1956 was the very first appearance of the Caravel model nameplate. Early models were exact in structure and layout to a 1955-1957 “Bubble” (with no nameplate), but had a “C” after the serial number. In subsequent years these models were often called 18 footers. The Caravel name reappeared in earnest in 1965 when production began again with popular 17' models.
