Craigslist Find: Indiana Governor's 1969 Overlander

Supposedly used by Indiana's Governor, who at that time was Edgar Whitcomb. Might be a stash of graft $$ hidden somewhere....

I guess the supposed ownership by the government is what makes it "worth" 2x what I'd consider just from the photos? Dorm fridge, sagged axles, crud around many seams. The clearcoat appears quite good for its age, but that may just be due to the fact that I'm used to seeing trailers blasted by the Texas sun.

Perhaps if they can document the governor connection, someone might pay extra for "collectibility".

I agree that it is somewhat overpriced for what I see in the photographs. I might be willing to pay a premium if it were owned by Elvis or Frank Sinatra. Being owned by the Governor of Indiana of 40 years ago, not so much.

There are currently two Airstreams sitting on our lot, waiting for work. Both have the state seal of North Carolina on them. That does not mean any governor of North Carolina ever owned them.
