Here are a few pics of the inside. I had to cu out the floors and weld new ones in . I made new wall panels by using 3/16 luan and vinyl wallpaper(that what the originals are made of) except that I coated both sides of the Luan with an oilbase primer in case it ever gets wet should help it not fall apart. I had to use 22 inch wide wallpaper as the 52 inch wide stuff was only available in 300' rools so there are a few extra seems but you can't see them. I picked a print that looked up to date but yet still matched the vintage interior.
Here was the floor.

The cabinets..I used a Rustoleum refinishing system. It was cheap and has held up really well. I wanted to restain but the sanding and stripping would have been endless.

haha..this thing sat in a garage up in Ipswitch mass for 20 years. I didnt even play around with the rotten gas in the tank. Immediatly put it on life support with an ouboard motor tank. I drove it home 2 hrs like that stopping a few times to top off the tank. I also had a bad Ign module and the carb accel pump was shot but she made it home.
