1961 Bambi - OH 161T160 - Front Lounge

Does anyone have photos to share of the structure under the original front lounge on a 1960's Bambi?


Looking to replace some missing pieces.


There is also a hinged lip above the two drawers that I am not sure what the purpose is except for the possibility of leveling the surface for sleeping.


Also is anyone using the original compressed air pump for the fresh water tank?

The hinged lip when dropped down will hold the drawers in when driving.

air pump

I use the original air pump in my '61 Safari. I like it.
