Need sources for parts for a '75 Argosy

We are excited about our recent purchase of a 1975 Argosy Airstream 26' motorhome. The motorhome is equipped with the great 454 engine. We are working with it as a part of a show that will be highlighting the restoration, renovation and subsequent lifestyle of the "Airstreamer!" We are working with a mechanic in Florida who is having trouble finding parts for the mechanical restoration. The parts he really needs are all the belts and hoses, parts for the brake system, coolant system, etc. He said that the air intake and the cooling system were modified and I am not sure whether he meant that was done by Airstream or by someone after market. We really would like (and need) assistance finding sources for these parts and any information on that year make and model of Argosy Airstream?? Can anyone help us? We would so appreciate the input. We can't wait to get it on the road and meet some of our fellow "Airstreamers"! Thanks, Robert

Welcome Arinikki,

A good starting point is this thread that list current part numbers and sources for most mechanical parts.

There is a huge knowledge base in the forum. But you may want to move the thread to the motorhome forum as that where most of the 'other inmates' lurk.

For no-longer available parts several members have dismantled donors (I bought a 28' donor, as a parts vehicle for the rebuild of my 20') and if there is something specific you need simply ask.

The original Argosy chassis was a Chev P30 and was not changed by Airstream much if at all. Belts, hoses, carb parts, fuel system, manifolds, water pump, AC system ignition system, cruse control and cooling system were all standard P 30 stuff.

Unfortunately, if some previous owner modified the systems, there is not a whole lot we can do on the forum to help you out. Anything could have been done and only guessing on our part would be what you would here from forum members.

If you want to restore it to original though, it is straight Chev P 30 chassis stuff from 1975.
