In the dog house

Early 1960's, 1962 to be exact!

Late yesterday afternoon while backing our 1991 Lincoln Mark VII into our garage so it can straddle space between the two garage doors, I backed in at too much of an angle and rolled too far back, then feeling a clunk. I got out only to my horror found the right rear bumper corner had connected and dented our perfectly working 1962 Dometic refrigerator's door we were going to use in "Yeagers" Aound the World Overlander we are restoring. I'm not too popular right now.
So, here's the big question. Does anyone have a vintage '62 large Dometic frig, that doesn't work, hasn't worked and is laying around, but has a nice door, let me know. Chris already had all the woodwork finished and complete to begin interior install, except now has to redo the frig cabinetry for 5 year old two door non vintage Dometic we picked up today. Bummer, no way to make it look the era of 1962. My backing fault has contributed to more unnecessary unwanted carpentry. Gonna stop by Timeless Travel tomorrow.

Two numbers I find on the refrigerator is IMC 244 on a plate on back of the flue, and on the side of flue in bold black figures, 5060. Don't if it's an MC 244 or M 50

I have an MB 52 C out of our 1970 project. If any part of it is useful, you are welcome to it.

Thanks for the offer "Aviator", I appreciate you reading my plight. I need a porcelain coated door.Stopped at Timeless Travel, Brett was more than gracious trying to find something that would fit, but the 'bones" in their used pile of goodies were too new, circa late 60's and beyond.There was also an ad on this forum in classifieds advertizing all interior out of a 1962 Overlander, but the frig is sold I found out this afternoon. I, Did see a 1958 Flying Cloud, whales tail, that had been stretched from 22 ft to 34ft, yes 34 ft Brett said.. Wow, and Timeless Travel said its the only one.

The door on mine is definitely not porcelain, so not what you are looking for. If I come across anything over here in GA, I will send you a PM.

Jim: When I bought my 1958 Caravanner I did so because it had almost no cut-ins in the cab skin. In particular no lower fresh air input grate for a frig next to the entry door. Or the roof vent for frig exhaust. But it did have what appeared to be an old gas frig that fit nicely in the frig cabinet to the left of the door. What had been done was a large hole in the side panel at the floor behind the frig. Then to vent it, a large hole in the cabinet wall high up let out combustion gasses and hot fumes. YES, thus venting the CO gasses I-N-S-I-D-E. Am not going to do all the skin cut-ins to install the propane frig properly. Bought a 3.4 cu ft double door G E 110 volt and may not even install it as modified ice chest will do me fine. You are welcome to the frig FREE and FOB just south of Omaha.

Yes, that's the way they did it.hard to believe manufacturers were allowed vent combusted LP to the interior. However some were vented between the inner and outer trailer skin with exhaust exiting thru a small eyebrow vent above the awning track. Looking forward to your photos. Your town isn't that far. .-))

How about fixing the existing door? If it's not dented too badly, an auto body shop might be able to crink it back like new....
