This video is a tribute to local racer who passed away, and the first bit is a bit slow, so jump to 6:48 where the engine features.

This vehicle was owned and built by local Studebaker dealer, Bert Needham, and Warren Weldon was the main driver through its racing history.

Sorry for the hi-jack.

Love the Avanti.:wub:

Super cool cars and I've always loved the quirkiness of them. You've done an outstanding job with this one. You should be very proud.

Not sure how I missed this one when it was originally posted, either.  Easily the best Avanti build that I've ever seen, period!
