Its going to get gutted...redo the floor...planning on keeping the existing floor pan...Wiring was done by someone with less than necessary electrical skills...I didnt know that these use aluminum wiring internally...Right now its sitting out wiht the door open...theres some evidence of mice nestings, so im letting the barn cats roam it for the night and maybe some extermination...

Nice! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it. If I heard correctly, aluminum wire was used because copper was being diverted for use in the war effort.

That would have been Vietnam...
If you're going to gut it, it would be a really good idea to replace that aluminum wiring with copper.
