Too many naysayers on this site…

Melissa, that is such a cool piece of history! It may not be the windfall needed to put the kids through college, but it would certainly be the coolest RV in the park when restored.
I love it!

I think you probably overpaid for it. You might be able to get a couple hundred bucks from someone looking for its engine or parts. As a whole unit, maybe you could donate it. Look into what it will cost to restore and what it might be worth then. There's a really tiny market for something like this and a handful of restorers out there. They might know someone who is interested in it and maybe you could get a couple hundred dollars that way. Less if they have to ship it first.

^^^ This.

A full restoration would be a labor of love. It'd never be a moneymaker--it actually would be a money pit--but it would be really, really cool! *If* the OP has the determination and resources to restore it she should go for it.

It may hold some value to the right person, the trick is finding that person. It's going to be a super-niche market. If the outside looks like the inside, you're likely looking at a full gut and rebuild to get it serviceable and comfortable, which is a $10-20k investment even with doing the work yourself. For sure, it's a super cool looking vehicle, but you're going to have to find someone who REALLY wants to get into a super cool vehicle that needs a ton of work. Restoring these things are not really a moneymaker, you need some emotional investment to make it worthwhile.

Maybe it is an old, converted step-van or delivery van.

Thanks it is pretty cool , the inside is intact with original cabinets and appliances, just covered in rat poo. I’ll post pics tomorrow of the inside.

I've restored old motorhomes back to their former glory that were way farther gone. Give it a lot of love and make something out of it. I love to see old coaches returned to the road where they belong. If you can't or won't then get it to someone who can and will.
What's with all of the negative comments and worries about what it would take? Sounds as if some people here do not enjoy working on vintage and antique RVs. If so, then why are you posting in the "Vintage RV" section?

You rock . I feel the same way. I know it’s not going to be a quick and easy restoration, or cheap, but it has the potential to be something really cool and I know it’s worth something to someone , it’s a classic.

There’s nothing negative about the comments. Everyone has been answering the question posed. If someone wants to sink a bunch of money into something that has no return but coolness, more power to them. That wasn’t what was asked. I think it’s cool as can be and would love to see it restored. But it’s a big hill to climb and saying that is just being honest. Saying it’s cool isn’t all that helpful.

Excellent point. And Sometimes the truth hurts . Thank you everyone for your input, I was hoping to hear its some rare sought after classic ride worth 50,000, but no such luck I guess, bummer. Lol

Ok, maybe there's just one actual negative comment. I refer you Post #8 in this thread. Maybe I mis-interpreted it.
