Seller probably tried to go that route ; then when the offers came in from the wreckers ; decided to try and get double what they offered him for it.

Interesting. If I knew more about that chassis, I might take a look at it...

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Like I say, it might be worth a call. This might be crazy to say, but it might be drive-able? (scary) I don't know, but it seems crazy for the dealer to try and sell a unit that has to be towed possibly hundreds of miles/more? Or perhaps not....but the odds of selling it locally I think would be nearly nill. Therefore how would they expect someone to spend 14 thousand, then more thousands to tow it to tin buck too. I don't know..... If I get any info I'll post it for the heck of it.

W.D.

That would be a good starting point for a mobile command center or blood bank...


Many things can be made from a gutted unit.

I think it might be the result of a Repo. you might get what's left of it back, but I'm going to field strip it first. You don't pull everything of value out of the coach if you are going to remodel. Anything that wasn't nailed down, and some stuff that was is gone.

Where did it all go?

What would be the value of the engine trans and generator, if they are there and functioning... and that's a big if.

Maybe you can solve this mystery! It'll be interesting to know. It has been there quite a while now.

Even some of the dash is removed, pretty drastic for a repo.
