  • Other: Installing a Battery in My 1964 Avanti That Now Looks Like the Originals.

    I just finished installing a new battery in our 1964 Avanti with the caps and label that was described in the last Avanti magazine. Please don't tell me the sticker is on backwards. I researched it in the authenticity book and the pictures in the article. I darned near put it on the other way.

    Outstanding engine compartment. One day after the warranty expires on my battery I'll do the same with mine.

      It makes sense that the Decal reads from the far side of Post Locations, which is toward the Fender because in the largest usage Cars for that Group 24 Battery, it will read correctly, and '64 Avantis were not one.

      That is a VERY Correct, Original looking Engine Compartment, but is THAT a RED Avanti? .

      It MUST be the Lighting, because it does not Look Burgundy like most '64's or the '63 Maroon a very few '64's had.

      And Yes I know those are not the correct Studebaker Avanti "Names" for them, they ARE what they actually Look like.

        So for those of us without an Avanti but do have a 12 volt battery, where did you get the topper. Decal I assume is from S.I.

          SI's catalog lists a couple of versions of decal (depending on year). Other vendors may have them.

            Rich, the car is Avanti Red which is the original colour. It scored a first at the Avanti meet in Dayton two years ago.
