OIL FILTER??

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Avanti owners. What have you guys been using for a oil filter for a 1964 289 R1?

Right now I have a Purolator L30005 that came with the car.

 

Thanks,

Steve

I use Car Quest, spin on filter, # 85049 on my R2. Also I use ZDDP additive with the oil change.

I've been using STP brand, # S-25 for the last several oil changes.

It's the same oil filter as most 1960's GM cars other than Chevrolet.  I used to own a '64 Pontiac that used the same oil filter.  I believe the Purolator number was PER 5 but after so many years the numbering system could have changed.

I just bought 2 NOS Studebaker / Packard oil filters when we attended the LAST get-together meet in York, PA.

I haven't figured out when & if I'm ever going to install one on old #5255 or not ....But - I got 'em just the same!!

avantifred, I would not install those NOS filters. Who knows what condition the filter media is in after all these years. You don't need to have your engine ruined by a failing filter plugging up oil passages with filter media that has come apart. Best to use them for garage art and use new filters in your engine.

Car Quest # 85049 and NAPA Gold #1049 are both made by WIX and are identical in all respects except for the label on the can.   It is getting harder to find the NAPA Gold filter.
