1958 Victor mid century mobile home with time capsule interior

vintage-moble-homeTour-a-Time-CapsuleWe’ve featured a lot of mid century homes here on the blog — but this might be a first — Facebook follower Elise spotted this 1958 Victor mid century era mobile home for sale in Wichita, Kansas. If the snazzy chrome and aqua accents on the outside don’t get you excited, wait until you see some of the retro detailing on the inside.

From the listing on Craigslist:

It is a unique and vintage home that is still very liveable and it’s in a cozy and affordable park with only $120 lot rent. Financing is available on this home.

retro-moblie-homeThis mobile home is proof that mid century style isn’t limited to homes with brick and mortar foundations. A huge thanks goes out to Craigslist seller Eric for allowing us to share his photos here on the blog and to Facebook follower Elise for spotting this mid century marvel.

    Hi. I have a 1960 Trailorama in Palm Springs, CA. Anyone know how to get my vintage Tappan gas wall oven to light? Cannot find model number anywhere, no manuals either. Got the Tappan stove top working fine.

    I just bought a trailer in central Florida – the inspector told me it is a 1965 made by Chevrolet. I was floored! I did not know Chevrolet made anything but vehicles. Ive scoured the Internet but can’t seem to find any old photos or info on MH made by Chevrolet. Have you heard of MH manufacturer by Chevrolet or GM?

    Does anyone have photos of the original yellow/gold appliances, sinks,washer/,dryer in the 50,x10 Following? 1958?

    There is one almost identical next to my in-laws’ property in MS. It’s been sitting up for quite some time and the owners will not sell it and/or the property it’s on. What would be the value of one of these fixed up vs. needing restored?

    I would like to know if they renovate the bathroom and what problems they ran into – I live in a 1970 mobile home that badly needs a bathroom renovation. It has one of the small shallow tubs in now.

    That is so cool! Love the outside especially. Very streamlined. Looks like a vintage train car. 🙂
