Just picked up this 73 Chinook 2500. I am not finding much information on them anywhere Any tips would be appreciated. It's in pretty complete shape other than the missing genset and medicine cabinet. Want to keep it fairly original. Looking for information on sourcing windshield and front and back window rubbers. Picture of medicine cabinet would be helpful to try to match it (close anyway). It is supposed to run but that is yet to be seen. And electrical.... Charging system info. There is an old 70s portable battery charger in there to charge with. Does not look factory so information there would be helpful too. Thanks.

Thanks guys. Delizia I tried to look at pictures of yours but am not good at this site yet. Do you have pics posted?

Hi Vince, and everyone else too!

I just bought a 1973 Chinook. I too  have noticed the real scarcity of pictures of Chinooks like ours, and info about them. I just bought the M300 chassis manual on eBay which covers the engine, brakes, transmission, etc. But, as far as manuals or other specifics about the house portion of the Chinook...not so much.

The good news. It is all there, and all I have to do is spend the next couple of years working on her to get her back in shape.

Also, the medicine cabinet is intact in my Chinook, so I will be sure to take pics soon and post them for you, Vince. 

I will share whatever other resources I find, and please do so too!

 best,

DDG owner of 1973 chinook 2200

Hi Vince. Your Chinook certainly looks great. type Chinook in the tiny search box very top right and there are 7 pages of past discussions of various Chinooks. You can use Send Message to any other Chinook owner. Also, open RVparts & Accessories at the top of the home page and you will find sources for windshields, rubber trim, etc.
