Default 1980 FC35 For Sale

I have a 1980 Bluebird for sale. I began restoring her a couple of years ago and have spent 20K + over the past two years my job requires a ton of travel and it’s time to let her go. She just need someone with more time and she will be a beauty.

Standard FC35 as far as I can tell 3208 CAT 210 hp with an automatic 4 speed Allison transmission. 140,000 miles on the Bird but I was told from the prior owner the engine was rebuilt @ 100K so there should be about 40K on the motor. I had the fuel injection system completely rebuilt by Able Fuel systems less than 1000 miles ago. Fuel Tank size: 160 gal. Both engine and generator have fluids changed this year. Transmission fluid is changed as needed, as have belts, hoses and other wear parts. There have been no leaks from engine or transmission but the generator drips from the vent sometimes. Last year she has a new batteries, all of the airbags are brand new!, all new Air conditioners, new fridge. Leveling system is HWH with 4 swing down jacks do not work. The engine driven Air Conditioner looks like it has new components but I have never messed with it. The Original 12kw Generator runs off of the main fuel tank and has an air operated slide out tray for ease of maintenance (it sticks and could use a little help). The paint is a 5 out of ten in my estimation and I would suggest a new paint job. All of the windows are tinted but some of them are cracked but safe. The awnings with aluminum covers all operational and in good condition which include a large patio awning and 4 window awnings. There is an icemaker that works, just has a leak. The air step has a leak in the up position but I just leave it out for now. Carpet is original shag but clean, it has a runner that is in good condition. All seats and drapes are original and in really good shape considering, I never thought of replacing. The original stereos still work including the 8 tracks which I just buy on ebay.com for the fun of it. The kitchen is original and the stove and oven work, the original microwave has a burner that works but the microwave does not. For heat there are 3 propane furnaces have bench tested and cleaned, they work I just haven’t figured out how to get the igniters working. The on-the-road chassis heat that has vents in the front, LR and bedroom area works well. The engine also heats the 12-gallon hot water tank, which is convenient. Freshwater tank: 100 gallon, gray water: 50 and black water 40 gallons. Central vacuuming system does not work but the blender/ meat grinder and powerful mixer attachments which do are all original and never been used.

I have replace many other parts too many to list. I have enjoyed this bus and I won’t let her be sent out to pasture yet. She is too cool to let go.

Asking price is 13,500.00. This is a project coach that is 80 % done, it won’t take much to be worth 35,000 or so.
Please serious inquiries only and I am not interested in a trade. Coach is located in Wylie, Texas.

Feel free to contact me with any questions
