The VIN would lead me to believe it is a 1959 Ohio built FC double. Maybe 66Overlander can confirm. Good luck.

The 659 in the bottom right corner is month and year of manufacture.

I take part of that back. 1959 CALIFORNIA built FC, not Ohio.
Take a look at Capt Jonesí Flying Cloud Registry. That will show the VIN number spreads. Those were taken from the Airstream Picture Archives.

Yes, this is a 1959 22' Flying Cloud built in June 1959 in California.
