just wanted to introduce ourselves. We have been proud owners of a 1961
Trade Wind for almost 2 months now. So, please excuse us if we don't know the "technical terms" yet... This may sound silly to you, but we are not so sure that our AS is in fact a Trade Wind. Even the seller (bought it on ebay) wasn't sure about it.
I compared our AS to the '61 Trade Wind here
And although our AS was also assembled in Santa Fe Springs, it has an additional window next to the door (on the right; like the '62 model in the online archive) and three windows on the other side. Now, can anybody tell me for sure if it is a Tradewind? Why are there so many variations?
Thanks for your help!
