1977 Airstream Argosy 20 20 - Arizona

Title: 1977 Airstream Argosy 20 20 - Arizona
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

VERY RARE 1977 Airstream Argosy 20 footer! 454 V-8 with turbo 400 automatic, built on the P30 Chassis. Please CALL and I can direct you to a site with 24 FULL SIZE PICTURES (I can't include a link here), no emails, too many scams. Just had my mechanic go through it, runs and drives well, did about $1500 worth of new brakes, lines, fluids, filters, etc to be able to drive locally. My plan was to strip and polish, redo the interior, all new/modern finishes and appliances, Alcoa wheels, etc. If you're looking at this, you've probably seen a few of my other 20's over the years, most folks have seen pictures online of them, it pains me to sell this one as-is because I know how amazing the finished product will be. I'm just way too wrapped up in real estate projects to do this one right now. This is a great unit because it's so complete, solid, and has the best motor/trans combo. There isn't much to say, she's a project, pictures represent it very well. The body is aluminum, with steel end-caps, so the dent on the rear is on steel and an easy fix (I can send you pictures of my last polished unit if you're curious) we painted the end caps dark gray on that one, I also painted one a metallic silver and it looked great as well, less maintenance and polishing too if you decide to go that route. I will warn you though, if you don't like attention, this is not the rig for you- people go crazy for these and are constantly stopping to ask questions, take pictures etc. Just allow extra time, even if you're only going to the gas station. These 20's have too much cool factor, they're a lot of fun.

I have NOT gone through systems inside, only had my mechanic go through it and get it running/driving/stopping well. I wouldn't use anything currently in it anyhow, so I didn't care if it was functional. Tires are old but hold air, it runs fine in 100* AZ traffic, happy to give you my mechanic's number if you'd like his opinion on anything. Before I get the emails and calls... NO, I would NOT try driving it across the country- or even the state. It would need tires at the very least, and probably more belts, hoses, etc. Driving locally is no problem, even gets up to speed on the highway, I can send a video if you'd like. Other than the dent in the rear end cap, the body is in amazing condition and is certainly a great candidate for polishing. Please look at all of the pictures, they describe it far better than I can, let me know if you need any other specific pictures or info. I don't do any shipping myself, but I can give you a couple of names/numbers of great shippers that I have used, who are reliable and very reasonable if you want to get a price from them. Clean/clear AZ title, mileage says "actual" on the title, but I have no way of knowing. Previous owner stated that he had the transmission rebuilt, runs and shifts smoothly and my mechanic said he can tell it had been worked on, but I have no paperwork on it. Again, it runs, drives, stops and shifts very well. Please call for info.
