Someone during the life of this trailer has lived in it and trashed a lot of it. Floor appears to be in pretty good condition from a very limited examination. Tires are shot, one ven in roof is gone and has been exposed to elements. What do you think, is it worth fixing if I could purchase for $1000.00 or less?

8. "one ven(t) in roof is gone"
IMO, if you were to deduct $75-$100 for each of the CON items above, maybe it'd be worth
that. Each of those items will cost you at least
$75-$100 to fix. BTW, I seriously doubt you will find the floor is in "pretty good condition" once you get into it with a door & roof vent missing -not in place doing their jobs, keeping moisture out.
'63-64 Safari's are not that hard to come by...and in better condition. If it were a rare model or had unique history, maybe it would be worth it, but unless you have lots of emotional attachemnt to that particular trailer...keep on looking.
