Our New Project. Need Info.

When we bought our property, this motorhome was on it. It's a 1972 Apollo and it's 26 foot long. I was told it ran but had electrical problems (motor) and we are finally going to start working on it. As far as I know, the last time it ran was about 13 years ago so it should be fun.
The exterior is completely fiberglass and there is no water damage inside. But the mice have gotten into it so there is some cleaning to do. Also, the previous owner started to remodel a little, so the floor covering is gone and the kitchen seats are pulled off. We do have them.
The problem is that I can not find any info about this RV at all. The only thing that I have been able to piece together is that it is on a Dodge chassis and I believe it is powered by a 440 c.i. If anyone can provide any information about this model, it would be greatly appreciated.
We have remodeled old boats, but this is our first RV. Also, we have all Chevy vehicles so this Chrysler motor is unknown territory for me.
Thanks, Dave (72apollo)

That looks exactly like ours, body style at least. But ours needs a lot of work to look that nice. Thanks for the thread.

I decided to put some gas into the tank, put a battery in it, and with a little starting fluid, it started. So now we are definity going to get it running and ready to use before this next winter (hopefully).
But still, some info on this RV would still be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again.
