1953 flying cloud

Iím curious if people care much about the build number of a vintage airstream. I have a 1953 flying cloud series O3027. In my research I found it was the first year they were made in Ohio. Does this make it the 27 one made in Ohio? Because Iíve seen that O3001 is the first. Does this make it anymore valuable? It is in need of a complete restoration. Im about to trade in for a 86 because I donít want to undertake the restoration. Is this a bad idea?

Here's pictures of 03028 http://vintageairstream.com/photo-ar...oud-21-o-3028/
I don't think the number makes as much difference as the condition.
