1964 Overlander

First post on here. Very new to the airstream world.. I am potentially going to look at a gutted out 64 overlander this weekend and was wondering what in particular I should be looking at to decide whether or not to get it. Any known defects with this particular year? Any info would be appreciated!

any 60's Airstream can have floor rot from leaks & chassis rust from them as well.
It would be good to look carefully for signs of this.. Gutted makes it easier to see the floor, but the chassis will be hidden . Unless the belly pan is open somewhere.

Be aware of the height of the rear wheel wells over the tires. Too little tire showing, can be a clue to worn out axles.
