    He might be reselling NuRelics kit. It's always a good idea to go through a Stude vendor, even for aftermarket parts. Usually the service can't be beat.

      I just got a look at what he has and it appears to be a well thought out, quality assembly. Over the past couple years, I figured out a way to adapt different motors to the original regulator, but this look like a lot less work to install. He says you remove the entire old regulator assembly and keep only the glass and bottom channel

        This is a pic of the K body regulators. I have the Avanti ones in my shop, and also have installed them. This is not them. Yes, this is from Nu Relics. They don't list the Avanti, but rest assured the DO have them.
        You need the FORD window switches to look close to the original Avanti switches. An additional 180 over the basic $435 regulator price.

          I noted the disparity in looks between this and an original Avanti regulator, but all we discussed was the Avanti.... Thought this was it

            Is that price for one or a pair? Are the motors two contact or four? Just curious because I couldn't find them on their site either.

            Thx Bob

              Price is for the pair, two wire motor. You must state for Avanti when ordering as the listing for Studebaker only states for 53-64, which will get you the Hawk type by default. A word of caution.... the only mounting point for the regulator for Avantis is the three bolt center pivot ara that is the weakest part of the door. It is usually broken or cracked to begin with. The inner structure of the door has to be trimmed to clear the motor, and it (the motor) hangs too freely, and has no support. I always have to add a spacer, and a long support bolt , which is not mentioned anywhere in the limited instructions. The new regulators have no helper springs, and the action is quite slow after all is said and done.
              IMHO the best solution is to use the original regulators, with a second helper spring located where manual regulators have them. Replace the original Bosch motors with new complete motors and gears from an 89 Jeep Commanche. Get the new switches, and two wire harness from Ne Relics, and you will be golden. I have done this, and it works. No Chicom repop motors for 300 bucks anymore. No 5 wire crap to snake through the door openings.

                Thanks for the info Brad, it's been copied to my Avanti file. The comment on the Jeep Motors will probably help the OP with his quest as Joe's looking around for alternatives to his original electric setup.

                As an aside, I did a bit of searching yesterday for the motors to use and found a fair bit on Thunderbird motors and a reference to a Chrysler motor but nothing specific on year or make. Either my search skills have hit the skids, probably, but just couldn't find the reference here or on Bob's site with Google. So thanks again!!

                  For quick reference, actually the part number for the motors is Dorman 742-304, and 742-305 for left and right motors. Fits many Mopar products

                      You will need this whole kit if the motors don't have the gears
