  • Engine: Studebaker Avanti R1 and Gt Hawk original fuel filter

    A question for 1963 -1964 Avanti and GT Hawk owners. For you that are keeping their Studebakers originality, what fuel bowl filter make and part number are you using? I have attached a photo that I found on the net that shows what my factory fuel filter setup looks like. My Avanti is an R1 and not an R2 like the picture.

    I believe I used the AC filter that was used on '63 - '65 409 Chev. Impalas. There were 2 types one with and one without the return line. I was lucky and got an original a number of years ago, but they are about $200 now. However, repops are available for about $70. Be forewarned that the gasket material in the repops is supposedly not up to alcohol fuels and you will need to replace it.

      I assume you are talking about Fuel Filter Assemblies, I sure would not THINK an Element would cost that!
      I believe that is all the OP needs.

        Yes, the body, not the filter element. The elements are readily available.

            I believe the fuel filter element is the same for both R1 and R2 and are readily available from most auto parts stores.

              Dan GF-149 is only for the late(64) Avanti with glass bowl, early Avantis take a completely different filter element.

                  So do you think the GF-124 is right for the In-Line Filter/Pressure Return Type on Early '63 Avantis?

                  It Does look correct for inside of the Standard V8 Carter Pumps used on '63-'64 Lark Types with the Tin Bowl Filter Can.
