Question NEED information re retrofit for '59 Norcold

Hi everybody,
I need to retrofit my 59 Norcold fridge with newer guts and controls.

I've been through RJ's resource list (thanks, RJ) and found Stu at Have any of you done business with him?

He's in Pennsylvania and I'm in BC, Canada, so the freight costs would be really expensive.
If anyone has done something similar with their vintage fridge I'd appreciate whatever information you might have about getting it redone.

Many thanks.

59 Traveler

I saw a trailer that the owner had mounted the older style Marvel door to a modern fridge in order to maintain the original look. Maybe you could do something similar
