Standing in front of this 1965 “veteran” of the “Wally Byam Caravan Club, the Ghost numbers of 4585 above the front window, gently whisper multiple memories of rallies and caravans winding across our beautiful America. Oh…. the memories of long convoys of multiple glistening aluminum little homes, like a silver river winding it’s way into the sunset!
This Airstream has gone through a methodical lengthy restoration. Body was not removed from the frame, however almost every other aspect has been addressed. All interior contents were removed, floor repaired where needed, then a total rebuild of all structural components. All roof vents were replaced with Dometic “FanTastic” powered vent units, along with the Dometic AC unit approximately 5 years ago. All glass was replaced (plastic had been installed over it’s past). The outside has been stripped and buffed out with “polishing pads”. It has a great shine, not mirror finish, just a well kept and maintained look….it has “patina”….
