1974 Airstream Motorhome
For those who delight in resurrecting the near dead, you may be interested in this. I came upon a 1974 Airstream motorhome for sale in Bushnell FL. I looked it over for a friend, but it was too much of an undertaking for him (it would require driving this back to Canada). The exterior was painted over like an Argosy, but the cast Airstream logos are on it. It has a 454 Chev engine, which I heard started, as well as the generator. The seller told me everything runs, but it is in rough shape. He said he was asking $3,000 - however, I would assume he would take less, probably much less. The interior layout is nice, but it is somewhat rough.
It seems to me that it would require totally gutting the interior, part of the floor under the sink may be soft from a plumbing leak. The running gear will require thoroughly checking out the engine and tranny. The rubber will have to be replaced (tires have a date code of 4502, meaning that they are over 6 years old).
The exterior would need to be stripped of the paint, and there are some of the lower, fiberglass, that needs to be fixed. The metal is mostly good, except near the wheel wells, where there is some dented metal.
For anyone interested,the seller's name is TOM, and his telno is 352-793-5657
