Welcome from another newcomer with a '63 Bambi.

Perhaps we should create a sub-group of owners of '61-63 Bambis (assuming there's not already one), since we have even more in common than the...

Thanks for the advice, Merry-Go-Can

Older, paid-for...

Several posts in this thread mention the same dealer in Lithonia and Marietta. Would you mind giving me the name. Can't seem to figure it out from the yellow pages. Thanks.

Oops. I should have said 866 Bambis were produced from 1961 to 1963, per the earlier post by Andy R.

The Vintage Airstream site says 1100 were made, without giving details.

Thanks, guys

That is most helpful info.

Looks like we'll have to get the brakes working, even though the 1800 lb. Bambi (believe I read that's all they weighed in '63) will be pulled by a 2500 construction...

When are brakes need for '63 Bambi?

In the first post in this thread, there's speculation the previous owner cut the brake controls because he had a heavy enough tow vehicle (TV) to stop both the trailer and the TV.

What weight...

Great idea! Need inspector in ATL area this week

If somebody in the Greater Atlanta area who knows a bit about a '63 Bambi could take a look at her this week in Decatur, before she's pulled to Asheville, NC, that would be GREAT!

Thanks for the quick replies, 063 and NCB.

O63, I think it's safe to say there's nothing standard about the current wiring, given my Dad's unorthodox methods.

Can somebody kindly point me to whatever equipment diagrams and user manuals are available for the '63 Bambi?

163t103

Don't want to muddy the water, but just for info, the number on my Bambi is 163T103.

This would seem to indicate the last 3 numbers were the sequential numbers for trailers built in Ohio in '63,...
