Determining my Avion's age

Post by dabirdguy » Thu Aug 10, 2017 4:21 pm

Hi,
My Avion came without title.
How do I determine what year it was built?

hey there and welcome...

Some pictures would be of big help to narrow it down.
Can you fin a serial number?
Does it have segmented end caps?

A little more info please,
Ian

And it has one of those MHMA TCA tags on it.
I will get some pics posted as soon as I can get a webpage together to host them.
Thanks for any help!

Based on the model it was built somewhere between 1960 and 1965.
The serial number you gave is really big, they weren't that big back then (I don't believe) but lets see: 240210... the "24" could refer to the length, so maybe it was the 210th one made? Although I am totally guessing.

The "H" stands for Holiday.

you can post images here, they just have to be tiny.

As you can see it is in very rough shape. The last license plate was from 1983.
To get a bonded title in Illinois I need to get it appraised and then file a bond.
Having the correct year will be a help.
the state has no record of it (too old!)

Sorry about the sideways pics. My viewer auto corrects for it aand until they are used they all show right way up when I select them.
