Saving for my records--Airstream ad copy

Jason was speaking my language, so I am saving the copy of the ad that led to my purchase of my 1962 Airstream Safari. I am so stoked!

>>>Ad copy below<<<

Here's a rare opportunity.. a very desirable size, year and model layout of a classic Airstream.. In my opinion, this is the ideal size for the do it all Airstream. You can take it anywhere, behind just about anything, it's big enough for more than a long weekend.. and small enough to not tax your small truck yet still get into those more remote areas..
This particular trailer is nearly all original and very intact. Showing no amateur modifications. All appliances, cabinets, lighting and hardware are all original and present... Has the dinette up front with two additional leafs, extending out to a 48" table! This light hardwood is all original and shows no de-lamination. "lifetime warranty" plaque is still present.
Very classic, desirable year with the door inside the door and a functional jalousie window. This combination was only used a few short years.
The body is overall in excellent condition.. showing normal marks but no major dents, creases, patches or problems.
I've tested both the AC and DC systems.. all lights and outlets are working. I have not tested the propane or plumbing systems.. however, the appliances appear to have little wear or signs of use.. the old style catalytic heater is awesome.. no power needed, simple, quiet and effective unit.
This Airsteam would make a great use it as you go project. I hope its future is not a "gut".. and an eventual IKEA makeover.. that would be a shame. It's much more fun to use them then to gut them and then stare at the empty disaster in your driveway.. much much cheaper to repair as you go too. This is a great candidate for your summer adventures and one that will continue to appreciate in value.
