For those of you that saw the photos of the 51 Flying Cloud, this Bambi is a cream puff.:lol: I figured that someone can use a part or two to complete their Bambi.
Now I need your help:excl: As I towed it home I remarked to my wife how easy it towed and how well I could see around it. Here's the problem! Sometime during the trip home she fell for the cute little feller. "YOU CAN'T SCRAP IT"
I'm counting on at least 50 good reasons to cut and run, please don't let me down.

P.S...There isn't a good panel on the whole trailer. It does have a good door and a working L-77 lock..

One of the interior. This will need some repair.:brows:

a few good parts
I can see why your wife wants to keep it. I love the little ones.

In the event you decide to continue the scrap... is there a fridge available?

I could use the tail light lenses for my Bambi II restoration. Mine are there but not in great shape- faded and cracked. I was planning on going the repro route from Vintage Trailer supply.

Are the lenses in good shape on the '61? What is the story of this trailer? That is some serious damage!

Lenses plus...
Actually- what was I thinking? My Bambi spent 25 years untouched in the New Jersey salt region- I need whole tail light assemblies as my backing plates are so rusted out they barely exist- and no repros are being made. I would be very interested in the entire tail light units.

There is a refrigerator but the ammonia is leaking out. The inside is in beautiful condition.

Ben this trailer is featured in the photo archives...bottom left column..16TDSS1659. Several winters ago snow load caused the roof of the building to collapse on it. It's sad that such a nice little trailer got crushed.

Bambi parts needed

I found out my 61 Bambi does not have a black water tank! Would you happen to have this part? Should be fiberglass. Maybe the shutoff valve too. I know its been a few years since I got your interior parts but just got water system working and new heater..installed new toilet and then found it just drops to the ground!

I would also take the two rear vented doors and the main entry door if still available......
