OK, Ed Hackenbruch is trying to drive me crazy (or more crazy) Cheesy

He sent me photos that a person sent to him.  It is not a bus, but appears to be built on a Freightliner cabover.  It was said to be owned by Aeorsmith and Genesis was the manufacturer.  I have just spent a ton of time searching on Google.

Here are a couple of pictures and I will include two more in the next post.

If Genesis Aircraft converted it I would like too see the interior , they converted Cole's Eagle and is it ever plush and filled with aircraft gadgets and gauges never before seen in a coach. 




good luck

Definitely looks like a cabover chassis. Love the stylin on the rear end. That's some awesome fiberglass work along the sides.
Sure would like to see this thing up close and personal. That entrance door has to be a work of marvel.

Nick, I tried that as well.  Ed has the member issue and looked up the number.  That number is for Wally and Darcy Campbell from South Dakota.

That is definitely a Peterbilt cabover-what they call a fish bowl cabover.  Good Luck, TomC

That is one piece of iron I would like to see in person, real spacey looking.

Neat!

It is a Pete 362 that has been customized. Somewhat like the trucks done by Canopea. That is the only coe I know of with air suspention front axel. I drove one & was impressed with the smoothness, best riding coe I ever drove. They didn't last, not many sold.

372 is correct, it has the streamlined nose.

some information from Wikipedia

372: Designed for high efficiency and driver comfort, this was the most aerodynamic Peterbilt cabover ever built. The nose piece of the cab flipped forward (similar to the old 350 COE of the 1950s) allowing access to maintenance items. 372 was in production from 1988 until 1993. The 372 proved that 10+ MPG can be achieved with a class 8 truck. The truck has the distinction of being the most unusual Peterbilt design offering a sinister Darth Vader look that some also though looked like a motorhome (think Winnebago) or a football helmet.
