To you know what the serial number is? It should be on a plate by the door. The endcaps don't look correct for a 1957. Also, the 'bath tub' isn't correct for a 57, maybe a 58, unless it was special ordered.

This is an Ohio built Airstream and Ohio switched from 13-panel to 7-panel endcaps approximately July 1, 1957, but did not switch to the 1958 model year until mid-September 1957. However, I see the rear window is a Hehr Clearview, not a Hehr Standard, which suggests this is likely a 1958, as Airstream switched from Hehr Standard to Clearview windows on the front and back (only) on most of the larger models for the 1958 model year (approximately). The serial number would clear this up for sure as the window change may not have occurred exactly at model year change.
