I am new to the forum. I have gathered a wealth of information by reading your information in my attempt to restore my recently accured 1964
Overland. I am retired, live in South Florida and really look forward to restoring the AS.
I bought my AS off of eBay. I made the trip to Michigan (near Port Huron) to pick up my AS. It had been parked behind a ladies home in the country and used as storage since 1976.
It took me three full days work to get her out of the back yard and on the road. All wheels were flat and sank into the earth up to the axels, the hitch jack was missing and the earth was clay. What a job! I was by myself and without two great floor jacks it would still be in Michigan.
I sold my summer home in Au Sable Michigan and loaded the AS with 2,000 pounds of my wife's must haves and headed back to Lake Placid Florida with no problems.
While waiting for my home in MI. to sell I relaced the hitch jack, wheels, tires and brakes. I rewired the essential wiring, replaced the side markers and repacked the wheel bearing. Wanted to replace the shocks, but I could not match them up with anything locally available. I will be buying a set from Andy soon.
I know I have been long winded. Thanks to all for this super forum.
