Incidentally
That piece of scrap is not worth n towing away
I would not invest one $ in trying to fix that up,
It's a health hazard just to go inside and breath the air

It's a classic. [emoticon]
It would be a cool restoration project.

You are kidding, right? That thing is beyond restoring- it is not even road worthy enough to be towed off. The current owner should get a roll off dumpster and a front end loader and scoop it up into the dumpster and take the remains to a landfill. RIP!

A money pit!!! Just price a new set of tires and you are in deep.

At nearly 50 years since it rolled off the production line and considering the over condition based on the listing, any literature you do find will be of little use. If you do choose to attempt to recover and restore the coach you'll be starting from scratch as there doesn't appear to be much in the way of anything that would be reusable. Very little of the house side looks recoverable and no telling what the frame looks like without climbing under it to inspect. Strong possibility the engine is frozen and the transmission is long past it's use by date.

Best to allow the environment of the Colorado prairie to continue it's work converting the rig into more stable elements of iron and aluminum oxide along with broken long chain hydrogen-carbon elements.

I'm not going to say yes or know to the project, but this post points out a major mistake many make when starting to restore a vehicle; Bring it home, most of the tires won't hold air. So they run out and buy new tires. But most times, a DIY restoration takes years. So when they finally get to the reward for all that work a tire goes bang. Better plan, IMHO, is get enough "may-pops" from a tire shop to hold it up, then when done, buy the the new tires.
