Who Signed the original Waranty

I'm working on my 1963 California built Ovelander and the warranty has seen better days....I can barely make out a signature. Does anyone know who would have signed the Lifetime Warranty Facsimile that was attached to the inside of the cabinet door?

Mine was signed by Andrew J Charles .... But Ohio not Cali

Interestingly mine has a sticker in the upper right corner that basically says Airstream and Kelsey Hayes Co accept no responsibility for the brakes if the tow car isn't equipped with Kelsey Hayes brake controller and wiring....

Ours has the same sticker. It's from Ohio too. Thankfully it's in great shape; someone kept it in a plastic sleeve in a binder. I was thinking of framing it when we get our restoration done.

We have all the original instruction manuals to everything in our trailer and a wiring diagram too if anyone wants me to scan them.

There HAS to be somebody with an early '60's California built who still has a readable copy of the warranty!

The warrantees were signed for the company president by their secretaries...
The lifetime warranty is to the original purchaser.

Well that narrows it down...
who was the Company Prez of the California plant in Nov 1962?

Well...who's name would the Secretary put on the Warranty in 1962?...

Wouldn't it have been Art Costello? I believe Andrew Charles was sent from Cali in the early 50’s to open the plant in Ohio...
