New member and first post. Picked up this Avanti recently and have started the up closer inspection of what it needs and what is wrong. It needs alot and just about everything is not working. The story is it spent most of its existence in Ohio and may have last run in 1974 or 75. It certainly sat for a very very long time judging from the condition of the interior and exterior. First task will be to solve all the mechanical problems. (tom c).
