I agree, SWEET tractors. Looks like you have your work cut out for you, but great find! Glad it found a good home!

I had to do a double take on the semi behind you. It looked like it said "Monte", which is what you're going to have to be doing to get this thing back on the road.

Keep us posted!

What an exciting experience! Thanks for posting the pictures. It looks pretty overwhelming right now, but it will be so worth it. What a cute trailer! It's the perfect size!

What a great find, Becky.

I recommend that you try and keep as much of the hardware, lights, sconces, sinks, faucets, byam hooks, etc... that's in your trailer to retain the period feel in your restoration.

Good luck with your restoration and have fun. We sure have had fun restoring our '58.

I'm so happy this poor abandoned Bambi is going to have a new home. I can't help but feel so sorry for her abandoned like that

Always wanted a tractor, but with only 4 acres of manicured lawn and on a slight hill I only have a commercial zero turn mower. I just cannot justify a tractor but I do borrow one from a friend once a year for "heavy yard work".

Looks like you have some work cut out for you - my wife would have a fit if I brought one home - never mind what the POA would say. We already have two in the yard.

Congradulations! That is a great find! I am very happy for you and for the Bambi. I am surprised that the shell is in such great shape with no dents.

No dents, but one spot of corrosion all the way through on the streetside. I'll probably replace that panel when I get to that sequence of the redo. I'm sure I'll have lots of reading to do & questions to ask about that process! At least it's a straight panel. Anyone have a buck rivet gun for rent!?

Tractors and Airstreams

I like the tractor pictures. Here is a couple of a 57 overlander that I originally bought for parts but ended up selling to BradS and he is bringing her back to life now.

Hey Becks e-bay always has good used ones listed from $20 to $50. They come from the aircraft industry. Look for one that has been refurbished.

So can you walk in the thing or do you just step through the floor? Shell on or Shell off restoration? Can't wait to watch your progress!
