In Pa Dave . yes I admit I feel tempted but I'm still leaning on a rear bath model . I also think this coach will need much more work than I'm willing to have done to make her right . But man do I want that TV

Thanks for thinking of me Chip .

My wife said buy!! She likes the twins in the rear, but I think you're right Al...too much work to make it right and I already have everything this bus needs done (to include a tall gear in the rear). Wouldn't be worth an upgrade for twins, a blender, and a sweet TV. Now if it had levelers and a Turbo ...

What exactly constitutes too much work? Any old PT or FC that hasn't had all the stuff on the roof redone and resealed is going to need all the stuff on the roof redone and resealed. It's not that hard or even expensive. Once that's done you can fix the wavy ceiling panels. The rest of that FC looks mint, honestly.

It's a very good period piece, you could wait a long time before finding one this original, if that was your intent...

Default Lots of work?

Sometimes I don't get what people think.
Tires, new electrons, fluids, fuel and an *** in the drivers seat is what it needs.
Caulk the roof when it gets home.
That thing is a time capsule.
It will be interesting to see what a clean little bird from that era will command
at auction.
Thanks for the link Critt.

Having owned a few coaches over the past 35 years I have learned the real work is under the coach . Even a well kept coach requires time and money to keep her road worthy . Didn't they say this has been off the road for 15 years or so ? I guess you could donate her to the RV Museum in Indiana .

Also Andy I'm not the do it yourself kind of guy as you and others are . Call me the driver as Donald Sutherland said in Kelly's Hero's , " I just drive them man " So Take in some rays today , it's a beautiful day

Al, this one is not airbag equipped, leaving you with basic truck air brakes and routine maintenance. It definitely pegs the cool-o-meter with the untouched interior.

We know several owners that really like & own the 3208NA, air brake springer.
They boast the highest mpg, slower & lighter weight, require little maintenance.
