Overlander. It has been sitting for 20 plus years in Chatsworth, Los Angeles and has never leaked! I am curious what type of connection it needs for brake hook ups though. I used to own a 63 Aristocrat and it required a special adapter. Also does anyone know what type of polish is used and how its applied? I would like to get started on that right away. Anyway, great site! I'm glad I stumbled on it. Can't wait to drive down and pick her up!!!
Be sure to check out the axles.
All brands of torsion axles will have their rubber rods fail, due to lack of use.
If the torsion arms, as they go rearward are parallel to the ground or, go uphill, then the axles are done.
When the rubber rods are done, bottoming out will happen as you hit even small bumps. That in turn, causes severe pounding to the frame and shell, which in turn, causes many expensive damages.
