I would like to confirm that this is a correct identification. Did they make International Flying Clouds? I've just started some demo and will be needing lots of advice along the way. I'm happy to have found this great source of information.

Have you checked out the floorplans and the serial numbers on this site? Very informative. 58FC

I have an earlier 1958 that is in mid rennovation. It has no International markings but does have 12v and 120v systems.

He realizes he'll need to do his own toilet install, etc, so finding the right floor plan that allows for twins and a toilet is the important part. The other factor is distance to acquire it. Like myself he has health restrictions so travelling more than a day out of the province of BC is quite risky. Thus, this keeps us looking in the OR, WA and BC arena's. We are hopefully looking at a rig Thurs or Frid of this week that may be what he needs.

Our friends acquired their '51 Flying Cloud on Monday. He's a shy guy but he'll regi soon and then he can share the details. It's a beauty, almost as it was delivered, but not perfect and needs a few things, but far better than mine was. It's like a time warp inside and I wish mine had been that original. It has some unique things about it I'll let him share. His was sold in '52 so registered as such but his s/n is earlier than my '51 and they look like twins.

Hi Carol and welcome to the wonderful world of Flying Clouds.
Yes there were internatonal models in 1958. If you have not visited it yet Vintageairstream.com has pictures of ss#228604 that would be just the 11th one built after yours. The link is
1958FlyingCloud_228604

Good luck and post some pictures.

Greg

I maybe the second to list the same Flying Cloud. I was looking at your list and saw my Airstream's vin number. I have a 1959 with 22TO198 on the "A" frame of the hitch and the door plate. Made in CA, has a whale tail and now lives in North West Florida. Bought it from a young Lady named Summer, who lived just outside of Mobile, AL, and she saved this Airstream from New Orleans just a week before it was flooded. 48 years old, and still looks better than most trailers I saw that were only 5 years old. have it and a 72 Tradewind, both came to us for use after Hurricainces Ivan and Dennis damaged our home, so we used these while doing repairs. besides the whale tail, it has the Land Yacht mixed with some International upgrades. At the Vintage Rally in Pensacola I was told it it may have been a custom order because it does not follow any floor plan I have come across.

Working on that, trying to get some good images to share and figure out how to post them on here. I am excited with some planned changes. One of the first ones will be replace the flooring with bamboo, at least thats the plan for the moment. I will be back with photos as I can.

Cool! I can't wait to see them.

Adding photos is relatively easy. When you are in the screen to add a new post, scroll down past the text box, past the "Submit Reply" button and you will find a butt which says "Manage Attachments". You will then see a box with 10 placeholders and browse buttons. You can upload up to 10 photos per post. The hardest part is making sure the size of your photos are less than or equal to the maximum size allowed. I've included below the size limits for each filetype followed by the max width x height pixel numbers.

bmp1.00 MB 1600x1600
gif1.00 MB 1600x1600
jpe1.00 MB 1600x1600

jpg1.00 MB 1600x1600

Good luck!

apolaroid,
I found that trailer listed on the Vintageairstream.com picture site.
1959FlyingCloud2

It is certainly a fine looking trailer. I hope you are happy with it.
Greg

yup thats our baby. I had seen that link, but had no idea it was ours because of the interior had been changed. The last owner put sky blue cowboy curtains in, and the seating is now done with denium blue. All that will be changed soon along with Bamboo flooring soon. After looking at the name plate I see it was our little Fly Cloud. Even down to the back Bumper which is really the only one I have seen like it.

Very nice interior layout. It looks like it is in good condition.

Great work Greg.

It's neat to see how many are out there yet. Given the small quantities that were originally built and then the number that have survived it continues to impress me on how well these trailers were built for their day. People are always amazed to learn the age of ours - even fellow Airstreamers. Wally did good!
