John,

Most 'Birds came with a safe, mine is located under one of the dinette cushions, some are inside of the cabinet that houses the transfer switch for the electrical house power, it all depends on the model and the interior layout.

By the way, that's agood looking signature

John,
Thank you for the nice coments.

I would like to thank you for your site, I have spent a few hours on it looking and learning allot.

I have looked under the bench seats, and around the transfer switch, either it is hiding real good, not there, or doesn't have one at all.

I will keep looking.

Thanks

Default Where is the safe

John:

When I first got my bird, I looked and looked and looked for the safe. Finally one day while exploring the rear closet. I was adjusting the shelves. When I got to the bottom shelf (left hand corner looking toward the rear), I discovered a shelf that did not seem to be permanently attached. I lifted it up and bingo there was a metal plate with a hole in the center. I lifted up the metal plate and there was the safe. No combination though only a funny looking lock. Sometime much later while rambling through an assorted collection of keys (all unlabled) I found three round keys (like you would use on a burglar alam panel). Guess what - the safe keys. Now if I could stop spending money on the bird, I could put some money in the safe. It would be nice too if I could find out what the other fifty or so keys fit.

Interesting machines these birds.

Default Where is the safe

BTW:

Rambling through a previously owned bird is interesting - almost like a treasure hunt. I have found a solid steel and walnut based pecan cracker (c. 1940's). I found a good pair of military binoculars (WWII type) about 25 pair of glasses. a box of S&W 45 cal. pistol cartridges (less one round) Two Boy Scout compasses, assorted foreign coins. What appears to be a brand new set of what I think is a two part linen table cloth in the original BB bag with snaps where you can fasten them together and put over the expanded table. The table cloths for gosh sakes were in a metal box in the curbside battery compartment.

Someone ought to start a thread posting what they have found in their birds.

thx for the info,

I didn't find anything interesting yet. Found some kids books and stuffed toys.
couple of cat toys, fishing bobbers.

No money or anything else of interest.
I too have a pack of keys with no where to put them. I did find the gas and ignition keys so far.

Will keep searching.

thx

In my father's 84 FC35, the safe was inside the vanity in the bedroom. Curbside, memory serve.

When I bought my bird the safe was empty but later I found a small gold chain under the couch. The greatest fun though is that after four years I'm still finding things I never knew about this bird. A switch here, a valve there.

John and Pong,
My '83FC35 has a safe which is under the forward dinette bench. Lucky for me the combination was taped to the top. It took a while to figure out how it worked, but after that it was easy. I keep fuel money in it if I have any.
