1963 Rear Layout

Been many years since I tore it down, and quite a few years since I started putting it back together. I used the old floor to make the cut outs in the new marine grade plywood floor. But now trying to remember where to plumb, water, gas & electric.

Moving from right to left, toilet, stove top/ refer, then sink ?
What is all the ventilation for in the floor & wall under the window ?
What is accessed through the door ?
I assume the big hole, far left, is water heater. Where would the furnace be located in the original factory layout ?

You can also Google the floor plan and specs for the 63. On the rear wall, the small door near the floor is an access panel to the rear of the original gas fridge. The louver vents the fridge and cooktop.

You are luck! I did exactly the same thing and have pictures of the piping. They are on my blog at Look for the earlier posts at the bottom of the page and you will see the process for rebuilding. Good luck!
