The ser. # should be on a plaque next to the door. Take a pic and post it here and many can tell you what it is.

Absolutely no value! give me a call and I will do you a favor and take it off your hands for free.

Photos would help.

What else can you tell us about the condition?

By the way an Airstream as scrap is worth about nine cents a pound towed to a scrapper last time I checked. If you want to spend a week or so cutting it up you can make about $1 an hour.

And 60s are very collectable.

Don't tell anyone else. Get some repro plates from VTS and stamp on your number from the registration / title paperwork. Then go register it in your name.

trailer

This might also be a historic A/S!!! It could have traveled outside the U.S. in the early 60's. What do the stickers indicate? Look inside interior cabinets for any paperwork or decals that may apply. Post pics here. I tried your facebook link and it is not available. Ed

Link still doesn't work, try using the picture system here or insert manually. A few good pictures of the side with the door, any plates and one of the interior looking toward the back and we can tell you more.

It sounds like you don't have a title, registration or bill of sale? There may be a way to get around this, but it makes it more complicated.

Contact your local DMV for advice on getting it titled and registered. Every state has different requirements, some easy, some not so much. Minnesota was easy. Some other states are PIA's per reading ordeals on the forums here. Good luck!
