May be bringing this home...Thoughts?

This may be the 2nd one to follow me home...what do you think? Any thoughts on the crease/dent above the left wheel? How difficult to repalce the front window? original or aftermarket glass?











Well...what would YOU pay for this? Thanks all!

The front window is the easy part (stock is 3/32nd inch glass... I used tempered 1/8th without an issue on my 63.. very similiar front glass). That crease is just a wrinkle... it'll go away when you replace all the wood in the rear... and maybe repair an outrigger or two... can you say potiential shell off / on repair? All that mold inside... the cabinets will need to be stripped, refinished. Looks complete though?

Need to fabricate a new rear trunk door (shouldn't be too hard.. not that I could though...)... all those "eyebrows" over the windows are not stock.... nor are the hidious rear lights.. yuk!

Clearcoat looks good!
Take'r home!
What do YOU want to pay? She's talking to you...
'64 I think... Safari? Nice floor plan. How's the bathroom?

What I see with a "quick look"
Front glass and clips
Rear compartment cover missing
Needs new tires, possibly new wheels
Needs new axle, from the amount of tire visible
Those funky-looking taillights need to be replaced ASAP
It needs all new cushions and upholstery
It's Filthy, with a capital "F"
I wouldn't worry about the ripple over the left wheel, as such
How are the floors? The appliances? The plumbing?
Not knowing theses things, I would "lowball", depending on condition of those items.

Ah, yes...it is FILTHY...and the plan is to gut it and replace the floor...stripping the cabinets would be the easy part! The bathroom looks like the rest of it...dirty...
Rear trunk door is included..just not mounted...The tail lights might not be on there much more than to get it hom! Its a 67 Safari...looks to be complete...all for the (what i think is low) low price of $600....

Yup, I think lowball price is between $500 and $1000. We paid about that for our Argosy, then proceeded to remove the roof air conditioner, and tried our best to fill the inside of the trailer with dollar bills through the hole.

Grab it for that price!

The "dent" above the axle roadside may indicate some frame damage.

It definitely looks "fixable." The interior does need a lot of work, but that's just a question of time and money, like most things.

My only real concern would be that the roadside over-wheel "dish" could indicate bad frame problems. If you're planning a full-off resto, that could be realtively easily fixed. If not, you might wind up doing it even if not planned. So, depending upon your predilections, I'd try to assess frame condition.

Price sure sounds right to me.

A word about potential frame issues...

I don't know if you've been following our little thread about our Sovereign, but it has ended up needing extensive frame work, after looking closely at all areas of the frame (except the exact spot the problem was). Best advice is to remove the belly pan, at least so you can view the entire length of the frame, so you don't get a surprise.

Definitely will need a new axle. You can replace the tail lights easy enough. Get rid of the eyebrows over the windows. You can reseal the windows and put new gaskets on for hardly any cost. Glass for the front window. Gut the interior and refinish.

I agree with others...either get the belly pan off or gut the interior and go in from the floor side to check out the frame. $600 is worth it.

The eyebrows over the windows might have been an attempt to seal the glass bead tracks that so often leak on the 66-68 windows. These tracks are the only place that silicone is to be used on the Airstream trailer.
