'78 Avanti II Questions -- rear axle, steering column

Hi, got a line on a '78 Avanti II that is being parted out. Couple of questions, since I haven't gotten any pics of it:

1) Did the Avanti still have standard Studebaker-style traction bars in '78? Seller says it's a Dana 44 with 3.73:1 ratio, but guy says it doesn't have posi/twin traction which surprised me.

2) Did the '78 Avanti still use the 'original' Studebaker-style steering column & steering wheel, or was it a GM or AMC tilt column with integral ignition switch?

Thanks for any help folks!

In '78, the rear axle/suspension was still the Studebaker configuration.  The Twin Traction  was not standard.  The steering column is the AMC tilt type with the ignition switch in the column.
