Avanti torque boxes


Your original Avanti torque boxes were attached to the body before the body was mounted to the chassis. Thus, the body must be removed in order to properly replace a rusted-out torque box with an original type. Likewise, areas of the fiberglass body may have to be cut out in order to provide access during various stages of installation. You might imagine that both scenarios would be both costly and time consuming, and that such an installation is generally within the capacity of only those with the stoutest of hearts.

We have developed a product that can be installed more easily than an original type of torque box. Our product is made in five main pieces per side. All become a unit when installed. A minimum of welding is required. Our product can be installed without disturbing the finish of a newly-painted Avanti.

We have now developed special tooling that has considerably upgraded our original product. The outer rail is now produced in steel that is heavier than the original. Our special Classic Enterprises internal stiffener rail has been added or extra strength and body support. All  main components are properly die formed in properly gauged steel.

Special attention has been paid to improved fit, ease of installation, and maintenance of original appearance.

Torque boxes can be ordered in standard or stainless steel. Installation does not require specialized skills or tools. Complete installation instructions are included and are available upon request. If you run into a snag during installation, give us a call, it's all part of our customer service! Note also that we offer a complete 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not completely satisfied with our product. Give us a call for further details.

"63-82" Avanti and Avanti II Quick Steering Arms

We have an amazing new product for you!!   Steering rates that were built into your Studebaker in the '50's and '60's and into Avantis until the early '80's  were notoriously and boringly slow because of design tradition and general control resistance of original type bias ply tires.  Our quick steering arms along with your updated radial tires will make an impressive improvement to the handling qualities of your Stude or Avanti.  You will immediately notice a quicker steering response, better road feel, and a sharper turning radius.  Your Stude will handle more like a modern car guaranteed!  The quick steering arms are easily installed in a few hours and will fit any Stude or Avanti between the years of 1951-1982.  *Note that the quick steering arms are intended for use on all types of Studebakers with power steering.
