How do I know what shocks to buy for my '64 Overlander? They are vertical shocks.

You can use the regular Airstream shocks. They will work in both vertical and horizontal positions. They also fit both style brackets.

Not specified means there is no law regulating the act of doing that.

In fact in this state (AZ) it is legal to ride in the back of a pick up truck (the bed) in anyway you want*, however if you ride in the cab you must wear a seat belt.

* As long as the load (In this case people) are secured. If the load/people fall out of the bed the driver has some problems. Otherwise the driver is good to go. Street, highway, or freeway, and I have seen it almost every day.

On the shock vertical versus horizontal - it is all about the valving as to whether the shock can be horizontal mounted.
