SUZIE Q
1953 Flying Cloud 


This 1953 Flying Cloud has been given a new life. We are slowly restoring every inch of her original interior. The decades old exterior has been polished to a mirror-like shine, and we have begun to restore her interior. Having spent most of her life in barns or under a tree, we are hoping to bring the fifties back inside her walls and take her on the road to shows and events.

 

Project Overview

SYNOPSIS

Suzie Q is our personal pet project. Her restoration will take place in the background when we have moments to spare. We are trying to restore the elements that make her so special, and adding our ESK twist.

DESIGN NOTES

We are restoring this trailer to look as if it drove straight out of the 50's. Using the styles we love most from that time period, and without adding modern luxuries, we hope to keep the overall feel authentic to it's original time period... minus the avocado floor tile.
