Identify Airstream Model/year

I recently inherited some property, and out in the woods there's a small campsite built with an old airstream sitting on it.

It's actually in pretty decent shape for being ~50 years old and abandoned in the woods. The owner hasn't been around in 20 years, he was contacted and said he didn't care to have it. So I guess it's mine to now, fix up and use, or sell, or whatever.

Don't know what year it is or what model. I've been looking around the internet and have not been able to find out much based on the numbers. Closest I found was here:
https://www.airstream.com/service/

My best guess, based on that site, is a 1960 Airstream Ambassador. But they didn't have my exact serial number.
So I decided to take it to the forums where I could get some advice or help identifying it.

Numbers from the plate:
28TS 0206

360

Based on that information, you have a California built 1960 Ambassador http://vintageairstream.com/photo-ar...ambassador-28/

Ah, OK. So my guess was correct. Thanks!

Now I need to inspect it further and look into potential repairs, I guess.

It's got one corner of the floor that looks like it's falling out, and a broken window, but at least the roof doesn't seem to leak at all.

Is there a way to look up a rough sale value on these, or is it mostly subjective to its condition?
