Sorry that it took me so long to get some pics. My computer has been goofed up for most of the week. I dont know how to get the pictures into the thread. But I did finally figure out how to get my pictures into my own photo gallery.Click on it and let me know what yall think. One of the pics I took looking from the streetside door to the curbside through the trailer.

I think there are a couple of different ways to post pix. The way I learned from an article in the Monthly Newsletter is to:
Select Post Reply
Arrow down to Manage Attachments
Hit Browse
Select a Photo from your file
Open it
Upload it
Close that window

Believe me. If I can do it. Anyone can. Ron
PS the size you are using will work fine.

just checked your photo gallery. definately an airstream. the sign under the front window is an obvious giveaway, but the panelling and doors look authentic airstream. i'd like to know the history of that one.

The end cap count marks it as a 1957 or later model. The only other thing I have to say is WOW - kewl Airstream.

Are you sure?

Special ed, Is the trailer really only a 17' Pacer? Those pictures make me think it has to be bigger to have those two doors. Maybe someone will check you serial number info and let me know for sure. The 359 stamped the serial plate is probably the production number... Like the 359th trailer produced at the Santa Fe Springs plant for the model year. Ed

Definitely not 17'

It appears to be a 59' Overlander/Custom 26'
Number 177 off the line, built in March (3) of 1959 (59)

Definitley a rarity, the first Airstream I've seen with doors on streetside and curbside. In addition the two narrow windows at the front signify the rare bunk option - usually at the (mid) rear of the trailer. You've got yourself a one-of-a-kind trailer.

You say there is no interior left?

Swapped some emails with the keepers of Vintage Airstream. Their opinion was a 1959 Overlander also. CA built but carrying the serial number style that was not actually used in CA until 1960. They thought it was likely a model used at rallies so people could walk through - in one door and out the other side.

Question they had - does the trailer have evidence of a full bath?

Sorry about the 17' pacer thing in the profile; I didnt have any idea what the model was .I guess that I just clicked on a late fifties model not thinking. I believe the camper is 26' long. I pulled the interior (such as it was)out yesterday. The floor has an extra layer of filthy rotting plywood covering anything that might have been there.Thanks for the info Great Pumpkin and Ganglin! I'll post more as I tear into it deeper

Inquiring minds want to know!

special ed, Did it have any evidence of a bath at all? How about plumbing (sink/comode/gally sink)? Ed

Welcome Special Ed!

Welcome to the forum! This is the place to learn all Airstream! You'll meet some great folks too! Everyone here loves to give advice!

We are all dying to see photos of your *new* airstream! Post lots and lots... if you have trouble posting, ask... there is a little size issue, but once you get the hang of it, it works easily!

Pictures, we love lots of pictures!
Again, Welcome.

Special Trailer

Welcome special ed,
Nice to see a new variation to the A/S trailers in this FORUM. Looking forward to hearing about your restoration plans. With an empty interior, you will have a fresh drawing slate to design a floorplan.
P.S. Clancyboy, will you be taking a road trip to check this trailer out in person?

Welcome Special Ed and thanks for the pictures. How cool. Have fun with that project and keep us all updated now and then. There's a flooring material you might consider using called Advantec (not certain of the spelling). It's a plywood material that will not rot. Check it out at your local lumber yard. One disadvantage is that it's a little heavier than plywood.
HAPPY TRAILS
