i have been lurking here about a year and have posted a few times. I thought i should tell you i got the 63 R2 4 speed Avanti i have owned for over 20 years going today and going is the word for it i forgot how they do go. I haven't had it going for proubly at least 10 years.I have been driveing other studes s
o i didn't miss it so much.
All it took was a new fuel pump and a battery and away she went.Now i have to do 10 years of cleaning then i can go play

Good to hear.

Instead of Lurking, you'll be lurching that Avanti at the next stoplight or a dead end road. Just don't get caught like you see in this video. :D:D:D

Merv, congratulations for putting another Avanti back on the road especially a 4-spd. Clean it up and enjoy it. Join the new Colorado Avanti Chapter and the AOAI and have even more fun. Info can be found here: http://www.aoai.org/
