Parts from 345 35 to 75 Argosy 26

I have a chance to pick up an early 80's 345...for free. Will any of the parts fit my 75 Argosy 26? Like windshield or windows? I don't need anything right now but a cracked windshield would cost a bunch to replace.

I'm 99% sure that yes everything will fit, including the drivers and passenger side windows, however I strongly urge you to have a professional automotive glass guy come out to do the removal as keeping the gasket would be a bonus.

Are you parting the 345 out by chance? If so PM me for a couple things that I'd want to get off of it.

Cheers
Tony

Hi Tony
If I get it I will let you know. Its a bit of a challenge since Harold wants it gone but wifie thinks its worth big bucks. Its been sitting for over 10 years and has some damage from Harold's poor driving. Keep your fingers crossed and yes I will part it out. Thanks.

Al.

I've been down this exact same road, I dismantled a 345 several years ago

As others have mentioned all of the windows will fit your 75. However there are differences between the side windows from your 75 compared to the 345. The glass is the same but the frames and handles are different. I also agree that unless you're real comfortable handling those large windshields I would hire someone to remove them for you.

My 74 Argosy has a fair number of 345 parts installed. I even went so far as to change the doghouse opening cover over to the 345 cover because I liked it better.

Best way to sell the excess parts is to place an ad in the Classifieds. I think one mistake I made when dismantling and selling off the various excess parts was to underestimate just what parts others might be interested in. I still get requests for things that I tossed because I was sure no one would want. If you have the ability to store parts by all means do so. You just might be surprised that someday you could just make someone's day

If you have questions on how to dismantled and what to expect feel free to PM me.

Brad

I hope Harold's "wifie" gets her way and with some big bucks for it, then maybe someone with the right skills can bring it back together or if too bodily damaged have a suitable yard to part it out properly for future restores..and not to send these to a scrap metal dealer. Had enthusiastically followed a posting once as one appeared to be being rescued only to find out that it was being nackered, I'v never been the same since

I guess I understand the "no buying and selling in a thread' as the backwards and forwards that goes along with chasing parts could clutter a specific thread. However, there is a need for Forum Members to be able to list and/or find parts for our aging Classic motorhomes. Craigs list is OK but why does not the forum have a "Marketplace for Classic Motorhome Parts" as an extension of Classified Parts and Appliances for example. Currently, as far as I can tell, I have to comb through hundreds of unrelated parts when a simple year, model, interior/exterior, part key word search would be a terrific solution.
The search capability of the Forum needs to be seriously updated and a powerful search capability for parts would, I'm sure attract more Members (i.e. ad viewing eyes)

So please excuse my ignorance off Forums.
I hope I dont need for anymore parts ever again for my Classic Motorhome, but somehow I think I will, but what? Just don't know till the event happens! But listing or requesting on a thread that keeps current by yearly eg. 2017 that anyone can check for parts or offer parts, or know off parts all unofficially and not handled in a so called classified style, this way a running history can be managed by the thread itself and as I have gone into the forums section for Classic Motorhome owners I think I can send a note directly to the individual regarding haggling and not upset Maggie I feel that as these classic vehicles get older and dwinderling in number a loose tracking system should work well.
Duno if I have said anything but I have tried
