Is there any hope for me to restore all that stuff?
Where there's a will, there's a way! The plumbing layout in early Airstream trailers is quite simple.
I would draw a floor plan with all the fixtures, and than make a layout for fresh water, city water, hot water, toilet, shower, and tanks etc.
You can use pex for all the water lines, which is very easy to work with. The trailer most likely only had a black and fresh tank, no grey tank. If you want to add a small grey tank, you will have to do some research on how to fit it under the floor.
I just re-plumbed a 63 Overlander, and must say that it was one of the easier jobs, even though I am a lousy plumber.
