1967 Overlander - damaged, still desirable?

I have a bit of heartbreak here. Bought a 1967 overlander, pulled the skins, redid the floor insulation and sub floor, reworked everything, installed and painted skins, started working on interior design.

Roughly 1 year ago, a tornado went through our property and a tree crushed the back end. Is this salvageable/worth something to the right person?

TIA

Wow--sorry for this misfortune!

I did notice that during the pandemic, when everyone seemed to be living their dream of moving into an RV and working remotely, any wreck was commanding a good price. Not so much now, as I am again seeing gutted vintage trailers that someone lost interest in being sold for around $6k.

So, of course it is repairable, it is just a question of whether you could find the replacement formed segments (not available new), and whether you have the desire to do the major surgery to fix it.

As it is, it is more of a "parts" trailer, and isn't going to be worth very much.

good luck!

Thanks for the feedback! Thatís what I expected.. we bought in 2019, and poured hours and hours into this thing. Itís really a shame.

Any insight on determining value? I donít think we have the stomach for finding all the parts (though weíll likely find and start a new project). Iíd love to see it in the hands of someone who could use as much as possible

Thank you!!

You can look at ebay's completed listings and see if you see some similar "salvage condition" trailers, and what their final selling price was.

The other option would be to just offer it up for sale in all the usual places, provide full disclosure as to its condition and pick a price that feels reasonable to you. If you get no takers, you can always reduce the price. Not knowing what all you have repaired/upgraded during your time working on it, my gut tells me you would be lucky to sell for $5k.

When I look at vintage trailers, my first thought is that you are really just buying a shell, as most of the interior disintegrates when you try to remove it. Your case is a bit different in that you have already done a bunch of work, but, the shell is fairly wrecked.

good luck!
