Smile Looking at an Overlander to purchase...

Hello,

I'm brand new. My grandparents traveled in an Airstream every summer, all over the country. I used to stay with them, when they were local to the Dallas area.

I'm looking at an Overlander to purchase as a project. The serial number is:

S-026420231

From what I've read so far, I understand it was made in California by the "S", and is an overlander by the "0" and it is 26' long...

the rest is unclear. I was hoping someone could direct me to help decode the rest... particlularly the year and sequence number.

I know it will be a lot of work, but these are such neat trailers.

Thanks for any help,

Gary

I believe that the VIN decodes as follows:

S = California Plant of Manufacture
O = Land Yacht Trim Level
26 = Length in Feet (Overlander)
4 = Model year 1964
20231 -- sequential production number

My '64 Overlander's VIN is close to the one that you are considering. Mine has a production number of 20426. I have been told that the sequential production number has additional break-down, but I haven't discovered that part of the mystery.

Good luck with your investigation!
