Congrats and welcome to the forums.

First, use the "Search" function of the forums. That will generally tell all.

Also, go to Vintageairstream.com . Many of your restoration and pricing sources can be found there.

Also, since I have a '66 we have many of the same issues and parts questions. Feel free to let me know. Also, we're not far from each other.

John

Sorry about my first post. It is hard not to think that a coach is worth big bucks.

Value is hard to nail down. The Vintageairstream sight is a good place to start. Condition has a lot to due with value. Also, where you are will have some impact on value.

Manuals still can be purchased through Secretarial Services. (937) 492-8885
A manual will run you some where around $40.00 shipped to your house. I like the "reproduction" manual better than the original one I found later. The reproduction one is bigger and easier to read. The manual will answer a lot of your questions and give you a few more.

Hope this helped better

I didn't know that I wanted a 1967. It found me. Keep your eyes open, you will find what you want in time.
