Starting The Job

We just got the 64 Overlander last week.

These are photos of what she looked like when we got her.

Am pulling the interior completely out and then hoping I don't have to replace floor....

Wiring needs completely redone.
Need new breaker panel, converter, battery...
Moving kitchen down next to restroom
Adding bedroom up front
All new flooring
Resurfacing the walls
New water tanks
New water pump

Going to try to keep as much of the original cabinetry as possible. Have some veneer loss on a couple doors but have refinished some antique furniture purposely leaving the damage there and it adds character to it. Want to see hot it will look on these doors.

Actually planning on staining the woodwork a color called 'Cabernet', and putting flooring in that will complement it.

Not sure on wall color yet. We are still mulling that one over.

Decided to keep a log of everything on here. I read a lot of the other members threads and saw it helped keep them motivated. I need to stay motivated...or the wife will think this is 'another one of my projects' that never gets completed!


Love the forum.

The outside looks straight in that photo, it really doesn't matter too much how the inside looks if it's coming out anyway.
Congratulations on your A/S. It sounds as if you've been reading and doing your homework. Good luck with it!
Dave

Hate to tell you, but you do not have a 64.

A 1967, yes.

Gosh that Andy! He hits it right on the nail. More pics of the '67 - 67Overlander - one file on that webpage + 6 other '67s in the folders at upper left. Here's the '64. So where are we getting these webpages? The master list is at Vintage Airstream Photo Archives.

NWOverlander, we're glad to have you contributing (pictures!! ) at AIR Forums. If you post your VIN we can establish firmly that this is as Andy says -- and I can tell you he didn't have to refer to the above webpages.

Wondering

Looking at the pics, from the links above to 67's, none of them have the same layout as mine as far as the kitchen and restroom.

Are they all just a different floor plan?

Floor plans can vary and PO's do make changes.

The 67 Overlander came in several flavors.
You could have twin beds or the double bed,
Standard trim or International,
Ohio built or California.

really a newby

i really am a newby then. ;-)

It is the California built International with double bed.

I better get to checking my paperwork. The different year doesn't effect my take on it in any way. Definitely good to know though! Thank you for that.

I wondered when I was looking at photos before, but the bathroom set up threw me. I couldn't find the same layout in any year but 64.

Richard, would NWOverlander have a roadside bathroom if he had a CA built? NW'' - This is one of the identifiable California characteristics. So pilgrim ... do you?

The bathroom is identical to ours in the 65 Tradewind! Good luck on your restore. Ipersonally love the Overlanders,no matter what the year.

That bath doesn't look like a stock 67. Looks 65ish to me.
How about a vin # ?
