Looks like great condition already. What are you plans for her?

I'm also looking for someone local to get the air conditioning (and some other electrical work) sorted too. I use mine as a home office (when I'm not traveling) and realize without AC I won't be able to keep that up much longer.

My 65 Caravel.

I have a 65 Caravel that I have owned for about 20 years, mine was in about the same condition as yours. The restoration took very little. I am sure you will love the little guy once you are using it.

I am wondering if anyone near Austin would be wiling to meet up and walk me through my trailer. I can barter beer or tacos for one's time, of course!
Conversely, I can probably come up with a reason to make the drive up as far as North DFW area, or down to Houston or San Antonio.

Just wondering if anyone out there would enjoy taking a "newbie" under their wing...

Thanks y'all!

I don't pull the Caravel with the MG but it makes a cute pic.

Hi, I too have a '65 Caravel, here in San Antonio. She looks beautiful. I frequent Austin from time to time, I have many friends there and used to live there years ago, we are actually contemplating moving back there this year. At some point I'd be happy to see yours.
