Title: 1968 Airstream Caravel
17 - Indiana
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.
“Airiel” is a very rare, iconic 1968
, complete with “Baby Moon” hubcaps. I have owned this charming little collector’s item for 6 years and am selling her reluctantly only to purchase a larger vintage Airstream. The skin is in very good condition, perfect for mirror polishing. At ca. 2500 lbs. the Caravel
tows well behind most passenger vehicles. Made in Cerritos, California, she has ghost WBCCI numbers and the names of the original owners from Ft. Wayne, IN, who provided me with “baby pictures” of the Caravel, which I can provide along with original documentation and an owner’s manual.
She is one of the few Caravels with a four-person dinette and large table that converts to a rather roomy bed. Except for the kitchen cabinets, cook top and accordion door the Caravel interior is entirely original. All curved glass windows are original.
"Shag" wheels (very large casters) attached to the single axle in case of problem with tire or wheel.
