    HI in Boulder in Boulder
    Just noticed the post, pic, and comments, and was surprised by all the commonality. I live in Colorado,have a white 2lt z51 scheduled to build in Feb and had a 1963 R2, 4 speed, 411 posi, Avanti gold "super car" That is the one car I wish still had of the more than a few I have owned, including some Vettes. Such is life I guess. I feel pretty certain we are all in for some more great times with the C8.

    really well done...post up photos of your 64 avanti...Love to see if we can see the differences ..

    JB-

    Studebaker made running changes to the Avanti, depending on what was in the parts bin. So, depending on build date, you could have gotten round or square lights. I like the round ones best. Man, that car is sweet!! I see the wood grain dash inserts, a '64 item for sure.

    I can see that the Avanti is as good as new, maybe better. The Avanti 2 was marketed in Seattle but didn't do well. I believe there is a market--but what do I know. Charlie aka cutnout

ID:	96593 Appreciate the interest in my 1964 Avanti R2. I have owned the car for eleven years and it’s been in my family since the early seventies. I will selling it later next year with funds towards my C8 purchase. My 2002 Corvette millennium yellow with 16,000 miles will stay. Thanks again for the interest.

    Hurricane Ivan has the pictures so hear goes a description. The 64 GTO was a tan convertible with tan inside. Naturally it was a 389ci with 3 two barrel carbs as an option. it came with a Hurst shifter and a 4 speed transmission and the standard AM radio. It also had power steering and brakes. The top was tan and was an automatic. Most don't know the 64 was a Tempest with the GTO option at about 390 bucks. The separate branded GTO came the following year and it was physically bigger. The total list price was right at 3000 bucks. At that price I could buy a fleet of them today-- cant as we all are victims of inflation. With the weight up front the brakes would fade easily and at times was a little scary. It was fun. Charlie aka cutnout

I convinced myself at a young age that parts would not be available if the company failed. With that youthful knowledge I bought a 64 GTO. That's a true story. Charlie aka cutnout
    Please tell me about your 64 GTO - an all-time favorite of mine!!

    John I remember you and the club members. Two folks lent us chairs as my trunk was full. Others joined us for lunch. A good group of nice folks. I had good advice about driving over the mountain and I did. Beautiful country and I repeat its a great show. By the way one saw the Florida tag and ask if we trailed the car. "if you see my car on a traitor its stolen" I don't want it if I cant drive it. Thank you and the club for the comradery. Charlie aka cutnout

    The Colorado Corvette Club sponsors the Grand Lake car show. I meet Charlie there a few years ago on his trip back from Washington to Florida.
