I was able to acquire a 1958 Glasspar Avalon powered by a 1958 Mercury Mark 78 "dock-buster" today.
rescued from its forgotten parking place of 40 years, as the area is being logged.
About the only thing of value left of the old Mark 78 was a dent free cowl wrap, and the little aluminum 'spoon shaped' cover for the rewind retaining nut.,...And the bronze propeller (15p)
The Avalon has a real nice glass windshield, with cast aluminum frameworks. The hull also has almost all the original cast aluminum pieces at the bow, and transom. It even has a set of original front seat floor brackets, and a very early Ride-Guide steering system.
I plan on keeping the aluminum pieces & steering system protected, and available to any interested parties restoring an Avalon, but I plan on cutting up the hull, and disposing of it.
Send a PM if interested in any of these goodies.
