CRUSTY bargman L66 looking for good home.

I have a little cabin i am restoring, my parents purchased it when i was a young kid.. The cabin originally had a aluminum canned ham type trailer attatched to the side.. My folks eventually scrapped it and it went to the great trailerpark in the sky.

Recently my parents gifted me the property and in my clearing out of the junk in the property i found the door to the camper that had been buried in the dirt for 20+ years. The handle was still attached, and after a little spritz with the hose it works well, no broken parts, lock works, tumbler is in good shape as it is brass, of course no keys, but you can probably get that rekeyed

Id like to give it to someone who is working on restoring a vintage Airstream, as i know these are scarce as hens teeth. paying for shipping would be nice gesture, will probably send it flat rate USPS box.

You have to need it however, I'm not giving it away so someone can resell it.. so show me why you need it..

Its crusty as hell, i touched it up with my dremel as you can see in the photos, and it cleaned up ,but will probably need to be rechromed to be like new. I quit while i was ahead because i am not a pro..

That's a sweet gesture. Thanks on behalf of all L-66 lockset owners.

By some strange twist of fate, I was walking around near my cabin and a gentleman had one of those old canned ham trailers, he passed away and sometime recently the vultures snuck in and stripped all of the aluminum off of the outside. However..

They tossed the door into the mud and lo and behold .. another bargman L66!

It appears to work fine, its less pitted than the other but has some baby blue paint on it. looks as if its been scraped on the ground a little but its actually in a bit better shape than the other..

Anyone in need?

good home for Bargman lock

I need the lock big time! Please email me (or PM if you prefer) and let me know the easiest way for me to pay for the shipping (closest shipper to you, I guess) and we can make it happen pronto!

Ok looks like we have a taker.. just take a while for me to ship it as I am in canada.

EDIT: made me sad to see this camper all torn up (it was basically a workshop/shed) I smiled when i realized the lock was still there, was probably worth more than the aluminum.. I dont have it right here as its at work. I THINK.. it has the screws but the strike plate was missing.. so probably perfect for you egg. I will take a picture before i send it.
