Rear Window for 1956 Airstream

I just picked up my new project and the obvious thing it needs is a rear window since it was removed to put some sort of a/c in a hole that has since been covered up. Any idea where to get a window? Can I fabricate one out of aluminum? Also where'd the tail lights go?!?
Cheers, John.

John,

The windows come up on EBay from time to time. The same window was used on many trailers of the era. The tail lights were under the patches on either side of the license plate.

It's apparently been stripped of a lot of it's trim...you are also missing the bumper & the rear hatch door, looks like it's been covered over too. Could be a fun project though ~ gotta love the 13-panels & whale tail!
