Lightbulb What is Worth Keeping?

We're doing a full overhaul of a 1964 Overlander and we'll be replacing the interior. I've had a lot of airstreamers recommend keeping as much of the original as possible because of the number of people looking for parts.

We've gutted everything down to the subfloor and we're about to hit the road on Sunday (10hrs south) to a small coastal community where we'll be doing the reno (Madeira Park BC). We'd like to carry as little with us as possible.

We took care to remove the fiberglass tub and a lot of the shelving. Still have almost all the knobs and some original gizmos like the battery tester and so on.

The tub is the main thing. It's big and cumbersome, if people would really be interested in it I'll keep it, otherwise it's gotta go.

Thanks for any advice.

IMHO, keep everything until your completely finished your restoration. There have been many that have started a project like you're doing, run out of stream, and sell the trailer to someone with the new owner "wishing" they had kept the parts.

Just Saying,

Maybe put an ad in the classifieds Parts and Appliances section?

We redid this very same model. I love having a tub/shower BUT the toilet is the problem! We saved the tub and sink but cut out the problem part. When you're not using the tub, you can store all sorts of things in that space - we use ours to store guitar cases, grubby shoes and the occasional case of wine..

If you are rebuilding the upper cabinet - save the old ones as a template - same from the vertical room dividers. The accordion door hardware is also useful to keep and if you still have the hangers - use them or pass them along to someone else - they are no longer available.

I know it's a pain...but ABSOLUTELY keep the fiberglass tub/shower/sink. List it in the Airforums classifieds, someone will want it! It is unfortunate that you aren't more centrally located - it isn't something that would be easily shippable, but someone may want it bad enough to make the trek to pick it up.

Also all the lights, knobs & hardware are "great finds" for someone who is looking for them! We had a '64 before and they hold a special place in my heart! They are pretty unique in that the mid-sixties were a transition period and a lot of hardware, lights & "smalls" were only in use for that single year.

Again, take some photos & list them in the classifieds - they will be greatly appreciated!

Good luck in your move & start of your restoration!

One other comment, if you have small children or planning to do so, you will be glad you have the bath-tub. My now 18 year old daughter still talks about taking baths in our 1966 Overlander when she was a kid. Her mother enjoyed a few as well.

Enjoy,

Ditto what Peter said. When we gutted ours, we put a "free" add in the classifieds. Within a week or so almost everything was gone. People seemed most interested in plastic/fiberglass parts, cabinets, and appliances. (Even the ones that didn't work)�� -Andy
