What does this VIN # tell me?

I'm looking at an older Overlander...owner not sure of the year and no year on the title. VIN #: I26O579T As best I can decipher it is an International 26' Overlander with Twin Beds/Rear Bath. What do the numbers 579 tell me? Owner thinks it is a 1962 but I'm thinking older. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help. Tried calling Jackson Center but was on hold forever....

I'm guessing it's a 1960 International 26', and that 579 is the sequence #.

Mistral Blue...that is exactly what it is. Identical to those in the pictures. Interestingly enough, the owner has the original paperwork with no year but includes an accessory brochure for the "59's". I'm guessing their model years run from one year into the next. Based on the sequence of numbers on this trailer, it was made late in the production run, probably 1960. Thanks for solving the mystery!

Wink Whoa hold on

Bob,
WHOA now, let's hold on. You're looking at Airstream number two and you haven't finished with Airstream number one yet. Everybody should have at least two.
