Rare 1948 pilot panther caravan,English airstream For Sale
Very rare 19ft pilot panther pilot aluminium, 'English Airstream ' caravan, which I've started stripping out the walls and ceiling as the insulation was soaking. Some of the framework needs minor repairs but only sawn softwood which I have. Has the original kitchen and lounge cupboards but no sofa/ beds but easily remade. Has the original flue outlet in the roof but no burner, but easily replaced. Only the layout picture from an original brochure it is the same layout as the top right picture and is a 4 berth with two doors, the rear door has been replaced but has the original hinges, so could be remade if required. The other door is original but screwed shut so will need work but very basic framework. Has some original glass but a lot was smashed previously so has been temporarily repaired with Perspex, but the original frames which I believe are chromed brass are there with original catches, and flat glass. Both roof lights will need re doing outside. Some edges of the original floorboards will need repair. The outer skin has been taken back to the bare aluminium but the roof is still painted, but good aluminium which could polish up. Some dents etc which could be knocked out or a patch riveted over easily. Has the original pilot badge on the rear and chrome hand rail. Has lovely canopies / sun shades over each window which are unusual and not on the later pilots. Far rarer than airsteams and would be worth a lot of money when finished. Based in cornwall about 15 miles from truro/ st Austell so bear that in mind. Was towed here last year, but only about 15 miles, so
Would recommend trailer/ low loader. Ideal for steam rallies, collectors, live off grid, touring, office, glamping, tow behind your classic vehicles. I would prefer cash on collection and collection within 7 days.
