Well, I finally got to look at the 1964
safari in person. It was pretty trashed inside. The outside looked to be pretty straight, and i think all the doors were there. It was parked next to a thick bunch of Bamboo, and it was hard to get a good look at the back and curbside of it. There was a large patch pop-rivited to the front and streetside corner.
The inside was gutted except for part of the kitchen and bathroom. What was left was pretty weatherbeaten. The walls had been painted white (shouldn't '64 be zolotone?), and then someone had started painting gloss black. Most of the windows were either broken, or had been replaced with frosted 'bathroom' style glass.
The floor was mostly completely covered with 1/4 plywood, and a layer of outdoor carpet. What I could see of the original floor didn't look good.
I wanted a project to build a custom interior on, just to play around with woodworking and have some fun this winter, but I think the rotten floor is what really scared me away. It just looked like too much work to do the floor and the interior. I've been following the floor replacement threads and that doesn't look like much fun. Is there anyway to do a floor replacement without pulling off the shell?
I feel sorry for it though. I know the guy's been trying to get rid of it for a while. I hate to see an AS just rotting away waiting for someone to come give it life again. I can't imagine who'd want to take on a project of that magnitude, but I have a feeling he'd let it go for a song to anyone who did.
