Is the tear drop portion of the light something that was pre existing? Looks good!
Yes, it's a base for a table lamp that my mom bought me for my birthday off eBay...
The lights are very fitting, and cool looking. Nice job!
Looks Great Glad its all behind you now.
Ryan that’s so cool that you have a Silver Streak Clipper . In my opinion they are the best of all the vintage aluminum trailers.
I have a 1950 Silver Streak Clipper too . I bought it in very nice rolling condition but the interior was mostly gutted . It’s been in my Backyard as yard art since I found it way back in 1985 . My carport was too low by a few inches so I brought it thru the chain link fence along my neighbors driveway. He built a block wall a few years ago so now it’s possibly permanently stuck where it is .
I Always had plans of rebuilding the interior and towing it behind my old ‘40 Plymouth Woodie but time flies when your busy earning a living and I spent a lot of time tinkering with my Gasser so it never got past my layout for the interior.
The Silver Streak Factory was about 20 miles west of me in South El Monte in Rosemead blvd. and the sign was still there in the ‘80’s. I’m not sure when they closed the doors .
Among the vintage trailer collectors and owners these Clippers are known as the Silver Streak “ALIEN EYE” .
I’m thinking of finishing the interior and renting as a tiny house to a family member.
