Hi: Im new on this site and am refurbishing a 1969 Glastron 20 foot Motorhome on a dodge chassis. I actually bought two of them one being a 1970. They are both pretty bad having sat for many years. I have gotten most of the mechanicals working. Engine, fuel, brakes, radiator etc. I have pretty well gutted the interior for a total redo. I am retired and have spent the last 10 years restoring cars, trucks, motorcycles for fun and profit. I have a very patient wife of 47 years! I will try to post pictures as progress and time permits.

Hello Jim.... Welcome to a very friendly website with awesome people. Your rig looks swell and you obviously have several talents. Had I started a project like that a couple of years ago I would still be scratching my head trying to figure out where to start. I would not be surprised if down the line members were asking YOU for advice. We wish you and yours many wonderful and safe miles. bill

Well as my parents would say to me as a kid dig in and have fun with it and if u need help just ask, but in your case you probably won't with your skills. My husband is just like your wife very relaxed man. Best of luck with that project keepposting so we can see more pic of how she is looking. Best of luck and many miles to come.

Hi, jimb636, looks like a very interesting project. Are you going to sell or keep the units when finished. Will watch for more pictures and blow by blow account of your work.

Glastron project:

We dont know if we will sell the unit when finished but there is a high likely hood of that. I have finally finished gutting out all the walls floor damage and ceilings, insulation etc. The next project is to drive the thing and see what I may have to work on yet to make it reliable. The carburettor is a likely area of replacement.
