1964 Avanti Duo-Cento R5 - 638HP



The R-5 was a one-off experimental custom version of the Studebaker V8 developed by Andy Granatelli. With Bendix aircraft fuel injection as used on the Novi Indy car and a Paxton supercharger mounted to each cylinder bank, it produced 638 horsepower (476 kW) on the Paxton dynamometer. The R-5 was mounted in Granatelli's special Avanti "Due Cento" (200 in Italian), with which he planned to break 200 miles per hour. Unfortunately, Granatelli could not get enough traction during his Bonneville run, achieving a top speed of 196.62 miles per hour (316.43 km/h). The R5 never officially competed again.



This engine is a 1963 304ci Avanti engine. This is an R5 clone. (missing the mechanical fuel injection).

1964 Studebaker Challenger Race Car





Quote:
This was the entry level model of the newly faced lifted line of 1964 Studebakers Still having its rubber floor mat and the Spartan use of chrome trim, this was the ideal candidate for a performance Studebaker.

The power train consisted of the same Studebaker 289 cubic-inch V8, with Paxton Supercharger, that powered various models of Studebakers to land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1964. The transmission was a Borg Warner T-10 four-speed with a Dana 44 posi-traction axle, (Twin-Traction by Studebaker).

The suspension and brakes have been enhanced to accommodate the hard use of road racing. The challenger has performed trouble-free many times at Road Atlanta, competing in the Walter Mitty Challenge Series. It has been observed with a top speed of 135 MPH.

Did you know . . .

In 1966, California mandated "advanced" Emissions Control one year before it was USA wide. So original 1966 CA GM cars should have the smog pump (A.I.R.) on them. These three cars are original CA cars:

1966 Buick GS Hardtop 401/325HP




1966 Chevelle SS396/325HP




1966 L36 390 HP 427 Corvette

Who Sold The Most Hemi Cars (66 to 71) - Plymouth or Dodge?

1966: Plymouth = 1521 . . . . Dodge = 1210

1967: Plymouth = 778 . . . . . Dodge = 402

1968: Plymouth = 1524 . . . . Dodge = 625

1969: Plymouth = 1049 . . . . Dodge = 862

1970: Plymouth = 1122 . . . . Dodge = 564

1971: Plymouth = 218 . . . . . Dodge = 173

TOTALS:

Plymouth = 6,212

Dodge = 3,835

NOTE: there are a few sources for Hemi car production numbers . . . none of them show the same numbers. So the numbers could be off depending on the sources I used.

Two Ads for the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe



I have never seen that photo before



A photo very much like this one (different angle) was used for the 1970 Sales brochure:

In magazines, the caption to the photo was; "other cars wish we would keep it this way"

1971 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Coupe





That isn't a stock 71 Chevelle SS. The front bumper is body colored and the rally strips are on the bumper.

1964 Pontiac X-400 Grand Prix Show Car



For those of you not familiar with the X-400s, they were a series of Pontiac convertibles customized by GM Styling for show use. New models appeared in 1959, 1960, 1962, 1963, and 1964. The first two were Catalina-length Bonnevilles and the latter versions were Grand Prix convertibles-none of which were available from the factory.

The X-400s represented the outer limits of Pontiac-style, luxury, and performance, with supercharged Pontiac V-8s, custom interiors, and enough one-of-a-kind features to impress even the jaded enthusiasts of today. They boasted such high-tech goodies as a rain-sensing, automatically operating convertible top, driver-operated exhaust cutouts, and full gauges, right down to custom but stock-appearing 160-mph speedometers.

1960 Pontiac X-400 Show car





A Latham-supercharged 389-cu.in. V-8 put plenty of go behind the X-400's show. The Latham blower used a high-speed axial rotor to create boost, and required frequent greasing.
