Ownership History: We purchased this beautiful 1954 Flying Cloud in 2020, fully intending to do all renovations ourselves. The seller was a gentleman in Tennessee who had taken great care to preserve as much original furniture as possible. We now feel our years catching up with us and unable to do the renovation. I hope this project goes to someone who loves Vintage Airstreams as much as we do.

Why did you select this model?: We loved the old Flying Clouds from the 1950’s. Beautiful rear panels and much of the original furniture is still inside.

Why are you selling?: We fully intended to renovate this beauty but feel our years catching up with us.
