1959 Tradewind History?

Does any one have any information on the history of the 1959 Tradewind 24'? Or know where I can find how many were made, etc.? I have purchased a gutted one that I am going to bring back to life. Thank you!

Have you seen this website?

Vintage Airstream Archive - 1959 Tradewind

Looks like they made less than 200 of them based on the sequential numbers in the VIN of 001-187.

Hello from Colorado: I used to have a 66 Trade Wind that I did some serious renovations to. I enjoy the vintage Airstream hobby. Congratulations on your recent acquisition and pending project.

There are some interesting webpages that you might find interesting. I like the Airstream Inc website that has a document archive section. Then you can search 1959 and then Trade Wind. Here is a link to the info I found there.

https://www.airstream.com/owners/doc...r/1959/page/2/

You can also google search 1959 Trade Wind and find several threads in these Forums about folks renovating their trailers. You would likely learn a lot about your trailer doing that.

As mentioned, the Vintage Airstream Resource is a good website. Here is a link to some photos of the 59 Trade Wind. You can get an idea what it looked like back then.

Thank you!! I have searched the archives and the vintage airstream website. I'll dig deeper into the forum for more threads. I am still learning this platform

It had already been gutted, new axle/framework, new marine plywood subfloors, and new custom tanks installed. A perfect clean slate! We are going to start sealing, insulation, wiring, etc soon!

Thank you for the advice!
Taylor
