1963 Bambi Airstream trailer built from aircraft metal, in spectacular condition.
Originally from New Brighton, Minnesota and registered on the 9th May 1963 with original papers, this stunning vintage Bambi Airstream travel trailer is one of the finest examples in existence; the same model is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, underlining that Airstreams are works of art as much as classic American motoring pieces. Celebrity 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. In the early 2000s, American style icon and classic car collector Ralph Lauren restored four vintage Airstreams, including two Bambi models, to different themes of rustic, nautical, utility and Western. They were then sold for charity, reaching sums of over $100,000.
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, the Airstream Bambi strikes the perfect balance between authentic period style and contemporary functionality.
The Bambi's lightweight body built from original aircraft-grade metal makes it the ideal summer travel getaway, combining luxurious convenience with vintage nostalgia. The American tradition of camping was revolutionised 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.
Due to the labour-intensive nature of the restoration, only a couple of these luxurious, vintage Airstreams are completed each year.
