'58 CA World Traveler: Picture Diary #1

Posted 03-10-2010 at 03:42 PM by aircooled4

It was a rainy day yesterday (9 Mar 10), so good for taking some more pics in the trailer. We found some of the leaks, mainly from windows that we suspected. But the whole thing will be a shell-off restoration anyway, so we're not too dismayed.

View towards the back:

Front shelf; here's where a leak is and has destroyed this:

Original lights are still on the ceiling:

Door under fridge space; here's some more wood to be replaced:

Original table and chair (we believe):

Lights over the curbside twin towards the back that match the lights on either side of the front couch (I love these!!):

The sink and counter top are in AMAZING shape; note that the counter matches that in the bathroom as well as the wall of the shower. Same is true for a pull-out cutting board in the kitchen:

I also love the original light in the bathroom. Again, beautiful condition for being around 50 years!

And finally the door handle; all original. Doesn't look like it's ever been tampered:

We're simply amazed at how much is original on this thing!!

For the next series of pictures, I'll take more inside the cupboards and drawers, and some close ups of the hardware. And any other pictures that turn out really great.

    Perhaps winding down for others... not here!!! Hopefully there will be renewed interest in this golden oldie once we're able to start renovations!

    Just read the whole thread: wow what a find! Alice has the exact formica that we have in our 55 Fying Cloud (so far unrestored but waiting for us in our newly-built shop). I wish our '55 were in as good shape as Alice. Someday!
