Thanks for the plug Richard.

Depending on the shape of your interior, I wouldn't consider selling it for under $3000-$4000. I paid $2500 for mine not including gas to fetch it. I have probably spend $1,000 on tools and parts so far needed for restoration. It isn't fast, it isn't cheap....but it's an Airstream!

A good example of two of the great things about this forum...the depth of knowledge here and the willingness to share that knowledge with fellow streamers...just because they can.

See you down the road!

it's a flying cloud as already pointed out but i'm not sure it's a '56. do you have the VIN # located near the door?

i have a '56 and my access panel is on the curb side, yours is in the rear. mine was made in los angeles, yours was made in ohio so that could have been a difference between the two, not sure. the VIN # will tell you for sure, if you can look it up and post it, that would be great. the street side windows are different as well. my guess a '55 flying cloud.

your cloud as is is worth around 3K or so, probably worth 20kor so all fixed up. you could easily spend 10K-15K in the restoration process if you did more of the work yourself.

i'm in the process of a shell-off renovation, here's my cloud for reference;

I need some info.....ready for the move

Can anyone familiar with the Flying Cloud tell me the hitch height....for my hitch ball set up?

What information is there on this type wheel well....on a 56 Cloud?

Will a 225 x 75 x 15 tire fit (replacing the 700 x 15 on it now.) I read on one of the Cloud Forums that some trouble ws involved with this update.
