Looking for my first airstream for renovation: 26 29' 1970's or 80's

Hello!

I'm looking for an airstream from the 1970's or 80's yes, yes, I'm casting a wide net here that is a 26 29 footer that most importantly has a bay window on one end. I'm really not picky about which model, although I am a fan of the Argosy and the many models that have that sexy blue stripe down the side. I'm looking to completely gut the thing and renovate from the frame up. If there's one that's already gutted, that's a plus for me. For this reason, I'm looking to pay less than 10,000. I live in NYC but am willing to drive approximately 100 miles.

Looking forward to a year of renovations and a life on the road!

Thanks a bunch :

How about something easier to work with? We have a 1986 Airstream Classic 32 foot TWO door!! When we parked it several years ago everything worked. All original except the micro oven. The tires will be replaced with the ones on my current Airstream. We are in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
