need photos of original interiors of '55 Sovereign

We're about to begin restoring a '55 Sovereign, and we hope to put it back as near-original as possible, but therein lies the problem. Although we have most of the original furnishings, we have no idea of what kinds of fabrics, curtains, dining tables, etc. this model originally used. Does anyone know where I might find some photos to examine?

Also, we will need the rear window, frame and all, because it was replaced with a window a/c with plywood filling in the rest of the opening. The only other major missing part is the front gaucho, drawers and all. Help!!!!

Marian

Vintage Airstream Photo Archives has a few that might help. Not much for the 55, but a few from 54. http://vintageairstream.com/archives/index.html

Send a message via Yahoo to yukionna
eBay

Another idea is to keep an eye on eBay postings for your model/year Airstream. I'm doing that for both my vintage trailers and have gathered a plethoria of photos/ideas just over the past year.

Thanks to all of you! We leave tomorrow to pick up our "new baby." She's not nearly as beautiful and pristine as Jason's, but we love her just as much, and we hope she grows up to look like Jason's queen. What a lucky guy (and what a nice guy) Jason is! We have been in regular contact, and he has been very, very helpful. I keep hoping that we'll eventually turn up a brochure or something that shows off this pretty girl. Thanks, thanks, thanks!
