I came across this as and was intrigued. Anyone have any ideas? Here is a link to the ad: RARE '62 AIRSTREAM (factory one-of-a-kind)
And here is the text of the ad:
I've owned this Airstream for over thirty years and, though I hate the very thought of selling it, current condition$ require me to give that notion serious consideration. I do NOT have a price in mind, but I'm posting this to see if there's any interest in a more comprehensive description, and better pictures! Here's what's so about it:
Tradewind (23') with FACTORY GOLD ANODIZED PANELS, all factory applied gold painted trim (instead of silver) on the hard metal parts.
Tandem axles w/electric and hydraulic brakes
Extra over/under Jalousie windows
Gold metalflake tub
I have the original (not updated) Propane tanks
Front couch pulls out for large bed.
Gaucho across from center galley sink (deep double stainless)
Nobody, not even Airstream, can tell me any hard-fact history of this trailer, and why it, and it alone, has the gold theme. Airstream thought it might have been a "Lead Trailer" for a stateside Airstream caravan, and was equipped with the latest options to show off, but their records don't go that far back. I dunno...
I've attached a bad picture of the thing, so you can get a sense of what I'm talking about, and I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about it.
I have all of the original paperwork, manuals, appliance literature, etc. that I got with the trailer, when I bought it in the mid-seventies.
On a 1-10 scale, it would be worthy of a nice 8.
It is located at my home in Modesto. I have the title in my name and, up until the last coupla years, I've kept it current, though it hasn't been on the road for twenty years.
Again...I'm NOT setting a price....I'm pinging for interest.
