Time to get serious

Finally got the MH off the street, not without a small hiccup (see photo gallery) but we survived the impact and no lives were lost. Now I can really get serious and pull the engine, trans for rebuild. I can also pull side glass and drop the last two interior pieces, the front cap and center console. As you can see in photo gallery, I have already pulled the entire floor up. The AC over the engine is next as well.See More

"Sent email to Saunders Repro Glass asking about 2 & 3 piece windshields for us old Starcraft, Glastron and Islander owners. Anyone try them?"

Donald Gordon replied to Gary Sebastian's discussion Glastron Motorhome repair, maintenance and refurbishing
"Hi Jenon, Ron is correct in that the glass from a Ford C series (57-92) will fit the Islander, Glastron and starcraft. Unfortunately there is one difference. If you have two sides then you have custom/original glass. The C series is about 32"…"

"Hard to tell, did you replace the entire floor? If so did you go Plywood or a composition floor? I am toying with glass roving bottom,HD foam and glass roving and floating floor on top."

"Okay, I'm so Jonesing that bathroom. Original? I will be making something like that for mine as I had nothing when I got it."

"It is funny how similar yet dissimilar the Starcraft and Glastron are. Any interior pictures. For what it is worth. That windshield consists of the two halves from a 57 to 91 C Series (C-600) Ford cabover, and are readily available, with a flat…"

The Starcraft Starliner Captains log

Brief background. Saw the 1970 Starcraft in OC Craigslist ad about a year ago. Fell in love with the style immediately. Timing was bad for me so I let it go. Year later, saw it again in Craigslist for about half the original price. Talked to the current owner. He had bought it to restore and rent out at his shop in OC. Insurance would no longer write policies for his old MH's, He had 4 or 5 Cortezs in rough to restored condition, and was closing shop. Had AAA tow her the 72 miles to the Valley…See More

I have the same situation with my 1973 Dodge class-C it was about to go to the junkyard and I could'nt let it happen, however As I learned myself you have a very big undertaking trying to bring one of these back into shape is alot of time  money and (at times) aggravation. But best of luck let me know how you do.
