Question Just purchased a 1974 Chinook! Need some help

Hello! I am new to this community and just got a '74 Chinook Concourse. The engine runs great, but the years have taken a toll on her. Also, the interior is in pretty good shape considering, but the refrigerator need to be fixed/replaced (doesn't work, not sure why), and the cabinets need to be repainted/replaced.

Some of the pressing issues we need to fix ASAP is the gas gauge (it bounces from full to empty to all over the place), the windshield leaks on the passenger side (I think because of cracked sealing), and the battery needs a new stand/cage, because it is bouncing all over the place and the old one has deteriorated.

Anyone her fixed up an old Chinny and know of good resources to help us do the repairs? Any information, websites, videos, people would be helpful!

Thank you all!

Welcome!

I can't answer your questions but there are folks here who will.


With this being said, we sure love to see pic's, especially before & After.


Good luck, you'll have fun.
