So a friend sends me a link to a local on-line only auction. I ended up winning all the lots I bid on. In it was a 75 Avion that is missing the dash and steering column but is in nice shape inside. Rear twin DAVO's...never seen that before and side dry bath with a shower door that looks to be about 14" wide...LOL. Original paint but new windshields. The deceased owner was named Turner and attended the GMCMI rally in Niagra Falls back in 94. His son said he drove it all over the country before he pulled it in his barn for a total restoration. So it was stored inside until the auction company pulled it out this month. The coach mechanicals are in unknown condition. The motor has chrome valve covers and looks to have been taken care of.

I also won a unused rebuilt tranny that was built by AAMCO in 94 and still has the paper AAMCO tag. I also got a spare complete 455 with all accessories but unknown condition although the motor does turn over and is clean. I didn't think to see if it has a Toronado oil pan.

I BELIEVE the steering column and dash is in a pile that is in the corner and comes with the coach. Also got about 5 sets of aftermarket seats (3rd row seats with armrests)as well as the original seats. Oh and a BRAND new set of 6 Alcoa wheels with BRAND new Michelin tires dated 2001 (!!!) I believe the wheels/tires are spoken for. If not I'll post them.

A good day. Now to get everything home and see what all is there. The coach is going to have to come home on a flatbed. I know there is also a bunch of upholstery material and some other stuff like a Ragusa pan for the tranny.
