Amazing restoration of 1974 Winnebago motorhome

I ran across this today. Thought some you Winnie and vintage fans might get a kick out of it. Sure a great way to showcase your skills.

It looks better in person lots of attention to detail not to mention lots of manufacturer cash and product contributions made to the project.

So.. new chassis, new sides, new everything inside (with the exception of a sink and a couple incidentals).. and they call it "restoration"... Hahahaha... it's NEW with an old registration paperwork attached.
Would probably cost more to do than to buy a new one and bolt in two or three "vintage" parts.

I went to the website of the guy who did it. The point seems to be less about restoration than showcasing the skills of the repair shop. Seems to me they have the ability to build a coach any way you want from the ground up.

Pretty cool rig. You sure wouldn't expect all stuff in a rig like that.

I was thinking about restoring one of those, a little more natural than that with a different drive train set up. Reality TV has just about destroyed real life as it was known ... Yep those guys are good ... hellva a Brave

I love those old Winnebago's. Classic motor homes. I would like to own one but the DW wont have it.

Oh well would be a lot more maintenance.

As muffin336 stated, it was displayed at a FMA Rally in Goshen. Although nicely updated & sleek, it was too modern for me & didn't fit the era of the coach.

I prefer restorations to be to like-new, original showroom-condition, with "hidden" 21st century safety/convenience updates. The charm of that era RV is lost when these restorations are done with such visible modern equipment.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

It's amazing what cubic dollars can do. The shop that did the work has mad skills for sure. I think they they've actually done it...made a silk purse from a sows ear.
