    Just simply check the Engine serial number on the Drivers side, top, front corner of the block, we can tell what engine you have from that.

    I have no idea how a "Vin. decoding site" would have ANY idea what Engine is in a Studebaker, probably NOT!

    The block serial number will indicate in which vehicle the engine was originally installed. As we all know, there are R3-numbered blocks with other heads, other blocks with R3 heads and every other possible combination thereof.

    Our own "VIN-decoding site" lists the known R3 Avanti. As Rich says, any other site is suspect.

    Bill, I'm here in Spokane, so let me know if I can be of any assistance.
