1963 Airstream Trade Wind
Overview Purchased in 2007 after being away from Airstream since I was a young man. Joined WBCCI and was able to get my Dad's original number 1200. He got #1200 in 1957. He bought his 1st. Airstream in 1955 and was a member of the WBCCI until his death in 1987. He owned 7 Airstreams. I restored my Trade Wind in 2008 and 2009.
I purchased this vintage because it was my favorite era of all the Airstreams my Dad owned.
