The interior is original except for the fridge, but it is VERY dirty. There were 2 mouse nests, but I was sure not to show my wife, Laurie, the BIG one. Nasty. I hope she has faith in my ability to make this thing habitable!

HA! Those two pics are classic, wife's ("uh huh....") look, and that of pure glee in your daughter's. Loved them! My wife had a good chuckle too.

As a suggestion, flower's and a gift certificate for her to go shopping helps alot!
Have fun! I really like those 50's triange cutout's over the wheel wells too.

Need a refrigerator?

I have a Dometic available from my 62'. Mid size. Very clean inside. Serviced and makes ice. I replaced it for smaller unit. Let me know if you need a replacement.

John, I found that exact same spice yesterday while installing elevator bolts. I think that splice was done at the factory. I was going to ask why and whay today.

Not for the squeemish

Thank God it's winter, as I would hate to have to dig this baby out on a day when it's 90 degrees and humid. There was one other small nest in a kitchen drawer, but this monster was amazing. I had to take pictures. I hope I can bleach the wood clean underneath, otherwise it's coming out.

The trailers and cars from that era were wired with a separate line for the brake lights and turn signals. Now those lines are combined into one. It made it easy for someone to wire the break lights to the trailer brakes. Just another item to put on your restoration list.
