Looks like the "ghosted" numbers, front and back, are 945.

As usual you nailed this one. I bet when they remove the wood work from the dinnette they will find it had a goucho. From the photos the workwork is PO and does not match the type or construction of the original. What a rare and wonderful find! Isn't it wonderful that we all have a forum to share these great Airstreams!

Hi Everybody....My husband just found a way to identify your Airstream by tell where it was made, what model, how long, and what year...
For example J0266124 is made in Ohio, it is an Overlander, it's 26 feet, it's a 1966 and it's a twin. You can go to this link and click on pre 1980 VIN and there is a PDF file that will explain.Airstream :: Customer Services

Hi Dureedesign -- Glad to see you posting!

The Airstream FAQ page has a lot of good information. The VIN samples are good for a lot of years but does have some gaps in time. Once a person thinks they are close, Vintage Airstream Photo Archives has photo pages devoted to quite a few vintage models. For instance, look at the VIN samples at the top left of the '66 Overlander page -- no more actual info than Airstream's FAQs. Neither site covers all Airstream production perfectly but one or the other will answer 99% of the questions.

welcome to the flying cloud club! you have a great trailer (that's my own UNbiased opinion of course )

yup, i'd say fred nailed as well. fred's description fits my 56 flying cloud pretty good too (with the exception of the 13 panel endcaps).

the photos you show are similar to my FC before i gutted it. i also have the same signage on mine. you can check out my photos and lack of progress under the 56 flying cloud forum.

also, click the link for this thread, it's the FC registry that a member has started and you can add your FC to the list


*by asking the above question,
i verify that i have already used
the search feature to the best of my ability...
