    Whereabouts of Avanti R 5603 ?

    I was going through one of my Avanti parts books and came across a note written by a dealer years ago about parts for this car. It was sold 11-10-63. Engine # RK 317. There is mention of a Howard Taylor as owner. I was just curious as I'm sure many of us have such notes and writings in some of our books. I have no clue where my Dad and I got the manual but something tells me that some SDCer will know. Check YOUR books and see the intimate details some dealers wrote!

    Thanks for the info. I should have dug out my AOAI roster to check first. I still enjoy looking through old parts/shop manuals. There were many notes in our Kaiser-Frazer and Chilton books!
