This coach was a true, carefully stored, barn find from the Santa Ynez Valley. These coaches are powered by a 454 c.i. Oldsmobile Tornado front wheel drive. This allows it to sit lower to the ground due to the lack of a drive shaft. The air bags allow for easy entrance and exit into the coach without steps. It has many of the original features and novelties of the time period. This includes an original 8 track player/radio with speakers built in throughout the coach. There is also a unique style CB radio that we kept to add to the period authenticity. The original 3 burner stove, oven, vent hood and bathroom equipment are all in tip top working order. The upholstery, cabinets, and draperies are original and reminiscent of the ’70’s. As you can see in the picture, the cabinets are light in color along with the large windows makes the interior light and airy. The exterior has a few scratches and dings, but is in remarkably good shape for its age. The 26′ length makes it easy to maneuver as does its width of 96″ and helps end height worries since it is only 9 feet high with the air conditioner. Additionally, it easily meets all size restrictions for any State or National Park. This is a fully self contained classic that will turn heads where ever you go.
