Based on the VIN number, sounds like you have a late 1955 Flying Cloud built in CA. All Flying Clouds were made in CA in 1955 and the VIN #'s ranged from 7750-7975. Ohio built 22-footers were Safari's & Panorama's in 1955. Being that it was made late in the year, it may not have been registered until 1956 - which might be what's on your title.

Check this out for more info and some "twins".

Enjoy! Post pics when you can ~

Hey Tim and Jen,
I'm guessing we have seen your cloud near the park in Mapleton. We live just down the road in Springville. We have redone a 1964 Globetrotter. We would sure like to meet and see your cloud up close. I'm sure Shari is right on about your serial number, she's right there with a similar vintage, OH vs. CA. If I can help, let me know.
Ben
