I think regular apartment-sized appliances and plumbing were used "back in the day", so the sink, even if replaced, may be almost the same as the original.

Thanks Terry,

I think you're right it doesn't look like anything special. I'm really only holding it to see if anyone else wants it, as it looks like we are going to start fresh on the interior.

A long road we have just begun...

If the sink looks like this (I couldn't find a photo you had of it), it is OEM, or so close as to make no difference:

Terry,

Is that sink enamel over steel?

Yes it is. The photo is from a 59 Ambassador, the one in our Overlander is identical, but I can't find a good pic.

Sink

I'll post a photo tomorrow - I think this one is enamel over steel, but it is actually two sinks mounted next to one another, in one large cut off of the countertop, and separated by a strip of metal. I'm sure the faucet is not original.

I thought I had read somewhere about the hazzards of "meth"...the process of making it can ruin a house. dangerous chemicals get absorbed into the walls and so forth, making the place uninhabitable. I don't want to be perpetuating urban myths...but I'd look into this. I'm not exactly sure where to start. maybe some drug-cops? anyway, find out. you might not want to be breathing the air in there. It might require a full-monty to get rid of anything in there that could have possibly absorbed any of this stuff...pull the walls, new insulation, new floor (which you were already planning).

I agree with Chuck...check it out. I know they busted a mobile meth lab not too far from my house here a while back and they had the hazmat guys in there in their moonsuits. In this case it was in a cargo trailer. They loaded the trailer up on a roll back, tarped it and hauled off when the hazmat guys got done with it.

please dont call them labs...

I find the use of the term lab in reference to some jerk playing with volatile chemicals for a cheap high or an easy buck offensive……..but to the point. Chuck is correct. In the process of “cooking” meth hazardous waste is produced and meth vapors are generated which are readily absorbed into fibers (carpet, cushions, wood, ect). Residues can also accumulate in the plumbing and in the exhaust. I am not versed in the clean up process, however, it is undoubtedly something less than inexpensive.
