Name That Airstream

Trying to get my hands on my first Airstream to gut and restore. Just received a few photos from someone and I'm trying to ID the year and model. Any help would be great. Also, what would you pay/offer base off of the photos alone?

Thanks for the help!

Maybe....by looking at the door and windows, axles, etc. it may be a 1958-1960 Overlander.

This link may help..........

That would be my guess also.

The door in door, the door swing direction, the double jalousie windows and vent locations are clues. The measurement is done from ball to bumper.

I'll take it one more step, looks like a California model, base on the refrigerator vent, and a double bed. If you post a VIN number (if available), maybe we can get the exact year & model.

Thanks for the help! If I go tomorrow I may have some more info to share.

What would your offer price be based on the photos?

Looking at some other threads it seems like this is it? I've never seen such a short VIN. I looked for info on how to determine year based on the number for pre-66 models but didn't have any luck. Any help would be great!

The serial number leads to a 1958 overlander

Thanks Janet, and this restored one's VIN [O-7588] is only 16 lower than the OP's VIN [O-7604]:

which is pretty spiffy! [You can click on a photo to enlarge and scroll through all the larger photos.]

Good find SteelyCal! Sorry I can't help with pricing, but maybe some others can give a ballpark Hi/Lo estimate of its value?

Thanks Janet and Peter! I brought her home! She's going to need quite a bit of work, but I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty

Congratulations! I assume you mean that you towed her home, on her own tires/bearings/axles? That in itself would be a major "plus" to the equation.

Have fun with your new project!

Peter

PS -- although your bottom right photo in the OP suggests maybe you had to bring her home on a trailer? Hope you got a good deal in any event. And a belated welcome to the forum!

I managed to bring her home for a very low price and did tow her on her own tires/bearings/axles (which I doubted was possible from seeing just the photo you're mentioning). But, the tires held air and are still holding perfectly. Still, they'll need to be replaced before doing any real traveling. But, for now I'm turning my focus to repairing the belly and getting her sealed up before winter sets in.

Thanks again!

Haha, I know! I just saw this too. I'm really grateful that I was able to bring mine home for $2000. A price I haven't seen around here and one that is more than reasonable given my intentions and overall condition. Sure, it's been used as a mouse hotel, but otherwise, I'm surprised by the integrity for the age. Here goes nothing!

You know about Hanta Virus and the need to be very careful with mouse droppings, right? Common in the Southwest but there have been deaths in the NE too. 2kOK!

PS -- Search results for Hanta Virus FYI.

I do, thank you for checking. I have a P100 respirator, full body zip suit, gloves, and eye protection. And, I'm armed with bleach to make sure it's done right. While some may say it's overkill, I'd much rather be overly cautious and get to enjoy this puppy!

Sounds good. I had to help clean out an old barn with this risk present, and we drenched the suspect areas with a 50/50 bleach solution sprayed on each collection of droppings and nest areas, one day in advance, and let it sit overnight. Not sure if you have this option in your many locations, as the dripping solution can stain whatever it hits. In an old barn, this was not a problem.

The next day, removal of the soggy messes was fairly easy and we felt pretty secure with good respirators and gloves on (which were disposed of immediately). Portable electric heaters and fans, with windows cracked open, helped dry out the areas for a couple of days afterwards.

Glad you realize the risks and are taking precautions. Yup -- might as well stick around to have fun with the new Airstream!

Peter
