1956 Airstream Cruiser/Overlander 26 - Colorado

For sale is my rare 56 California whaletail Overlander. This trailer was bought 8 years ago. I sent it to Airstream in Ohio to have a shell off new plywood floor and then sent it to a restorer in Tenn for a custom interior to sleep 6-Twisted Silver. The economy caused this high end restorer to cease his business when my trailer was half done. It has a new cork tile floor, new glass for the jalouse window. Complete new interior aluminum shell with new wiring and new insulation with three fantastic fans. Has new custom white, grey and black tanks to be installed. Would need new bottom metal at that point. Timing was such that my kids are now leaving the house and my number 1 built 61 Bambi works for us now. I have stopped project so new owner can choose his/her own custom or one of the original layouts. New twin axles and tires. Could use new paint on steel wheels or custom aluminum mags to bring to perfection. Only the minor dings in a 90% polished outside. Biggest dings in the front corner area where someone over-steered the auto-common condition-minor. When finished you have a 40-50k Vintage Airstream. I am resigned to losing 10k due to not finishing-but I have another aluminum toy-a Yak 52 radial airplane and only so much dinero to go around.
