Ohio built 1962 Safari

Hi Fellow Airstreamers,
Another Safari has found its way into my life. This time a 1962 Ohio built Safari. My other is a 1976. The first four pictures are of my Craigslist find. I can thank my iPad Craigslist app for that... Dangerous app! Anyway, I'm looking forward to a restoration that will keep her looking the same (as much as possible). I will be moving my spare tire, though.
The last 2 pictures are of another 1962 Safari in my neighborhood that showed up last November. The serial numbers seem to say that these two Airstream Safari's were built a few hundred apart! Kinda cool.
Now for a name...

Very cool! Do you still have it? Any updates.

I put a deposit down on a '62 Safari tonight. Plan to get it tomorrow!

Jim,
That's awesome!
How's the condition?
My 62 is coming along!
I'm doing a shell on restoration.
I just completed some welding.
Waiting for my shipment of aluminum from Aircraft Spruce!
I prewired for solar, made all lighting 12v (international model).
Also working on my 1976.
I'm sort of looking for a 50's Safari...
Have fun!

It seems to be in excellent condition. I took delivery last night. I have a lot more inspecting to do and am unsure about things like plumbing (likely needs redone), propane, and a lot of things need tightened up, but overall it looks amazing.
