"Dot", 1952 Flying Cloud Airstream
‘Dot’ the Airstream came into our fold in early 2019! She journeyed all the way from Kansas to the ‘Land of Oz’ so we named her Dot, short for Dorothy.
She is 67 years old and, though she was showing her age on the inside, her exterior is in great shape. She has 13 end caps (a very desirable feature in vintage Airstreams) and gorgeous '50s windows. This is a very rare year and model to find in USA, let alone in Australia!
She is mid-renovation!
We have now stripped the interior, reinforced the chassis frame and coated the entire chassis with rust-proof paint, created a new solid subfloor, and we’re now starting to polish her exterior. Next we will replace some old fixtures, work on the belly pan, paint the interior white and get her registered within Victoria. She will be offered as a blank canvas for her new owner to fit out in their own personal style.
She will be for sale for $50k once the above works are done.
NOTE: If you are interested in taking her on as your own project, get in touch ASAP! We would be happy to sell her ‘as-is’. We can send photos via an iCloud link or you can view her on our property. Phone Scott on 0433 112 182 for more information.
