This 1963 Airstream Bambi has been meticulously restored to its original interior specification colour scheme of sea foam green with walnut cabinets and tan leather sofa, all to modern day safety standards. Built from lightweight aircraft metal, the Airstream Bambi strikes the perfect balance between authentic period style and contemporary functionality.
Unlike many Airstreams in America that are left by the side of the road to rust, this model is in spectacular condition. The 1963 Bambi has been lovingly cared for by a US collector and kept safely garaged for 40 years. It was shrink-wrapped, shipped to the UK and fumigated, then converted to UK electrics and made fully roadworthy at a cost of £6,000. The restoration process includes 100 hours of exterior polish and full interior restoration following the original 1963 specification.
Originally from New Brighton, Minnesota, the Bambi was registered on the 9 May 1963. The original papers and lifetime warranty from the day of purchase are intact and will be presented at purchase.
Length 16ft by Width 7ft, 2/3 Berth
This 1963 Bambi Airstream trailer is one of only three examples known to exist in this condition, with its complete original shell and rivets. Another is housed in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and fashion designer Ralph Lauren owns the third. The price is therefore reflective of its exceptional rarity and condition.
The American tradition of camping was revolutionised in the 1950s with the introduction of trailers that enabled people to travel over long distance yet maintain home amenities. Airstreams also represent a great future investment for buyers as they gain in value every year.
Airstreams have attracted a cult following in recent years, including many celebrities - some famous vintage Airstream owners include Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks, Sheryl Crow and Matthew McConaughey, whose growing fleet of Airstreams are used as living space, office and film promotion vehicles.
