And a few exterior pictures. Needs a little cleanup and paint, perhaps a tire and a vacuum job..

What a great find. Looks wonderful for a 63. Actually, looks good for an 83.

Congrats!

Are you going to shine it up as great as the one you brought to San Clemente?

Oh thanks! It was re-upholsterd professionally, and it has a new axle, new rear floor section and a near new refrigerator.

I have not decided yet. The metal is dull, and has some corrosion, but no clear coat. I will have to wash it, it had been sitting in a dusty storage yard for several years. Once there's a little mor room at Area 63, i will bring it in and give it a bath and once-over with the pressure washer.

What a great looking GT. The body looks perfect and the interior is very well maintained. The new fridge fits in perfectly. What is the blue plaque just behind the door?

With a polish job and aluminum tanks that trailer will turn a lot of heads. I've seen some custom covers for the spare tire that would be perfect also.

It's the serial number plate.

My plan so far is just tires, a little paint on the tongue and bumper, repairing the old dump valve, and cleanup.

btw. does anyone have a clue if how, and why the old cast metal dump valve comes apart? The trailer is not close by, I'd like to go prepared when I go to fix it..

Hi Richard: Got any leads on the custom spare tire covers?
