Not to pick nits, but according to my Johnson literature, there was the
"Thunderbolt" amplifier and the "6N2 Thunderbolt" amplifier, as well as
the pictured "Courier" and the "Kilowatt" amplifier (which many hams
call the "Desk Kilowatt" but Johnson didn't). Of course they were all
"Vikings" as EFJ used that brand name across the entire transmitter and
station accessory lines.
As for the Avenger, what's that sitting to the left of the
walkie-talkies in photo 10? Looks like the rare and beautiful Avenger
to me! According to what I've read, only about 50 were built and most
kept by EFJ employees, which is probably why this one survives.
I'm happy to see a "reasonably complete" display like this, in contrast
for example to the Leo Meyerson collection which was dumped by the
Western Heritage Museum when someone decided it wasn't worth keeping on
