Original looking fixtures
Then I'd say, YES!

Yep! The outside looks really nice...it the inside is 1/2 as nice, I'd go for it as long as the price is reasonable!

Looks like it hasn't moved in quite awhile...it'll definitely need some attention before towing.

I say go for it. But as Shari said make sure to get all running gear, tires, brakes, and lights up to par before moving it anywhere.

Good luck

Yes (for the right price).....

Your're probably looking at a new axle, rims, tires, brakes..... just to get her down the road to start with. Leaf spring axle?

How far to get her home on the existing running gear? That would be good to get started on all the other stuff.

Still a YES from me.... but we all love aluminum and want to see them all rescued to good homes.

OOooops! Didn't see page 2 of the thread for a little while. Thanks for all the posts. Yes, it hasn't moved in many years. This is going to be a weekend project getting it out of this location. Trees have grown in the path that it followed to it's current destination. These same trees can't be cut to get her out of there! I'll have to drag her a few feet on the maypops, until I can get her on level ground to change the one tire and see if she'll roll at all. First leg of her journey will be 27 miles. Pit stop, then another 25. Shooo Mercy! I couldn't see if she has leaf springs or not. I would imagine so. Undercarriage looks good, tongue looks good. Suicide door has a padlock! :-)

This looks like a very nice find. The body looks great with all the windows intact. If the price was right, I would buy it. Getting it out of it's location may be a challenge, but take it slow and you should be fine.

A 59 should have leaf springs.

It must be priced at what you are willing to spend. Looks like it is in really good shape. I'd do it. Keep in mind the purchase price is just the tip of the iceberg!

Of course you should buy it, after all its a '59. Everything in the descriptions and pictures demonstrate that she is a wonderful candidate for rescue. Congrats and welcome to the forums and ownership in the '59er club. And yes, she'll have leaf springs and no shocks.

Brad is absolutely correct, except that '58's are better.

Wow! Thanks for all the help people! Got her home with no, and I mean No problems. All the lights worked, towed great since she is the original height. Towed her a 100 miles, set her up and got to get to cleaning. Woohoo! I'm a 59'er!

That's one beautiful Airstream. Congrats and I'm glad you go home ok. I like the princess stove emblem and the bottle opener in the one pic. I bought a bottle opener just like it.

Is the refrigerator original? Goucho or dinette in the front? Do you have any Byam Hooks inside? Would love to see more pics.
