Check out this old timer in storage at an RV park in Nevada. Anyone have any idea what is?

It's locked inside a security fence, but I sure would like to get around to see it from the other side. I'd guess it to be around 26 ft long, maybe a little longer. You can see a little eagle above the wind shield and the license says eagle. I wonder if that is a clue.

Yes, it was a little dark last evening when I took the shot and didn't see this emblem and misread the license plate. I don't have any idea when something like this was made. The chassis certainly looks heavy duty and it has very large tires on it. Interesting vehicle and a major task should one try to restore it. It would be great to see it done though.

Something like that, with a slide out, would be GREAT!

OK, even without a slide out that thing is just oozing with character....

Looks like a submarine from the windshield. I'd name it Nautilus or Seaview.

The Fageol was made by the Twin Coach Company in Kent Ohio.
They came in bus and van style.
The one in the photo appears to be a van conversion.


Here is a Video of some Fageol busses.
