It all started in September 2011 And as of now March 2013 it is almost ready to go. My wife drove from Milford Texas to Ca. to pickup this trailer. When I started to get into it, I found lots of rotted wood. So the tear down started, and I had no idea what I was in for. But after some blood a lot of sweat and a few tears, she's about ready for the road. Enjoy the web site I made to record the progress. Randy and Peggy www.texaslonghorncattle.net/PinkTrailer We were sold the trailer beliving it was a 1963 model, butt I checked the back of the mirror and it is marked 9/14/59. Soooo it might be a 59 or a 60 model.

You're doing a great job! I do believe that every one of these trailers rolling around that have ever sat outside, are just like this under the skin. It's tough to find a place to stop taking them apart when you start pulling the skins off! Keep up the good work!

Love your Pink Deluxe! Yours looks to be a big cousin to my Pink Compact which is titled as a 1961, but I believe to be a year or two earlier as well. The original Pink trailers are hard to come by so congrats. Keep up the great work and I look forward to your progress.
