This is the one I thought of.....

See if this link works. It is listed as 88' on Vintage birds. Has great photos, no overhead bins. Located in Washington State.

You're right Jeff, it's almost exactly like ours except for that desk in the salon.

Actually Jeff, you wouldn't recognize it now. We changed out the cracked white leather captain's chairs for like new blue ones we bought from Randy. Kip gave us the two barrel chairs out of his '88 WB and we had the dinette shortened 6 inches and reupholstered in blue ultra leather that matched the new front seats.

They were still making a few narrow bodies in '88 Woody. Several of them were done this way to help them compete with the WB's. The other difference is that the engines are mechanical whereas the WB's are DDEC.
